An extraordinary moment in court today as former Dallas police officer Amber Guyger was sentenced to 1o years for killing Botham Jean. The murder conviction carried a possible life sentence, but testimony from Brant Jean, the victim’s younger brother may have helped Guyger. The Dallas News reports:

After a day of testimony focused on how long Guyger would spend in prison — the prosecution had asked for 28 years — Jean’s teenage brother said in his victim-impact statement that he wished she didn’t have to serve any time at all.

Instead, he said, he wanted for Guyger what his older brother would have wanted.

Jean said: “I think giving your life to Christ would be the best thing that Botham would want for you. I love you as a person, and I don’t wish anything bad on you.” He then asked the judge, “Can I give her a hug, please?”
