Just a question:

Yesterday, it was discussed somewhat on Greta and LKL, that the Rocha family has said they prefer NOT to have the trial televised.

One of the commentators, can't remember which one, said the Judges lean toward the victim's family in making the decision.

Has anyone heard anything further? I know the Judge should rule on it before the Sept. 9th Hearing. I just wondered if anyone heard any comments from anyone about the liklihood that the Judge will ban camera's in the courtroom.

I did not see any of those shows last night, but I watched the Rocha interview with Katie Couric. On that program Sharon Rocha did in fact say they do not want the proceedings televised. She said it feels too personal to have splashed all over. However, she said they do not have any say in the matter. (Whether unbeknownst to her the victim's family's wishes are taken into account I do not know, but that is what she said.)

Hi Neenah..I know I'm a little late but I saw most of the shows last night and most of the talking heads for the most part agreed that the judge will more than likely allow cameras at the trial reguardless of the Rochas pleas..Saying that the accused has a right to a a fair trial in a public forum would over-ride victims wishes.
