    I'm thinking they will get some additional instructions regarding that. But no specifics as to time maybe?

    I wish I was more familiar with TX law.

    But they will consider a lot of different factors. Aggravators and mitigators.

    Don’t police there take some kind of test to see if they should be LE such as MMPI?

    You know what's coming from prosecutors....

    Question: Was she going to take you on the cruise she had planned?

    ETA: Nvm. Smart call not to cross exam!

    Sexual abuse is horrible, BUT it does not justify ending the life of an innocent man.

    No walk down the hallway for Amber Guyger this morning. Instead the defense is bringing in clothes for her to change into after a night in jail. #GuygerTrial #cbsdfw

    A Jean family supporter brought bags of snacks for the family. I also saw two small bottles of champagne. #GuygerTrial #cbsdfw

    If I were on the jury these would be my thoughts:

    10 years for failing to render any aid - absolutely no excuse for that; especially after her training.

    5 years for texting her lover instead of rendering aid as well as having nothing better to do 2 days after the murder than to text her lover to go out drinking - shows how much she cared about his life and family grieving, IMO.

    15 years for the murder of Botham.

    Maybe 2 years for the social media/texting nonsense.

    So 32 years, very little of that due to her texts and social media.

    I recall hearing about this incident when it first happened and could not reconcile how on earth this young woman did not realize that she was at the wrong apartment. As LE, wasn't she trained to be alert to her surroundings? How could she not know that she wasn't standing in front of HER apartment? I figured she must have been drinking and/or drugging and wasn't fully aware of where she was or what she was doing.

    Of course and that's why she murdered Botham.

    Being sexually molested did not make her kill that man that day! Come on. It's wholly irrelevant to what she did and is only being brought up for sympathy points.

    I’m sure it wasn’t brought up during trial—it’d have had no relevance then.

    I agree it didn’t make her kill the man but it’s not totally irrelevant. All experiences make us the people we are

    State's first witness today is a friend from college. Says "People gravitated toward him." "You just felt welcomed by his presence."


    LaVendrick Smith‏Verified account @LaVendrickS 1h1 hour ago
    The friend, Alexis Stossel, talking about Botham Jean's college activities. Says he helped rally the student body to be involved in the community.


    LaVendrick Smith‏Verified account @LaVendrickS 1h1 hour ago
    Jury seeing multiple photos of Stossel and Botham. They went to church together in Dallas and he emceed her wedding.


    LaVendrick Smith‏Verified account @LaVendrickS 1h1 hour ago
    Stossel: "We talked almost every day. If it wasn't a phone call, it was a text message."


    LaVendrick Smith‏Verified account @LaVendrickS 59m59 minutes ago
    Jury looking at a supportive text message Botham sent Stossel while she was making a life-changing decision to move to East Texas. "This could be the best decision of your life. You'll never know if you never attempt it," part of the message says.


    LaVendrick Smith‏Verified account @LaVendrickS 56m56 minutes ago
    Stossel says the last time she spoke with Botham was the day of the shooting. He sent her a photo of herself that he turned into a meme. Says Stossel: "I have never lost someone as close to my life, and the feeling is just unexplainable."

    So very True. Some of us experience a horrible childhood and even young adulthood, and we don't go down the wrong path, or kill someone. Every choice has a consequence. Sometimes you get caught, sometimes you don't. The choices you make in life determine your fate.

    I’m baffled how one decides that irrefutable evidence of ones character (Or lack there of) is wrong? These posts are definitive evidence of who she IS. She was proud to pin them.

    The other side of the coin: if her Pinterest board had been full of positive inclusive posts, these would be used to help exonerate her. And that’s on her
