Mediation in Pierce case to be discussed on WSUI's 'Iowa Talks'

Des Moines attorney Roxanne Conlin, the mediator in the high-profile sexual assault case involving University of Iowa basketball player Pierre Pierce, talks about the role of mediation in the case on an upcoming edition of WSUI's Iowa Talks program.

The program will air 10 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 9 on the University of Iowa's public radio station, WSUI AM 910.

Julie Englander hosts the discussion between Roxanne Conlin and Clara Oleson, program consultant at the University of Iowa, as they talk about the use of mediation in cases that are normally tried in a court of law, and what the ramifications of using mediation may mean for other victims of rape and sexual assault.

Listeners can call in with questions at 466-9100 in Johnson County, or 1-866-780-9100 from anywhere in Iowa or Illinois.
