OFFICER KILLED NEIGHBOR APPEAL

OFFICER KILLED NEIGHBOR APPEAL

Amber Guyger’s defense team is appealing her conviction last year,

Claiming the charge should have been criminally negligent homicide instead of murder.

The lesser charge would possibly mean Guyger could be released on parole.

“I feel furious about it,” Botham Jean’s mother Allison said in an interview from her home in St. Lucia.

“It really made me question the nerve of Amber Guyger and her attorneys to even think of wanting to file an appeal.”

Guyger, a former Dallas police officer,

Was sentenced to 10 years in prison for shooting and killing Botham Jean inside his apartment in September 2018.

Guyger also lived in the same apartment complex, one floor directly below Jean,

and said she mistook him for an intruder when she entered his apartment instead of her own.

Jean’s mother said if the case is reconsidered, Guyger should get life in prison.

  1. Murder requires intent and planning. Where was that covered in the prosecution?

      Not all forms of murder require intent or planning. Laying in wait requires planing of some sort. In a manslaughter charge it is simply dying at the hands of another and no intent required, like a drunk driver, or a accident. Just negligence is required.
      I am not sure of what she was actually convicted of as I am not familiar with their penal code, and requirements.

watcha gotta say?
