Bethany Barnes

bethany_barnesBethany Barnes is a reporter at the Las Vegas Review-Journal where she covers the city of North Las Vegas while pursuing investigative projects. She’s written about a parole backlog that keeps prisoners the state has deemed worthy of release locked up — sometimes for years — because they’re too poor to afford a halfway house, a controversial practice of prosecutors paying for witnesses’ rent and a plagiarism scandal in the agency that oversees higher education in Nevada.
