Dallas County Jail

Former Dallas cop Amber Guyger was convicted of murder in the fatal shooting of her neighbor, Botham Jean, in his own home.

A new mugshot was taken when Guyger was booked into the Dallas County Jail on Tuesday, following her conviction.

She will be held in jail until her sentencing hearing. She will then be transported to prison. The former cop was not allowed to post bond while her attorneys appeal her conviction.

The sentencing phase of Guyger's murder trial began on Tuesday afternoon.

Jurors heard from Jean's still-grieving mother and sister, who talked about his good character, his strong religious upbringing, and his life of service to others.

Prosecutors showed jurors racist text messages and social media posts written by Guyger, 31.

One text message was in reference to the Jan. 15, 2018 Martin Luther King Jr. holiday parade in Dallas, according to ABC affiliate WFAA 8 News.

"When does this end lol," a fellow cop texted Guyger.

"When MLK is dead… oh wait…" she responded.

"Just push them… or spray your pepper spray in that general area," she wrote, referring to the majority Black crowd at the parade.

In another text exchange, dated Sept. 4, 2018, someone texted Guyger about adopting a German Shepherd.

"Although she may be racist," the dog’s owner messaged Guyger.

"It's okay.. I'm the same," Guyger responded.

The jury will take Guyger's racist texts into consideration when deciding her punishment. Jurors will consider whether her racism was a factor when she shot Jean in cold blood in his apartment on Sept. 6, 2018.

Guyger faces a maximum of 99 years behind bars.
