Applause for the intent but young women will not benefit from an abstinence program; they'll get pregnant. Read the statistics. Learn the lesson. Young women need access to contraception; not arcane lectures on how god wants them chaste.

Pop:

State v. Odom, 137 S.W.3d 572, 584 (Tenn. 2004) (Weirich’s misconduct to enhance her case and her reliance on these matters in closing prejudiced defendant. Reversed.)

State v. Sanlin, 2005 WL 1105227 (Tenn. Crim. App. May 6, 2005) (Weirich's misconduct created adverse inferences to enhance her case, she made improper comments in closing, unfairly prejudiced defendant, violated the 6th Amendment. Reversed.)

State v. Bond, 2006 WL 2689688 (Tenn. Crim. App. Sept. 20, 2006) (Weirich’s remarks were "improper ... the comments should not have been made".)

State v. Talley, 2006 WL 2947435 (Tenn. Crim. App. October 16, 2006) (Weirich’s comments were improper, designed to inflame the passions and prejudices of the jury in "clear disregard for long standing precedent.")

State v. Thomas, 158 S.W.3d 361 (Tenn. 2005) (Weirich's use of epithets "greed and evil" to characterize the defendants was unseemly and improper.)

State v. Culbreath, 30 S.W.3d 309 (Tenn. 2000) (Conflict of interest and resulting misconduct permeated the entire prosecution of the case, rendered the proceedings inherently improper and, as a whole, fundamentally unfair such that dismissal of the indictments was the appropriate remedy to redress the constitutional error.)

Re: “Matchups and Mix-ups

There are more Court of Criminal Appeals rulings finding that Weirich has committed prosecutorial misconduct than any other prosecutor in the State of Tennessee.
