Twenty-first Judicial District Attorney Kim Helper will discuss legislation known as the “victim photo life bill” at the Williamson County Republican Career Woman’s Club meeting on Thursday, the Brentwood Home Page reports. The bill, HB1342, sponsored by Rep. Terri Lynn Weaver, R-Lancaster, would allow a photo of a dead victim while still living to be shown during a trial. Victim photos are not currently shown during trial because the Tennessee Supreme Court ruled such photos could potentially influence a jury. The group meets at 7 p.m. at the Brentwood Pointe II clubhouse.
