Roberto Hernandez and Layda Negrete

Grad students’ film ‘Presumed Guilty’ wins an Emmy for best investigative journalism

In light of the competition, Roberto Hernández didn’t expect to take home a trophy from September’s News & Documentary Emmy ceremony in New York.

But win he did — for outstanding investigative journalism — along with his wife and fellow UC Berkeley grad student, Layda Negrete, and fellow makers of Presumed Guilty (“Presunto Culpable”).
