Jessica Priest | Courts Reporter

Contact Jessica
Call: 361-580-6521

I am the courts reporter and watchdog columnist.

I began working for the Victoria Advocate in August 2012.

Before making my way to the Crossroads, I was an intern at the Houston Chronicle and worked as the Temple Daily Telegram's city government reporter.

I graduated with a bachelors degree in Mass Communication with an emphasis in print journalism from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville in 2011.

I will be responding to breaking news, keeping my eye on the court docket and whittling through data to better understand the lives of our readers and the issues that affect them. I also investigate possible scams our readers report. Have a problem? Just want to chat? Send me an email
