Statement from Sherra Wright's Legal Team

Sherra absolutely denies any involvement in Lorenzen Wright's death. She has no criminal history whatsoever, so jail is a new and frightening experience - as is the possibility of spending the rest of her life in custody. She misses her children and wishes that she could be with them. Sherra wants this case to be over but understands that it's a long and complicated pre-trial process.

Does your client, Sherra Wright, deny the claims made by Jimmie Martin that she, along with Jimmie Martin and Billy Ray Turner conspired to kill Lorenzen Wright?

She absolutely denies the claims that Jimmie Martin's made. It's important to remember that Jimmie was free on bail for a separate killing - for which he was later convicted - when Lorenzen was shot. Jimmie also has his own reasons for his "story."


What is Ms. Wright’s trial status?

The case is scheduled for a report date on October 5 in Division 7 of Shelby County Criminal Court.

What other charges has she received (if any) other than first-degree murder charges?

In addition to first-degree murder, Sherra's also indicted for conspiracy to commit first-degree murder.

Has Ms. Wright changed her plea of “not guilty”?

She has not changed her plea.

Will you ever feel comfortable in your own skin? That is, if you don't make an effort to protect it? Although 64% of adults do report wearing sunscreen when outside for prolonged periods of time, it turns out that only about 10% of people surveyed actually protect themselves daily, according to a recent review.

No matter what your skin tone is, unless you live in a cave with no sunlight, daily protection with either sunscreen, sunblock or protective clothing can not only protect you from developing sunburns (ouch!) but can significantly reduce your risk of developing skin cancer, particularly the deadliest type called melanoma. In addition, for those of you wanting to keep your youthful looks, daily sunscreen has been shown to reduce the development of wrinkles. A great teacher once told me that the best way to not have wrinkles is not to get them in the first place (think of how much money you can save on useless creams that claim to diminish wrinkles).
