A former Tucson police officer has been charged with manslaughter after allegedly shooting an armed shoplifting suspect in a power wheelchair 9 times last year.
Ryan Remington was served with a summons on Thursday and will be arraigned next week, according to Pima County Attorney Laura Conover.
If convicted, Remington faces a sentence of 3 to 12 and a half years in prison, according to prosecutors.
Remington’s attorney, Mike Storie, stated that his client is looking forward to an impartial jury hearing the case.
According to John Bradley, a counsel for the victim’s family, the family intends to file a separate civil suit against Remington in the coming weeks.
