One embrace grew into a moving show of faith, forgiveness, and hope, moments after a guilty sentence was handed down in a murder case.

Botham Jean was a preacher, teacher, and singer, who was killed by an ex-Dallas police officer. Amber Guyger testified that she mistakenly walked into the wrong apartment at the end of her shift and shot Jean thinking he was a burglar.

Brandt Jean, the younger brother of Botham Jean, gave a candid and loving victim impact statement to the courtroom and had one request. He asked the judge if he could give Guyger a hug.

Witnesses described the courtroom as shocked and security on edge by the request. They waited on Judge Tammy Kemp to make her decision. 

"This is your job while you're in custody, it will strengthen you."

Once permission was granted, it is recorded that Guyger raced to him, and they embraced.

In a video following the trial, Jason Trahan, a Dallas court reporter says he has "never seen anything like that."

Following the embrace, the judge went off her bench and approached Guyger. Kemp also embraced her and whispered in her ear before leaving the courtroom in a troubled look, only to return with a book in her hand. 

It was a Bible. 

According to Trahan, she said, "You can have mine, I have three or four of at home, I want you to have this." Judge Kemp mentioned John 3:16 saying, "This is your job while you're in custody, it will strengthen you." Guyger nodded her head and hugged the Judge. She whispered something else in Judge Kemp's ear. 

Trahan says Judge Kemp replied with, "It's not me that's good, it's because I'm a believer in Christ. I'm not so good, and you haven't done as much as you think you have. You can be forgiven."

The judge continued, "You did something bad in one moment in time. What you do now, matters. You take that with you," Kemp said as she gave Guyger the Bible.

Guyger has been sentenced to 10 years in prison and is said to be unable to forgive herself for what happened the night of the shooting.
