Illinois cameras in courts expands to 24th county

text size: AAA

The Illinois Supreme Court has added the first county in central Illinois to its cameras in courtrooms pilot program.

The high court on Tuesday said news cameras and microphones would be allowed in McLean County trial courtrooms. McLean County is the 24th Illinois county participating in the pilot project. The state Supreme Court approved the program earlier this year. Illinois Supreme Court Chief Justice Thomas Kilbride says nearly a quarter of Illinois counties are part of the program.

The order is effective immediately.

McLean County is part of the 11th Circuit, which also includes Ford, Livingston and Woodford counties. However court authorities say they want to experiment in McLean County before expanding to the rest of the circuit.
