The former Minnesota police officer Kim Potter was just sentenced to two years for the killing of Daunte Wright.
A Minnesota jury found Kim Potter, 49, guilty late last year of first- and second-degree manslaughter in the April shooting in Brooklyn Center. The former police officer killed the 20-year-old during a traffic-stop-turned-arrest outside Minneapolis when she was believed to have pulled out a taser instead of her gun.
The ex-cop received a sentence of 24 months Friday in an MN courtroom. However, not all of that time will be served behind bars.
Potter is expected to serve 16 months in prison and a third of her sentence on supervised release. On top of that, she’ll have to pay a $1,000 fine. The sentence is significantly less than the seven years prosecutors suggested.
