Former TV judge Brown stumbles in Tenn. DA bid
By The Associated Press
MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Former TV judge Joe Brown has lost his bid to become the district attorney for the Tennessee county that includes Memphis.
Brown, a Democrat, challenged Republican Amy Weirich, the incumbent district attorney for Shelby County. She claimed victory late Thursday.
With 96 per cent of precincts reporting, Weirich had 65 per cent of the vote compared with 35 per cent for Brown.
Brown was a Criminal Court judge in Memphis before stepping down in 2000 to dedicate himself to the TV show. The show is no longer on the air.
He was arrested and briefly jailed in March after a Shelby County Juvenile Court magistrate found him in contempt of court during a contentious hearing. He is appealing the charges.
