The Minneapolis police officer, who fatally shot an unarmed woman after she called 911 to report a possible rape happening behind her home, was sentenced Thursday to nearly five years in prison — the most the judge could impose but less than half the 12½ years he was sentenced to for his murder conviction that was overturned last month.
