US jury finds police Kim Potter guilty of killing young black Daunte Wright

A jury found the Brooklyn Center white police guilty Thursday (U.S.) who last April killed the young black man Daunte Wright allegedly mistaking her pistol for her electro-shock or taser weapon, an event that sparked numerous protests.

After three and a half days of deliberations, the jury found Kim Potter guilty of the two charges she faced: manslaughter in the first and second degree.

The first charge carries a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison and a fine of $ 30,000, while the second carries 10 years in prison and a fine of $ 20,000.
