Crime & Legal Issues

Covering the criminal justice system has been some of the most challenging and rewarding work I’ve done in my career. As a journalist, I had the task and privilege of helping people who experienced pain and trauma tell their own stories, and thereby reach toward justice. Building a deep understanding of the American justice and political system has helped me better understand the forces that uphold, and sometimes threaten, our safety and freedoms. I believe justice means having agency to shape and share our stories, and I’ve been honored to witness and help in that process.
