Civil rights attorneys Ben Crump and Antonio Romanucci issued the following statement related to the pursuit of justice for Botham Jean
“We are pleased to see the arc of justice continue to bend toward accountability for the murder of Botham Jean in Dallas. The 3-justice panel made the right call this week to uphold the murder conviction of former Dallas officer Amber Guyger, who shot and killed Mr. Jean for absolutely no reason as he ate ice cream in his apartment. We look forward to the Texas law in his name going into effect on September 1, making it illegal for any peace officer to turn off their body camera during an investigation, as happened in this case. May more commonsense police reform sweep our nation to restore trust of law enforcement in our marginalized communities.”
