Potter, a 26-year veteran of the Brooklyn Center Police Department, is charged with first- and second-degree manslaughter in Wright’s death during a traffic-stop-turned arrest in April.
Prosecutors say Potter was “reckless” and consciously took the risk of causing harm to Wright and others. Defense attorneys say Potter mistook her firearm for a Taser but would have been justified in using a firearm anyway because she was attempting to prevent the injury of another officer.
