Woman convicted of mother’s murder to get new trial

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A woman convicted in 2009 of second-degree murder will get a new trial.

Noura Jackson is accused of stabbing her mother, Jennifer Jackson, at least 50 times in 2005.

The new trial was granted based on constitutional errors during the original trial.

The state Supreme Court said the lead prosecutor violated Jackson’s right to due process by not turning over a key witness’s statement to the defense.

The court also ruled the prosecutor’s comments on Jackson exercising her right to remain silent and not testify were impermissible.

        Actually that’s not true. She was NOT covered in any blood. I read the court transcripts and all the statements from this case yesterday – google Noura Jackson vs. state of tn, all the legal documents, witness statements, evidence, police reports, emergency crew statements, Noura’s statements, the whole ball of wax is right there.
        She was convicted on circumstancial evidence.
        The reason she is granted a new trail is because one of Noura’s friends made a THIRD statment that was not turned over to the defense until after the conviction. Supposedly this third statement, even though it’s in the documents listed above, wasn’t turned over until it was over, doesn’t have any new evidence other than the fact Noura is blaming this friend of her that made that third statement – he said in this statement that he doesn’t remember where he was that night. Noura is grasping – I think she did it and doesn’t want to pay the price. She was a spoiled brat that at the age of 18 still was in highschool with no intention of graduating and living off her mother for the rest of her life. She was a party girl, stayed up all hours of the night, drank and did drups, failed her classes in school, went to something like 4 or 5 different school in her High School years (which only has 4 YEARS). That’s not to say she killed her mother, but, usually when a victim’s face is covered after the crime, and the stab wounds were mainly in the face and head area, with some defensive wounds in the arms and hands – it is done by a close family member. Noura wants out of prison and is pointing her finger at a friend that whe used to party with.

    The lead prosecutor in this case is none other than our holster-sniffing DA, Amy Weirich.

    She violated the Defendant’s rights in her closing arguments, and she also violated her rights by concealing exculpatory evidence from the defense.

    This is Amy the THUG prosecutor in action. I hope she at least gets disciplined like her mentor, Tom Henderson was.

    I would like the trial judge to hold her in CONTEMPT and throw her butt in jail for 30 days. Henderson, too.

    This is gonna cost the taxpayers a fortune — because AMY WENT RAMBO.

      This was just the latest in a long line of episodes of prosecutorial misconduct at the hands of Ms. Weirich. It’s too bad the media didn’t do a better job of informing the public about that in advance of the election.

        There ARE some ethical and dedicated — and talented — prosecutors working at 201.

        Unfortunately, the ones who rise to the top are unethical Tom Henderson’s unethical little apprentices.

        Many prosecutors are downright DISGUSTED with both Henderson and Weirich now. It isn’t gonna get any better until those two are forced out.

      Not true, Druid, read the legal documents. The closing statement WAS not the reason she was granted a new trial The closing statement by Ms. Weirich was deemed okay by the judge at the time – it’s there in black and whte in Noura Jackson vs. The State of TN..

    Ms. Crocket/Channel 3:
    Racist and obviously hateful speech is not protected by the first amendment. Even if a poster uses an alphabet soup of letters to hideout the content of their messages in their name.. This person who uses this method is a throwback with no useful input into the conversation.
