Cameras in court pass first test, but county to wait and see
Nicholas T. Sheley was on trial for murder earlier this month in Whiteside County – and the media had a trial of its own.
Sheley was convicted of beating 93-year-old farmer Russell Reed in 2008 during a weeklong killing spree that allegedly left eight people dead.
The trial was considered to be the first major test of cameras in the courtroom since the Illinois Supreme Court created a pilot program in January allowing still photography and video cameras, although on a limited basis.
