Judge Says Amber Guyger Trial Won’t Be Like TV Courtroom Dramas

Jury selection resumed Friday morning in the murder trial of fired Dallas police Officer Amber Guyger, with State District Judge Tammy Kemp telling potential jurors the trial won’t be like TV courtroom dramas, according to the Dallas Morning News.

“We are not at all like Perry Mason. We are not at all like Law & Order. Set aside your preconceived notions,” the publication quoted Kemp as saying.

She said that the goal is to find “fair and impartial” individuals, it was reported.

Amber Guyger shot and killed 26-year-old Saint Lucian national – Botham Jean in his own apartment last year.

She said she went to the wrong apartment thinking it was her own and mistook Jean for an intruder.

Testimony is expected to begin Sept. 23, and the trial could last two weeks.

The State District Judge hopes to select 12 jurors and four alternates by the end of the day Friday, from among hundreds of potential jurors.
