A U.S. District Judge rejected Michael Slager’s request, saying that the ex-officer’s actions, not his legal team, garnered the sentence.
A judge ruled that Dallas can't be liable as part of a civil suit filed over former police officer Amber Guyger killing Botham Jean in his own apartment last year. That means the Dallas Police Department also can't be held liable.
The mothers of Botham Jean and Atatiana Jefferson shared Christmas messages in the weeks after their children's killers were sentenced to prison and arrested for murder, respectively.
