The Act provides that a child victim of rape, sodomy, child molestation, cruelty to children, or sexual assault may testify out of court, and such testimony will be broadcast in the courtroom by way of closed circuit television. During testimony, only the judge, attorneys, camera operators, and a representative of the child may be in the room with the child. The Act does not prohibit the presence of both the child and the defendant in the courtroom at the same time for the purpose of identification.
