Shelby County Assistant District Attorney Steve Jones was cleared of misconduct charges today after being accused of intentionally or knowingly failing to disclose evidence in a murder case until after the trial, the Commercial Appeal reports. The trial was that of Noura Jackson, whose second-degree murder conviction was thrown out after the state Supreme Court found that District Attorney General Amy Weirich made an improper comment on Jackson’s right to remain silent and the prosecution violated Jackson’s right to due process by failing to turn over an important witness statement until after the trial.
