Johnnie Riley faces a mandatory prison sentence.
In his first public defense of his actions, former District Heights, Md., police sergeant Johnnie Riley told the jury in his attempted murder trial it "slipped his mind" that the suspect he shot in the back was in handcuffs.
She says, the cop was in no type of danger as the suspect was running away from him - so he shouldn't have shot him.
