(KSL News) -- A Granite School District police officer, accused of shooting an unarmed man, makes a court appearance.

Todd Rasmussen worked the security night shift for the school district.

Last October, he shot a suspect following a high speed chase, leaving him seriously injured.

The Salt Lake County District Attorney's office claimed Rasmussen was not justified in firing his gun, and charged him with aggravated assault.

He now faces one to 15 years in prison.
