DeKalb County added to state pilot program

Three more Illinois counties have been added to the state's pilot program allowing cameras in trial courtrooms. The Illinois Supreme Court announced the additions of DeKalb, Lake and Kendall. The order is effective immediately. 25 counties in nine judicial districts have participated.

Illinois' cameras in courts pilot program is more than six months old. A spokesman for the state Supreme Court says so far, everything appears to be working fine.
