    Texas County Prosecuting Attorney Mike Anderson stands beside a monitor during an arraignment hearing done via video Tuesday morning in courtroom A at the Texas County Justice Center. Visible on the screen is defendant Donald E. Rutz, of Cabool, who is incarcerated in the Missouri Department of Corrections facility at Fulton. Rutz was being arraigned on charges of manufacturing marijuana, in front of 25th Circuit Court Presiding Judge Tracy Storie, who was visible to Rutz by way of the Polycom camera mounted on top of the monitor.

A new technology designed to save taxpayers' money is being incorporated in Texas County's law enforcement and judicial systems.

Several areas of the Texas County Justice Center have been outfitted with equipment allowing for arraignments to be done by video. Using cameras and monitors, judges and other officials can now conduct arraignment procedures with representatives of jails, departments or agencies in any similarly equipped location.
