Hi, my name is: Ron Mott
I’ve been a Dateline correspondent for: I'm a newbie. Started my first assignment in Fall 2011.
My inspiration(s) in telling this story: Digging into what was dubbed 'The Shame of Lorain' to see what really happened. Or didn't happen.
The most memorable words I heard: Nancy Smith telling me she'd rather stay in jail than admit to a horrendous crime she says she did not commit, even after nearly 15 years behind bars.
What still surprises me about this story: That it is still unresolved after all this time.
Last but not least, in general, I wish: Viewers will take calls to jury service with the utmost diligence, care and concern for justice as they would want and should expect from their peers when entrusted to sit in judgment of them.
How do you Dateline?: I usually Dateline with my feet propped, a beverage in one hand, iPad in the other, and glued to yet another dramatic story.
