The Board of Professional Responsibility will not move forward with charges against Shelby County District Attorney Amy Weirich related to the Noura Jackson case, News Channel 3 in Memphis reports. During a press conference Monday afternoon, Weirich says the board agreed to privately reprimand her for any wrongdoing and stop any further proceedings in the case. Weirich admitted that she made errors while she was the lead prosecutor on the Noura Jackson case. The BPR found she failed to exercise due diligence, to the detriment of others involved in the trial, and it determined she committed violations of diligence, fairness to opposing party and counsel, and misconduct under the Rules of Professional Conduct.
