Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich and Assistant District Attorney Stephen P. Jones say they will fight disciplinary charges from the state Supreme Court’s Board of Professional Responsibility in separate hearings that will include witness testimony, evidence and attorneys. The hearings will not be open to the public. The pair is accused of breaking ethics rules in the 2009 murder trial of Noura Jackson. The Memphis Flyer reports that taking their cases to trial could result in harsher punishments.
