A verdict has been reached in the case of Amber Guyger a former Dallas police officer who shot an unarmed man named Botham Jean to death in his home after allegedly mistaking it for her own apartment.

Guyger has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for the murder of Jean and has expressed remorse, saying she hates herself  “every single day” and wishes that Jean had killed her instead of the other way around, according to BuzzFeed.

In a remarkable scene, the victim’s brother Brandt Jean made an emotional speech, saying he forgave his brother’s killer, and even hugging Guyger in the courtroom.

Among his remarks Jean said:

“If you truly are sorry—I know I can speak for myself—I forgive you.”

Jean said he was speaking only for himself adding:

“I love you just like anyone else. I’m not going to say I hope you rot and die just like my brother did but I personally want the best for you and I wasn’t going to ever say this in front of my family or anyone but I don’t even want you to go to jail. I want the best for you because I know that’s exactly what Botham would want you to do. And the best would be: give your life to Christ.”

Jean added:

“I love you as a person and I don’t wish anything bad on you.”

He then asked the judge if he could hug Guyger before walking over to embrace her as she cried in his arms.

Following Jeans action the judge in the case, Tammy Kemp,  also hugged Guyger and gave her a Bible.

According to BuzzFeed, Jeans mother, Allison Jean, said after the ruling:

“Ten years in prison is 10 years for her reflection and for her to change her life, but there is much more to be done by the city of Dallas.”

Jean cited problems including poor police training as a cause in her son’s death, saying:

“If Amber Guyger was trained not to shoot in the heart, my son would be standing here today. He was no threat to her; he had no reason to pose a threat to her, because he was in his own apartment in his sanctuary.”
