Attorneys for a Minneapolis police officer convicted of murder in the shooting of an unarmed woman who had called 911 say it wouldn’t do society any good to send him to prison. A jury convicted Mohamed Noor in April in the July 2017 death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond. Noor’s lawyers said in papers filed ahead of Friday’s sentencing hearing that he should instead be required to report to county detention on Damond’s birthday and the anniversary of her death.
