Professor Hughes publishes Op-Ed in Baltimore Sun

Professor William Hughes' op-ed about wrongful convictions is now in the Sunday 'Baltimore Sun' print edition.

Professor Hughes is an Assistant Professor of English in the Department’s Journalism Program. In 2015 his reporting work on the wrongful conviction of Johnny Hincapie led to a New York State Supreme court judge's overturning the conviction and ordering a new trial. Hughes then invited Mr. Hincapie to tell his compelling story, along with others involved in getting him a second trial and release, after 25 years in jail.

*Professor Hughes is a frequent contributor to important news outlets such as "The New York Times" and magazines such as "City Limits."
