Derek Chauvin , a former police officer in Minneapolis who murdered George Floyd, sent to prison for 22.5 years

Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin is guilty of murder and will serve 22.5 years behind bars.

MINNEAPOLIS – Derek Chauvin , a former police officer in Minneapolis who murdered George Floyd and set the community ablaze, has been sent to prison for 22.5 years after sentencing Friday.

Derek Chauvin, back in April, was found guilty by a jury in Minneapolis of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the killing of George Floyd.  Chauvin showed no emotion as the verdict was read.

Several of Chauvin’s co-workers who stood by while Chauvin committed the heinous murder also await justice.

Chauvin’s murder of Floyd by placing a knee into Floyd’s neck for over 9 minutes over an alleged petty crime set off a shockwave of violence and protests across the nation.  In some places, statues of Floyd have been erected in his remembrance.
