Today the defense to present its last two witnesses: “slip & capture” expert, and Kim Potter herself
Welcome to our coverage of the Kim Potter manslaughter trial over the April 11, 2021, shooting death of Daunte Wright in a suburb of Minneapolis, when then-police officer Potter accidentally used her Glock 17 pistol in place of her intended Taser.
I expect that today we will see defense present its last two witnesses–“slip and capture” expert Dr. Laurence Miller, and the defendant Kim Potter herself. As a result, testimony in this trial should be completed relatively early in the day today. After that all that is left are the instruction of the jury, closing arguments, and finally jury deliberations and the delivery of a verdict.
In this LIVE post, we’ll provide real-time live streaming and commenting on the trial proceedings throughout the day, as the State continues to present its case in chief, and the defense continues to cross-examine the State’s witnesses.

Until next time:
You carry a gun so you’re hard to kill.
Know the law so you’re hard to convict.
