Trouble with wiring switch

I've been replacing old discolored outlets with ones and haven't had any problems until now. Now two of the outlets aren't getting any juice. They're the last two in a run and I'm thinking the switch before them is incorrectly wired. I thought I'd wired it just like it was when I took it out but could be wrong.

The switch controls an overhead light in a bedroom. Anyway, the switch has two brass screws and there's a black wire to one of them and a black and a white to the other pole. Does this sound right? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
