William Balfour will not have a televised trial. At least that is the word from Chicago sources who say the judge presiding over his case, Illinois Judge Charles Burns, is imposing strict guidelines for the high profile trial.
As reported last week, jury selection began Thursday with Judge Burns making it clear he won’t tolerate any disruptions, tweeting from the courtroom, or leaks of information.
According to the AP, Judge Burns has also placed a gag order on attorneys and gave prospective jurors a 66-question form to fill out detailing what they might know about the case and/or Jennifer Hudson.
William Balfour is charged with killing Hudson’s brother, mother and nephew in October of 2008.
Jennifer Hudson may testify in the case.
