This is the picture of Botham Jean’s mother — Allison Jean — at the funeral for her son who was fatally shot by the Dallas Officer Amber Guyger. A lot of people wondered what the outcome would be considering the details. Turns out Amber has been fired. Remember the story was that she fatally shot the 26 year old in his OWN apartment after mistaking the apartment for her own and him for an intruder.
Amber Guyger, the police officer charged with manslaughter in the shooting of a man inside his Dallas apartment, has been fired from the department, according to a statement Dallas Police Chief Ulysha Renee Hall.
Guyger was fired during a hearing Monday, Hall said. Jean’s mother, Allison, learned of Guyger’s termination during a Sunday evening conference call with Hall, family attorney S. Lee Merritt said Monday.
“She also offered an explanation of why it took so long, explaining that she had to consider Ms. Guyger’s Fifth Amendment protections specifically so that her termination action wouldn’t compromise the criminal matter and lead to, really, the criminal allegations being thrown out altogether,” he told CNN.
The Fifth Amendment prohibits self-incrimination and double jeopardy, and guarantees due process for those accused of crimes.
