Prof. Jensie Anderson, Innocence Center Profiled in Salt Lake Magazine

The October issue of Salt Lake magazine includes a profile of Professor Jensie Anderson, a clinical professor at the S.J. Quinney College of Law and president of the Rocky Mountain Innocence Center (RMIC).

The article “Seeking Justice,” written by Dan Nailen, provides an overview of the Rocky Mountain Innocence Center’s efforts, including the story of Bruce Dallas Goodman, who was released from the Utah State Prison in 2004 after DNA evidence proved he didn’t kill and rape his girlfriend. It was almost entirely due to the RMIC’s efforts that Goodman was released after almost 20 years in prison.

Anderson says the article casts welcome light on developments at RMIC, which include hiring an executive director, Katie Monroe, and the creation of a related clinic at the College of Law that provides students with practical experience in field research. She hopes the press coverage will “highlight the Center’s accomplishments and educate the public about our work in the community.”

The October issue of Salt Lake magazine is on news stands now.
