Scott Colom Praised for Criminal Justice Reform Efforts

Former Fellow Scott Colom (’09) was profiled in New York Magazine, which lauded his progressive approach to criminal justice reform as a Mississippi district attorney (“What if Prosecutors Wanted to Keep People Out of Prison?” March 2018). “What animates [Scott] most about his job is brainstorming ways to reform the judicial system that has built up to accommodate the (largely futile) drug war,” the story said.
