Circuit Court Judge Tony Heckemeyer, who hears cases in Scott and Mississippi counties, said he is a little surprised about the move to place a camera in the courtroom. He pointed out in the 12 years he has served as a judge, only three or four times has the media indicated interest in cases under his jurisdiction. Although he doesn't oppose the change, he expects defense attorneys will object to requests to bring cameras into the courtroom.
