Camera-less courtroom motion filed by Sanford's ex denied

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV/AP) -- Jenny Sanford's request to have cameras banned from the courtroom during Wednesday's trespassing hearing with her ex-husband has been denied, according to court records.

The former governor's ex-wife wanted a judge to ban cameras or recording equipment from the courtroom when a judge hears trespass allegations.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reported last week that attorneys for former South Carolina first lady Jenny Sanford made the no-cameras request Friday in Charleston County Family Court.

Jenny Sanford filed a trespassing complaint against her former husband for entering her Sullivan's Island home in February to watch part of the Super Bowl with their youngest son when she wasn't at home.

The hearing Thursday comes two days after voters select Republican Mark Sanford or Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch in the election for a vacant seat in the state's 1st Congressional District.
