Judge: Prosecutors must give media recordings used as evidence in Long Island murder trial

A Long Island judge says prosecutors must give the media all video and audio recordings, including 911 calls, used as evidence in the trial of a parolee charged with killing a police officer and another man.

The decision initially appeared as a broader victory for media covering Nassau County courts, but Judge Jerald Carter said later the ruling only applies to the parolee's case.

He says lawyers can still argue to keep some evidence private.

Carter's ruling came after lawyers for The Associated Press, Newsday and News 12 argued evidence presented at Darrell Fuller's trial becomes public property once it's played in court.

Prosecutors and a county attorney had argued they were legally barred from disseminating the evidence. In court they said they'd leave that decision to the judge.
