When WMC Action News 5’s Kontji Anthony asked Brown what the last word he would like to say to Memphis before he serves his sentence, he responded, “Black lives matter.”
Joe Brown also issued the following statement:
“I will not apologize for vigorously defending my client and demanding that the court follow the law. What I saw was a miscarriage of justice and I did what needed to be done.
I will serve the time and I will continue stand up and speak out for justice as I have done throughout my 40-year legal career.
When our courts don’t follow the rule of law, justice is in jeopardy for everyone. Thank you to all of my supporters. Your prayers and well wishes are appreciated.”
