Forrest Behne is a policy analyst at the Re-Envisioning Health and Justice Lab. In 2014, he earned a BS in Biology from Washington & Lee University and had spent six years in the beer industry as a brewer and microbiologist. He was incarcerated for nearly two years because of a little-understood medical condition. Since being released through clemency by Ohio’s governor, he is inspired to help those affected by the criminal justice system. His research interests now include criminal justice reform, penology, and the collateral consequences of incarceration.
