Now on YouTube: Sentencing Hearings
In January 2005, I wrote about an Ohio judge who posted video recordings of the sentencing hearings in his courtroom to his Web site. Now, Medina County Common Pleas Judge James L. Kimbler is using the popular video-sharing site YouTube to bring these videos to an even larger audience.
Kimbler tells Associated Press that YouTube lets him post the videos more quickly. Before, it took two weeks after sentencing for the video to appear online. Using YouTube, Kimbler says, his law clerk can post the hearings within hours of their completion.
As of this writing, six Kimbler videos are available on YouTube. As AP notes, you won't see Kimbler in the videos -- the camera is on the defendant.
