    ‘I Forgive You’: Botham Jean’s Brother Gives Amber Guyger Hug After Sentencing I5Bn3

    From CBS Dallas/Fort Worth

    Raegan Scharfetter of CBS DFW wrote:


    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) — After a jury sentenced former Dallas Police Officer Amber Guyger to 10 years in prison for the murder of Botham Jean, his brother gave her a hug after giving a statement Wednesday.

    Protests broke out throughout the Dallas courthouse after the sentence was given, with people chanting, “No justice, no peace,” in support of Jean’s family. Prosecutors asked the jury to give a 28-year sentence since Jean would’ve turned 28-years-old earlier this month.

    But Brandt Jean, 18, said in his victim impact statement that he loves and has forgiven the now convicted murderer for shooting and killing his brother last September.



    “I love you just like anyone else,” Brandt said. “I’m not going to say I hope you rot and die… I personally want the best for you and I wasn’t going to ever say this in front of my family or anyone but I don’t even want you to go to jail. I want the best for you because I know that’s exactly what Botham would want you to do — and the best would be to give your life to Christ.”

    After wrapping up his statement, Brandt asked Judge Tammy Kemp if he could give Guyger a hug.

    “I don’t know if this is possible, but can I give her a hug?” he asked. “Please… Please?”

    Shortly after, he and Guyger embraced each other for nearly a minute before both returned to their seats.

    According to CBS 11’s Steve Pickett, the tenor and tone outside of the courtroom changed considerably as people watched what Brandt said and did.

    Pickett said individuals reacting outside the courtroom, showing passion and anger, appeared to honor and respect the voice of Jean’s younger brother.

    In regard to the hug shared between the two, Dallas County District Attorney John Creuzot said he hopes the community can learn from the compassion Jean’s brother showed in that moment.

    “To think if I’ve ever seen anything like that… I don’t think I have,” Creuzot said. “I think that young man was speaking from his heart. It certainly brought tears to a lot of peoples’ eyes in my office as we were watching it and I know it did down here in the courtroom. I think that’s an amazing act of healing and forgiveness that is rare in today’s society. That young man is 18 and he is a leader… He should guide us in leading.”

    Jean’s mother, Allison, has since made a statement after the trial’s emotional end.

    I know that there are many people who stood with me and my family throughout this tumultuous journey. Yesterday, we saw the conviction of Amber Guyger and today we heard the sentence of 10 years of prison. That 10 years in prison is 10 years for her reflection and for her to change her life. But there is much more to be done by the city of Dallas. The corruption that we saw during this process must stop and it must stop for you, because after now, I leave Dallas but you live in Dallas, and it must stop for everyone. The contamination of a crime scene that we saw coming out of this case, is one that should never happen again. The poor training or the poor use of what should’ve been training, is what we see coming out of this case. That should never ever happen again.

    If Amber Guyger was trained not to shoot in the heart, my son would be standing here today. My son was not a threat to her, he had no reason to pose a threat to her because he was in his own apartment, in his sanctuary. In the place of which he paid a lot of money to be in. He had every right to be there.

    Our lives must move on, but our lives must move on with change.




    Guyger was convicted for the murder of Jean Tuesday and faced a five-to-99 year sentence.

    This tragic story does show that there's power in forgiveness. You see it here in this story about Botham Jean's brother asking the judge to hug Amber Guyger. You don't get this normally after a murder conviction. Normally, the family of the victim would want the convicted defendant to rot. In this aftermath, despite outside protests, there lies forgiveness and (as you will see in the next article) compassion.

    Just Saying.
