On Thursday, Minneapolis Officer Kim Potter was found guilty on all charges related to the fatal shooting of Daunte Wright.
Altogether, Potter faces 25-year sentences for first and second-degree manslaughter charges.
It took the jury (6 men and 6 women) 27 hours to come to a verdict. When the defense requested Potter be released on a $100,000 bail before sentencing, the judge rejected the idea and ordered Potter to be taken into custody immediately.
Potter was charged after she mistook her weapon for a taser. This led to Wright being fatally shot while being arrested. Bodycam footage shows Wright yelling “Taser, taser taser” before shooting Wright.
