The decision was made this past Thursday, and a panel of three state judges ruled a Dallas County jury had sufficient evidence to convict Guyger of murder.
As of now, Guyger will continue to serve a 10-year-sentence and will not be eligible for parole until 2024. The woman’s appeal found her saying she mistook Jean’s home for her own and that the shooting that followed was reasonable. Guyger’s lawyer reportedly requested a criminally negligent homicide conviction, which would hold a lower prison term.
