Amber Guyger’s Attorney Calls Indictment ‘Vindictive Emotion’

Botham Jean Amber Guyger

While Guyger has changed details of the shooting over time, she now claims that she returned home from a shift, mistook Jean's apartment for her own (it was located directly above her own), somehow gained access to the apartment and then shot Jean, fearing he was burglar. She says a murder charge is intentionally and knowingly killing a person, while a manslaughter offence is recklessly killing a person.

"We are elated that we've made this step but we are focused on seeing this case through".

Speaking at a news conference Friday, Allison Jean said she believed Guyger "inflicted tremendous evil on my son".

Botham Jean leads a worship at a Harding University presidential reception in Dallas, Sept. 21, 2017.

Court records were posted Friday before Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson held a press conference announcing the decision of a grand jury on the fate of Amber Guyger.

Johnson said that there's equal justice in Dallas County for everyone.

Lee Merritt, an attorney for the Jean family, has said the document is an attempt to "condone what happened, give her a break".

Johnson estimated it would be more than a year before the Guyger case heads to trial.

The Duke of Sussex reportedly felt that his big bro "wasn't rolling out the red carpet" for his soon-to-be wife. Following the announcement, sources insisted there was no acrimony between the Cambridges and the Sussexes .

An attorney for Jean's family accused investigators of slow walking an arrest. They called anything less than a murder indictment unacceptable and were happy at the result.

"This is groundbreaking, but it is also just a start", family members told reporters, explaining that a grand jury indictment "doesn't mean the case itself will be a slam dunk".

Merritt said he and the other attorneys "believe the facts are consistent with murder". "I feel for Botham Jean's family, and I can't imagine the pain they are going through".

Allison Jean also said that the unusually long grand jury process was nerve-wracking but she found comfort in the thorough presentation by the DA's office. It's an indictment.it doesn't mean anything. "We are confident that a dispassionate jury in a fair forum will find Amber not guilty". She said she wanted to make sure the jury had everything they needed to "make the right choice". He didn't deserve it, he was seated in his own apartment, he felt safe in that apartment, and he was violated by her coming in and murdering him.

Jean was a native of the Caribbean island nation of St. Lucia.

"Every person in the Dallas Police Department continues to feel anguish about this hard and tragic event that occurred on September 6, 2018", Hall said. The chief outlined some of her policy changes. Guyger was arrested September 9 on suspicion on manslaughter, and was released from the Kaufman County Jail after posting a $300,000 bond.

Guyger was at first placed on administrative leave after shooting Jean, but fired days later, with the Dallas police chief citing in a tweet that Guyger was "terminated for her actions".
