Judge sentences cop who killed Daunte Wright to 2 years

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The former suburban Minneapolis police officer who said she confused her handgun for her Taser when she fatally shot Daunte Wright has been sentenced to two years in prison. Kim Potter was convicted in December of first- and second-degree manslaughter in the April 11 killing of Wright, who was Black. The sentence issued Friday is below the range of six to 8 1/2 years in prison recommended by state guidelines. But Judge Regina Chu found mitigating factors exist that gave her the authority to go lower.
