Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was sentenced to 22.5 years in prison for his role in George Floyd’s death. Judge Peter Kerhill of the Hennepin County District sentenced in a Minneapolis court on Friday hours after denying the defense’s request for a new trial.
Prior to the ruling, Floyd’s family read the statement in court, and Chauvin expressed his condolences to the family. The 45-year-old boy was convicted of two unintentional murders, three murders, and two manslaughter charges.
Prosecutors demanded a 30-year sentence, but Chauvin’s defense team demanded a shorter sentence or probation. The defense claimed that the former police officer had no criminal record.
