Assignment #315 – Curtis Allgier

Curtis Allgier apologized to the family members of his victim before being sentenced.

This one started off pretty rough. The assignment read something like, The judge might kick you out of the courtroom if you take too many photos.

Weird, I’d never had a problem. But before I knew it, I was directed to sit in the gallery, right next to the victim’s many family members. It’s a horrible position, shooting from behind. For the first ten minutes or so all I could do was try to shoot through the tiny gap between two of the many officers in the courtroom providing security.
