Techie Talk-Video Teleconferencing System in Johnson County-What about Somervell?

2 September 2010 at 4:58:30 PM

I cannot remember when this was, but sometime in the past the Somervell County Commissioners talked about getting an updated computer presentation system for the district courtroom (NOT the county commissioners courtroom). As memory serves, the camera was to be for the attorneys to be able to present video and other types of presentations in the courtroom. I hadn't heard anything about it for a while, and then read this in the Cleburne paper in July about the videoconferencing system they got.  The purpose of the system is this:

“That’s about a 20-hour round-trip,” 413th District Judge Bill Bosworth said. “Before, we would have to send someone to pick him up, bring him in for his court appearance and take him back. That defendant’s situation was compounded further by the fact he’s in a federal prison, which means federal marshals would probably also have to accompany him.”

Thanks to the Guinn Justice Center’s new video teleconference system, the defendant managed to participate in the hearing without ever leaving La Tuna, saving Johnson County, and the federal prison system substantial time and taxpayer money.

I was wondering if this was the same system that Somervell County was planning to get, ie, something that would interact with the one in Johnson County or what. Have found out some about it from Darrell Morrison (thank you, Darrell). The system was budgeted for last year, to come out of security funds, no grants, but wasn't at the highest priority. It is this year, however, at a high priority, for 35,000. Not ordered yet, so therefore not installed. Morrison said the system is sort of like the *little brother* of the one in Johnson County.

The technie nerd in me wants next to find out which system it is, what it's capabilities are, etc.
