Former MN Officer Convicted of Killing Daunte Wright to be Released from Prison

Potter was sentenced to two years behind bars after being convicted of second-degree manslaughter in Wright's death.

Former Brooklyn Center, MN, police officer Kim Potter is set to be released from prison next week, after serving 16 months behind bars for the April 2021 killing of Daunte Wright.

Records show Potter is set to leave prison on Monday, Fox 9 reports.

Potter was sentenced to two years behind bars after being convicted of second-degree manslaughter in Wright's death. When released, she will serve the remaining months of her sentence on supervised release

The sentence was a downward departure from guidelines, with Judge Regina Chu deciding the departure was warranted due to factors including the killing was unintentional, not driven by animosity, and Potter mistakenly used her firearm instead or her TASER.
