BREAKING: A jury in Dallas has reached a decision in the Amber Guyger trial. They found the 31 year old guilty of murdering Botham Jean. dfw.cbslocal.com/2019/10/01/dal…
The jury could have convicted Amber Guyger of murder, manslaughter or acquitted her. She now faces between 5 and 99 years in prison and will be sentenced later today. Botham Jean’s attorneys said the jury sent questions about the Castle Doctrine measure while deliberating.
According to some legal experts, the judge may have been appeal-proofing the the Amber Guyger trial outcome by including Castle Doctrine and “mistake of fact.” An appeals court may have more easily overturned the conviction if jurors weren’t allowed to consider both. #BothemJean
But here’s the bottom line: Castle Doctrine measures and Stand Your Ground laws pushed by the @NRA are racist. We must stop them and roll them back. This year in Arkansas, @MomsDemand volunteers stopped SYG twice despite a Republican supermajority. Join us: Text READY to 644-33.
