Former Dallas Officer Who Shot an Unarmed Man, Charged With Murder
03 December, 2018, 01:01 | Author: Orlando Hughes
Guyger, who was a Dallas police officer at the time of the shooting, was arrested and charged with manslaughter three days after she shot and killed unarmed Botham Jean in his apartment.
The $300,000 bond she posted after being arrested on manslaughter charges in September in the death of Botham Jean was transferred to her new case, Johnson said, allowing Guyger to remain free on bail. She gave "verbal commands that were ignored", and then fatally shot the man.
"I am indeed satisfied with the indictment for murder of Amber Guyger because I truly believe that she inflicted tremendous evil on my son". She was sacked from the Dallas Police Department on September 24.
Botham Jean, a native of the Caribbean island nation of St. Lucia, graduated in accounting and management information systems at Harding University's Arkansas campus in 2016, and had been interning at PricewaterhouseCoopers when killed.
After a brief internship and graduation from college, he accepted a permanent job in the Dallas office of auditing firm, Price Waterhouse Coopers in 2015.
We hope Botham Jean gets justice. A judge on Friday ordered Guyger to surrender her passport and barred her from leaving the state without permission. The lawsuit said Guyger did not give emergency aid to Jean following the gunfire. Guyger claimed she mistook Jean, an accountant, for an intruder in her apartment but realized she had opened fire inside his unit in the same building.
Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson said "we presented the evidence and we explained the law" to the grand jury, explaining why the charge was elevated to murder.

The charges were handed down by a grand jury on Friday, almost three months after Amber Guyger was arrested on manslaughter charges for the shooting of Botham Jean, 26.
The Washington Post reported that according to the Texas Code, a person has committed murder if he or she intentionally or knowingly caused the death of another person or meant to injure someone while committing a unsafe act.
The grand jury had the option of indicting Guyger on the original manslaughter count carrying up to 20 years in prison, or not indicting her at all, but in the end, they chose to indict her on the upgraded murder charge. She had already been arrested again and released on bond, Johnson said at the news conference.
