Botham Jean

Amber Guyger shot Jean at his apartment at South Side Flats on September 6, 2018. Both individuals resided within the same structure. Guyger said that she erroneously believed she was in her own residence and perceived Jean as a trespasser when she discharged her weapon, resulting in his death. In 2019, she was found guilty of murder and received a 10-year prison sentence. In November of last year, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to review her case.

The family is currently engaged in a legal proceeding against both the city and Guyger. Although a specific court date has not yet been scheduled, the parties engaged in a legal dispute last month on pre-trial motions. These motions pertained to determining the qualifications of potential expert witnesses and deciding whose testimony or material should be removed from consideration.

Another lawsuit was launched against South Side Flats and its owner, Waterton Residential, claiming that Jean’s death was caused by inadequate design and signage, as well as defective door-locking mechanisms, The case was initially filed in federal court but was then transferred to Dallas County district court. It is scheduled to commence trial on October 17th.

However, all of this information may be found in news reports and legal records. Above all, Charles-Findley desires for the world to comprehend the profound loss it experienced when the bullet discharged from Guyger’s firearm altered her life and claimed her brother’s.

“The world has suffered the loss of an illuminating figure—a transformative individual.” “They have suffered the loss of a heroic figure,” she states. “He was my closest companion, but it was quite amusing—after his death and people were contacting me, nearly everyone claimed to be ‘Botham’s closest friend’.”

“He had numerous close companions as he had the ability to make everyone feel exceptional, as if they were the most outstanding individual.”

Charles-Findley expresses her difficulty in recovering her emotional balance following Jean’s death, which was exacerbated by the ongoing legal proceedings that continuously reopened her emotional wounds, However, recounting her narrative played a crucial role in reclaiming a certain degree of authority from the overwhelming sense of hopelessness she experienced.

In her latest publication, After Botham: Healing after My Brother’s Homicide by a Law Enforcement Officer, she recounts her own narrative. It was formally released yesterday.

“We are currently engaged in ongoing litigation against Dallas,” she states. “We are still far from completing the grieving process.” The need for closure is consistently deferred, resulting in frequent interruptions. I am required to undergo depositions, during which I must recount the most distressing period of my life in the presence of individuals whom I am aware are critically evaluating me, actively seeking any imperfections in my testimony. It is quite challenging.

Charles-Findley had a period of darkness in the years that followed her brother’s death. She ceased consuming food. She was furious with everyone, including God.
