Derek Chauvin Sentenced to 22.5 Years , for Murder of George Floyd.
The former Minneapolis police officer received the prison sentence from Judge Peter A. Cahill on June 25.
Earlier this year, Chauvin was convicted on charges of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the case of Floyd's death.
In handing down his sentence,
Judge Cahill made it clear that it
was not based on emotion.
But he made a point to acknowledge what the Floyd family
has been through since George Floyd was killed
more than a year ago.
I want to acknowledge the deep and tremendous pain that all of the families are feeling, especially the Floyd family, Judge Peter A. Cahill, via 'The New York Times'.
The death of George Floyd sparked a national
reckoning over the issues of race in America...
... that reverberated in protests and
violence in cities all over the world.
Before the sentencing, Chauvin addressed
the Floyd family for the first time.
Due to some additional legal matters at hand, I’m not able to give a full formal statement at this time. But, very briefly, I want to give my condolences to the Floyd family, Derek Chauvin, via statement
