The Freedom of Religion Foundation has filed a complaint with the State Commission on Judicial Conduct regarding the actions of Judge Tammy Kemp in the Amber Guyger murder trial.

After Guyger was sentenced to 10 years in prison for the murder of Botham Jean, the judge hugged her, gave her a bible and prayed with her.

The organization filing the complaint says it goal is to protect the Constitutional principals of the separation of church and state.

The complaint states:

We write to raise your awareness of Judge Kemp’s actions at the
close of the trial — during which she gifted a Christian bible,
instructing the convicted criminal on how to read the bible and which
passages to pay attention to, and witnessing to that convicted murderer.
These proselytizing actions overstepped judicial authority, were
inappropriate and were unconstitutional.

Courtroom video shows that after the sentencing and the victim impact statement, Judge Kemp left the courtroom, then returned holding her personal bible. She walked over to Amber Guyger at the defense table and proceeded to preach.
