The former Minneapolis police officer charged in the fatal shooting of Justine Damond last July plans to plead not guilty, using self-defense and reasonable force as a defense during trial, according to court documents.
Mohamed Noor's intent to plead not guilty was included in a Rule 9 Disclosure that was filed in Hennepin County Wednesday.
Noor was charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in March. He posted bail with conditions on March 22 and was released from the Hennepin County Jail.
He is scheduled to appear for an omnibus hearing on May 8.
If convicted of third-degree murder, he could face a maximum of 25 years in prison. A judge could issue a sentence ranging from about 10 ½ to 15 years. The second-degree manslaughter charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.
