Mohamed Noor, 33, was sentenced to 12.5 years in prison for the 2017 killing of 40-year-old Justine Ruszczyk Damond

Noor was convicted in April of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter, but cleared of second-degree intentional murder 

Noor read a statement in court apologizing for his 'error' that caused the tragedy

Defense team had proposed the judge sentence Noor to serve two weeks in jail every year on Damond's birthday and anniversary of her death
