AUSTIN (KXAN) — Each week the in-depth reporting from the KXAN Investigates team will get a spotlight on KXAN Live.

A conversation will happen Tuesday morning with investigative reporter Kelly Wiley and KXAN Live anchor Will DuPree to break down one of this week’s top stories. Note: These conversations typically happen on Wednesday morning, but the schedule was changed this week due to the Thanksgiving holiday.

The discussion will include investigative reporter Avery Travis as well as investigative producer Dalton Huey. People can watch a live conversation of their conversation starting at about 9 a.m. in this story and on the KXAN News Facebook page.

The story they’ll discuss this week is:

  • The Travis County district attorney publicized a sharp increase in the conviction rate for violent, sexual and weapons-related offenses, but KXAN investigators found the formula used to calculate these statistics left some experts with questions. After KXAN’s reporting, the district attorney said his office is re-evaluating the method and trying to find the best way to present its data.
