Sketches from Bales’ sentencing hearing
When cameras aren’t allowed in a court of law, old-fashioned sketching can do the job of capturing the visual information we are accustomed to seeing in photos.

Bales is the U.S. soldier who pleaded guilty of killing 16 Afghan villagers in Kandahar in 2012.
I was able to be in the courtroom today as witnesses for the prosecution and defense teams took the stand. Below are my sketches and here is the story filed by Times reporter Lewis Kamb.
