Borchard Fellow Annie Manhardt Continues with Vermont Prisoners' Rights Office

After working exclusively with older adults under penal supervision in Vermont as a 2018-2019 Borchard Fellow, Annie Manhardt has been hired to stay on as a staff attorney at her host organization, the Prisoners' Rights Office. She handles cases addressing a wide range of issues involving the fact, length and conditions of confinement and community supervision for people serving sentences. This involves litigating post-conviction relief criminal appeals, defending clients against parole revocation, and representing clients in civil litigation related to prison healthcare, discipline, sentence calculation, and more. Although she now represents clients of all ages, Annie is excited to continue her advocacy regarding the unique issues faced by older adults in the criminal legal system.

Congratulations, Annie!
