Local courtroom cameras process to move forward
WOODSTOCK – McHenry County court officials say they want to move forward with cameras in the courtroom, although there’s no timetable for when cameras will make their first appearance.
“We are looking to move forward with extended media coverage in the 22nd Circuit,” Court Administrator Dan Wallis said. “In the very near future, we will be reaching out to ... media outlets that would potentially cover courtrooms here to sit down to discuss how exactly that will work.”
Illinois has allowed news cameras in the Supreme Court and appellate courts since 1983, but was one of 14 states where cameras in trial courtrooms were not allowed or were restricted so much that they were hardly used.
