Judge Rules On Cameras At Bryan Kohberger Trial

via Law&Crime Network

Idaho District Judge John Judge granted Bryan Kohberger’s request to remove media cameras from the courtroom in the quadruple university student murder case.

Although the media will no longer be allowed to record, the proceedings will still be streamed by the court.

The decision follows concerns about intense media focus and the violation of court directives.

“It is the intense focus on Kohberger and his every move, along with adverse headlines and news articles, that leads the Court to conclude that continued photograph and video coverage inside the courtroom by the media should no longer be permitted,” the judge wrote.

“Friday’s order states members of the media and public will not be allowed to record their own video, audio or take photographs of future hearings,” Idaho courts spokesman Nate Poppino stated.

“However, during future public hearings a court-provided livestream will be available through Judge John Judge’s YouTube channel.”

“Additionally, defense counsel has raised continued concerns with video footage and photographs capturing private documents on counsel table. This is again in violation of the Court’s directives,” the judge said.

“The State has also raised issues of vulnerable victims and witnesses being filmed during testimony. At this juncture, the Court has no confidence that directives to stop photographing or videoing during such testimony would be adhered to.”

Kohberger is accused of fatally stabbing four University of Idaho students and could face the death penalty if convicted.
