She texted breaking updates to an editor while teenagers ducked under church pews after hearing gunfire, interviewed a state legislator as he reached into heifers for pregnancy tests, and revealed that executive members of the Houston mayor’s staff used city funds to pay the bills of a nonprofit that later filed for bankruptcy.

Rep. Krayton Kerns, R-Laurel, (center) drove home from the Montana capitol one weekend in the 2011 legislative session to help a friend pregnancy test his cattle the old-fashioned, cheap way: by reaching into the rectum and feeling below for the uterus. Here, they brand a heifer whose mark had faded.

In December 2017, Jayme was selected for the inaugural ProPublica Local Reporting Network and will spend 2018 working on an investigative project for the Malheur Enterprise in eastern Oregon.

Before that, she was a state government, special projects and education reporter for Lee Newspapers of Montana.

In the fall of 2017, she co-taught an investigations class at the University of Montana School of Journalism with Professor Joe Eaton. It was a first-time collaboration with a professional partner, the Missoulian. They mentored undergraduate and graduate students as they analyzed why Montana has one of the highest rates of drug-exposed births and how the state failed by several measures to help pregnant women who used drugs.

In 2015, she was named an KESS InHouse Li Zamperini Florsle Pink Green Dog Bed, 30 x 40 as part of a Houston Chronicle team that investigated the jail suicide of Sandra Bland after a questionable traffic stop.

KESS InHouse Li Zamperini Organic bluee Multicolor Watercolor Pet Bowl, 7 Diameter that was named a national runner-up examined the questionable science and poor defense in a local “shaken baby” conviction.

Wilkes was freed in the summer of 2018, although prosecutors say they might seek a new trial.
