Kim Potter Found Guilty of First Degree Manslaughter in Death of Daunte Wright in MN

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

COURTROOM CHRONICLE, Dec 23 – In the case of the State of Minnesota v. Kim Potter for the death of Daunte Wright, the jury came back with a verdict on December 23. Inner City Press live tweeted it here:

Judge Regina Chu: Would Ms. Potter please rise? In matter of State of MN v. Potter, we the jury on the charge of manslaughter in the first degree... find the defendant GUILTY

Judge Chu: On the second charge... guilty. Agreed to on Dec 21. Members of the jury, is this your verdict? Yes. Yes [etc] Polling of jury.

Judge: Some of you said in the questionnaire you didn't want to be on this jury. But you said if the parties selected you, you'd say Yes, despite Omicron [etc].

Judge:  We'll be taking Ms. Potter into custody and holding her without bail.  Clerk: 11:30 am on January 14 for sentencing? [It's much slower in the Federal system]

Defense: We'd like it later. And we'd like to be heard on bail.

Defense: Her remorse is overwhelming. She's not a danger to the public. It is the Christmas holiday season. She is a devoted Catholic, no less. This is a rather unique case, of someone who has law enforcement experience and is 49, older than most you see.

Defense lawyer II: She's been convicted of an accident. She's been convicted for being reckless. We have facts that didn't come to light during the trial. She's under $100,000 bail and could stay under that. Sentencing sometime in late February.

Prosecutor: The convictions here including manslaughter in the first degree. It's customary to be taken into custody after conviction on this. She is not living in the state, we have learned. It's an aggravating factor.

 Defense: This is reckless negligence, not culpable negligence. Judge: The presumptive sentence here is commitment [to custody]. I am going to require she be taken into custody, without bail. I cannot treat this case any differently than any other case.

 Judge: Sentencing Feb 18. Thank you counsel. Adjourned.
