The trial of Memphis lawyer Arthur Horne is underway in Shelby County, with his accuser testifying this week, The Commercial Appeal reports. Because Horne practices in Shelby County, prosecutors were brought in from the Davidson County district attorney’s office and Special Judge Bill Acree, from Union City, was brought in to preside. The victim testified that she was attacked and stripped by Horne, with whom she shared a “tumultuous” relationship, and after she attempted to flee, she was dragged back and raped. Her flight was caught on camera, but the return was not.
