DavidDavid McGlothlin is a University of Arizona School of Journalism senior and recipient of this year’s “With Conviction Fellowship.” Born and raised in Phoenix, he moved to Tucson in 2011 pursuing a degree and career in journalism. Since then he worked for various publications, which include the Tucson Weekly, Arizona Daily Star and Arizona Sonora News Service. He also worked at the Arizona Daily Wildcat — UA’s student run newspaper — as news editor and editor in chief. David was recently awarded the “Don Bolles Fellowship” where he will spend the upcoming spring semester in Phoenix covering the Legislature.

At the “Reporting Science in the Courtroom: With Conviction Workshop,” I worked as the social media and online editor for the workshop’s Facebook and Twitter accounts. During the daylong event, I updated both accounts with live updates, quotes, interviews, videos, and photos courtesy of Rebecca Noble, the photographer. The content combined photographs from Rebecca with quotes from the corresponding discussions. I also filmed, edited, and posted a series of one-on-one interviews with speakers, students, and visitors all from my iPhone onto the Facebook and Twitter accounts. My favorite video was my interview with special guest Ray Krone who spoke about his exoneration after ten years in prison, which has currently reached nearly 2,400 people’s timelines and counting. 

“The most interesting aspect of the workshop to me was seeing individuals who are typically on opposite sides in the courtroom unifying around the sense of ‘it’s time to get this right’ in order to start a well-rounded, objective dialogue about the issues regarding science in the courtroom.”
