Benas has also been the "go to" courtroom artist for the area media outlets.  She was privileged to be the only artist allowed in Federal Court recently.  No photographers, for newspapers or TV, were permitted in the Courthouse during the Trial.  Each day, the drawings had to be photographed outside the courthouse (on the street!) and were distributed among the various news media reporting on the trial.    Later, three of those drawings were used in a Special produced by ABC News.
