Amy Weirich, DA, Shelby County, Tennessee: Drop the Charges! No Fourth Trial for Tim McKinney!


Tim McKinney was convicted and sentenced to death in 1999, in a proceeding that a Tennessee judge would later decry as “fundamentally unfair.” The trial was flawed from start to finish. Tim's conviction was overturned on appeal but he has been retried twice in Shelby County, despite strong evidence of his innocence and despite the huge taxpayer expense of mounting a capital trial. Both have ended in hung juries. Enough is enough: there is too much doubt in Timothy McKinney’s case. Join us in telling District Attorney General Amy Weirich: Drop the charges, no fourth trial!
