Derek Chauvin sentenced in George Floyd’s murder

Derek Chauvin was sentenced to 22.5 years in prison for the murder of George Floyd. The former Minneapolis police officer was convicted in April of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.

Judge Peter Cahill of Hennepin County District Court handed down the sentence, which fell short of prosecutors’ request of 30 years in prison. Cahill said his sentence surpassed the state’s sentencing guidelines of 12 1/2 years because Chauvin abused a "position of trust and authority" and displayed a "particular cruelty" toward Floyd.

George Floyd trial: Derek Chauvin sentenced to over 22 years for murder | DW News

Derek Chauvin, a former police officer, was sentenced to prison for the murder of George Floyd on Friday.

He was sentenced to 22 1/2 years in prison — above what was called for in Minnesota state guidelines, but falling short of the 30 years requested by prosecutors.

In April, Chauvin was found guilty of killing Floyd, a 46-year-old Black man, after kneeling on his neck for over nine minutes while arresting him in May last year.

Floyd’s death sparked outrage and protests against police violence and racial discrimination across the US and the world.
