Eyecare records have taken on a prominent role in an Illinois case where reckless homicide and other crimes are being alleged.

Judge Robert Pilmer recently ruled that prosecutors will be able to view the eyecare records of Nehemiah Williams, Kendall County Now reports.

In addition to reckless homicide, Williams is charged with failure to report an accident that resulted in personal injury or death, along with driving with a suspended license.
