About me...

Over the past two years I have become very interested in how the media impacts the legal system. Being from Memphis, I decided to focus on the Noura Jackson case due to the excessive amount of local and national attention it garnered. Over the past year I have been studying the case for my journalism master's project at the University  of Memphis. During this time I have interviewed several parties involved in the case including, the judge, the prosecution, the defense, a homicide detective involved with the case, journalists who covered the case, a book writer who is writing a story on the case and friend of Noura Jackson's who was called to testify at the trial. I have learned a lot about this case and working on this project has increased my knowledge about how the media and the legal system. I hope that as you look through my website you take something from the information that I have shared. 

My advice for all journalists is to make sure that you cover a story accurately, looking at every angle and don't be scared to ask questions along the way. The legal system is complex and can be confusing for those who don't study law on a regular basis. Remember, when you showcase someone in a negative light, they probably won't talk to you again. I'd weigh my options and keep in mind they probably won't give you an interview again. Is it worth it? That answer is left up to you.

I appreciate all of the people who have helped me along the way!
