Even though the Botham Jean murder case may be over with the conviction of ex-policewoman Amber Guyger, but the controversy surrounding the case certainly is not over. Guyger short 10-year sentence, for breaking into an innocent, unarmed man's home killing him ran with the publicity at first, then the hugging of the now-convicted murderer. Judge Tammy Kemp has now had a complaint filed against her by ethics investigators, according to CNN.
As the trial came to an ending, Judge Kemp met the defendant at her table handing her a bible. "You can have mine. I have three or four more at home," witness claim was said before hugging her. "This is the one I use every day. This is your job for the next month. It says right here. John 3:16. And this is where you start. 'For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life...'"


While the exchange to some may be heartwarming, but to others very strange that a judge would step down from their seat to embrace a convicted murderer. The action caused outrage on social media, however, the Freedom From Religion Foundation took it a step further by issuing a formal complaint to the Texas State Commission on Judicial Conduct. Calling Kemp's action a crossing of the lines of the separation of church and state.
"We, too, believe our criminal justice system needs more compassion from judges and prosecutors," the complaint read, "But here, compassion crossed the line into coercion. And there can be few relationships more coercive than a sentencing judge in a criminal trial and a citizen accused and convicted of a crime." Judge Kemp has yet to comment on her actions in the courtroom.
