In the summer of 2011, Houston was an intern for the Innocence Project of Florida (IPF), an organization that investigates meritorious innocence cases and secures DNA testing to advocate for the release of wrongfully incarcerated inmates. In addition, IPF provides transitional and aftercare services to exonorees and advocates for necessary criminal justice reform to avoid wrongful incarcerations in the future. “As a native Floridian, I have always been interested in Florida’s legal system, which is infamous for having some of the most problematic laws regarding prison sentences and compensation for exonorees. This internship allows me to promote social justice while learning how psychology interacts with the legal process,” she writes.
