Industry Achiever: Andrew McLemore

Andrew McLemore’s three-part series for the Williamson County (Texas) Sun Until Proven Innocent” about Michael Morton, a man falsely imprisoned 25 years for the murder of his wife, was honored with the 2011 Livingston Award for local reporting.

According to the award announcement, the 25-year-old reporter retraced years of evidence, records, and interviews, and his reporting “showed the guilty verdict was accomplished when evidence gathered by the lead investigator was withheld by the prosecuting attorney’s office.”

McLemore said, “I wasn’t trying to prove Morton’s innocence — that was already clear — I was trying to show that the justice system had failed.”

McLemore is now a staff writer for the Fort Worth (Texas) Weekly.
