  • Kate Martin is the lead investigative reporter for Carolina Public Press. Her work has led to the creation of four state laws and the resignation of several elected officials. Her deep analysis of years of North Carolina court records showed fewer than 1 in 4 people charged with sexual assault are ever convicted of that or a lesser related crime. @Katereports
