Defense attorney protests camera at 17-year-old’s trial

At the trial of 17-year-old Demetrius Brown for the burglary of a Milwaukee Walgreens, defense attorney Christian Eichenlaub protested the presence of cameras due to Brown’s age, Fox6 reported on July 23.

Court Commissioner Maria Dorsey said she saw nothing particularly sensitive about this case and believed that the one camera present was not a problem. Eichenlaub requested that the judge review Dorsey’s opinion before moving forward.

Four individuals were caught on camera entering the Walgreens and leaving later with store products. Brown’s fingerprints were found at the scene, and he made statements that seem to admit to the crime. Prior to this charge, Brown had three felony burglary charges as a juvenile.
