Hennepin County judge: Body-cam footage is off-limits to public

James Eli Shiffer at the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Ivy Bernhardson, the chief judge in Hennepin County, laid down the rules in December on how prosecutors and defense attorneys should handle video footage from police body cameras before criminal trials.

The bottom line: Don’t go sharing the videos with the public.

Despite Bernhardson’s order, state law requires any investigative data, including video from body cameras, to become public if it’s formally entered into evidence in a trial. Most cases never go to trial, however.
