Experts disagree on whether Dallas officer could be credible

Guyger told investigators that she had just ended a 15-hour shift Thursday when she returned in uniform to the South Side Flats apartment complex.

A family attorney, Lee Merritt, said a police search warrant request that asked permission to search Jean's apartment for drugs showed that investigators were looking for information that would "assassinate" Botham Jean's character. Give me justice for my son because he does not deserve what he got, ' Allison Jean said in comments reported by CNN.

Police then gained a search warrant for the home and found 10.4 grams of marijuana, according to an affidavit. Guyger has since been placed on administrative leave and charged with manslaughter; Jean died at a local hospital. Jean was Guyger's neighbor, and she accidentally entered his apartment instead of her own. She saw a figure in the dark and fired her weapon after Jean did not obey her verbal commands. Secondly, there is no indication that a similar warrant was issued for Guyger since she lived in the apartment below Jean.

His family said they were "assassinating his character".

'To have my son smeared in such a way, I think shows that there (are people) who are really nasty, who are really dirty and are going to cover up for the devil Amber Guyger, ' she said.


"Law enforcement has no place for fearful officers", said Jameca Woody Falconer, a police psychologist based in St. Louis. "In this situation, the officer allowed her fear to influence her decision-making and it cost an innocent man his life". I want to find out whether her apartment has been searched, whether her auto has been searched, and also on the Saturday when we spoke to the Texas Ranger he was saying that there was no reason in his mind that she ought to have been locked up. She says it wasn't until she turned the lights on that she realized she was in the wrong apt.

Jean was being presented to the public as a university graduate on the partnership track at a prestigious firm who sang in the choir, Merritt said.

Lawyers on Friday also accused Dallas police of "preferential treatment" toward Guyger and alleged officers were leaking information to the media.

"I'm confident this district attorney's office is taking this case seriously", he said.

Hall is within her rights immediately terminate Guyger, but sources told ABC News that it would be rare to do so before the internal police report is complete.
