PHOENIX (AP) -- A judge has set a December sentencing date for a former Phoenix police officer convicted of aggravated assault.
 
Richard Chrisman was charged with second-degree murder, animal cruelty and assault after he fatally shot an unarmed 28-year-old man and his dog during a 2010 domestic violence call.
 
The jury convicted Chrisman of assault in September but failed to reach verdicts on the other two counts. Chrisman will be sentenced on the assault conviction Dec. 20. He faces anywhere from five to 15 years in prison.
 
A retrial on the second-degree murder and animal cruelty charges is set for Jan. 27.
 
Chrisman maintains he shot in self-defense.
 
Chrisman's partner testified the man wasn't a threat at the time of the shooting.
 
A judge on Wednesday also denied a defense request to set aside the assault conviction.
