Ex-Cop Amber Guyger To Appeal Her Murder Conviction Next Week

Amber Guyger, the former police officer who murdered Botham Jean inside his apartment, is attempting to get her conviction overturned.

Guyger murdered Jean, a 26-year-old accountant, in cold blood as he sat in his apartment in September 2018. The former Dallas police officer argued that she mistakenly got off on the wrong floor in the apartment building. She claims that she entered Jean’s home by accident, thinking that it was her own, and believed that Jean was an intruder. In October 2019, Guyger was sentenced to ten years behind bars.

Guyger is expected to appeal the conviction before a panel of judges next week on the grounds that the murder was accidental. She is looking to be charged with the lesser offense of criminally negligent homicide.

Guyger’s lawyers stated in the appeal that the evidence was “legally insufficient to prove beyond reasonable doubt that Guyger committed murder.”

Allisa Findley, Jean’s sister, blasted Guyger for trying to get a lighter penalty. She believes that the woman does not believe that she did anything wrong on that fateful night and had already received a slap on the wrist for the crime.

“Jean was doing nothing wrong on the day he was murdered. Jean was sitting in his own apartment, minding his own business.”
