Judge Denies Motion to Broadcast Pre-Trial Proceedings in George Floyd Murder Trial


The four former officers charged in the death of George Floyd requested to have the pre-trial proceedings recorded and broadcasted.

The judge denied the motion.

The judge denied the motion in part, to not taint the jury pool any further.

The former officers made the request because they feel it is necessary to promote the possibility of a fair trial.

In order for the proceedings to be recorded and broadcasted all parties must agree to it, the judge, prosecutor and defense.

The former officers are scheduled to appear in court on Monday.
