The former Minneapolis agent who shot the dead Australian life coach Justine Ruszczyk Damond has suggested an unusual sentence with a week-long stint in a prison workshop to & honor her date and date of birth & # 39 ;.
Mohamed Noor, 33, faces a maximum jail term of 12.5 years when he stands before Judge Kathryn Quantance in Minneapolis on Saturday after a jury convicted him in April of murder and manslaughter of the second degree.
Noor suggests in a pre-sentence to the judge that he reports for a week on the date of Mrs. Damond's death and the date of Mrs. Damond's birth for the duration of his probationary period, to a low-security prison facility.
He also asks for community service.

& # 39; This sentence honors Mrs. Rusczcyk's memory and allows Mr. Noor to continue serving the city & # 39 ;, Norwegian lawyers, Thomas Plunkett and Peter Wold, wrote to the judge in their memorandum.
& # 39; It is equally important that Mr. Noor will continue to consider his action and the great loss they caused. & # 39;
If Judge Quantance does not agree, Noor suggests that he will be sentenced to one year and one day imprisonment.
Prosecutors still have to announce their proposed sentence.
Noor shot Mrs. Damond, 40, dead after calling 911 to report a possible rape in an alley behind her home in Minneapolis just before midnight on July 15, 2017.
Mrs. Damond, originally from the northern beaches of Sydney, was barefoot and dressed in pajama pants and a pink shirt adorned with & # 39; Koala Australia & # 39; and a photo of a koala and baby as she approached Noor's police vehicle.
Noor, sitting in the passenger seat, shot over his partner Matthew Harrity, who was sitting in front of the driver's seat, and out of the car window that hit Mrs. Damond in the stomach.

Noor and officer Harrity testified that they were shocked by Mrs. Damond.
Damond's father, John Ruszczyk, and brother, Jason, filed a US $ 50 million lawsuit against Minneapolis and just after the jury's guilty verdicts, the city agreed to pay US $ 20 million.
Noor & # 39; s application also included 44 letters from family, friends, and former colleagues who spoke Noor's contributions to the community.
