Real-World Impacts

Legend
Real World Impact
Self reported impact on the communities the newsroom serves.

Our work has led to the release of a state prison offender and forced local prosecutors to change how they investigate fatal law enforcement shootings. Our investigative work in federal court led judges to sentence individuals swept up in a 2016 drug sting to time served rather than years behind bars as federal prosecutors wanted. Our work has led to changed state laws in the areas of disclosure for lobbyists and state lawmakers. State lawmakers have repeatedly championed issues after we've written about them, including the state's lax approach to collecting racial/ethnic data in the state criminal justice system. .
