Jensie Anderson, Clinical Professor of Law at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law and president of the Rocky Mountain Innocence Center (RMIC), was interviewed for a May 8 CityWeekly article tracing the case of Debra Brown, who was freed after 17 years in the Utah State Penitentiary, thanks to the efforts by RMIC attorneys. As the article recounts, in 2011, Brown was the first person in Utah to be found factually innocent under a new Utah statute. However, the Utah Attorney General’s office has appealed the district court’s decision and, as the article states, “Brown’s fate now hangs in the balance of a Utah Supreme Court decision . . . on whether her exoneration will be upheld.”
