Attorneys for the former Minneapolis police officer convicted of fatally shooting an unarmed woman in 2017 plan to ask a sentencing judge for no prison time.
            
If that's not granted, they're seeking less prison time than state sentencing guidelines recommend.

Mohamed Noor's lawyers filed a motion Thursday asking for a "dispositional departure" when he is sentenced June 7 for third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the fatal shooting of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, a dual citizen of the U.S. and Australia. She had called 911 to report a possible crime.

Noor's attorneys say he would be amenable to probation, in part citing his attitude in court and remorse. The maximum prison term for third-degree murder is 25 years.  The maximum sentence for second-degree manslaughter is 10 years.
