This bothered me a lot too. After it was brought up, I almost felt like I needed a shower.
I'm not sure what the laws are in the US, or if they vary from state-to-state, but at least here in Quebec, this would be a big no-no. As an example, there was a case in my neck of the woods where three teenagers broke into a house and killed the elderly couple who lived there and stole the money they found in the apartment - I think it was for drugs. This was back in 1994.
There were many letters to the local newspaper that could not be published at the time, because you could infer from the details who the kids actually were - and underage people cannot be identified in the press for a crime - even for murder. Many years later, one of them was identified - only because he brought up the point in court because it was somehow related to the current charge that he was being tried for. To this day, the other two kids have never been publicly identified and cannot be unless they permit it, because it's against the law. So, while I have zero sympathy for the P for what his sister claims he did, I was surprised by all the airing of the dirty laundry.
Levin really seems to be going for the seamiest cases possible these days - though he appears to have found his razors and is either using some funky Zoom background or pulled a gold lamé curtain out of storage to hang behind him.
