The DC Superior Court is revamping security after a murder suspect managed to deceive security at the court and walk out of the building.
   
According to theWashington Post, court officials will see a mug shot of each defendant before entering the courtroom.

    Last week, James Brewer swapped I.D. bracelets with another inmate who was locked up on misdemeanor charges.
   
Brewer turned himself in Saturday afternoon.
   
He's accused of shooting a man in Southeast last month.  Brewer is being held without bond.
