This Wednesday morning, Minnesota police officer Derek Chauvin pleaded guilty to federal charges in the civil rights case of George Floyd. It means that Chauvan will serve time in federal lockup.
Fox News shared that Chauvin was sentenced to 22 ½ years in jail once he was convicted of state murder and manslaughter charges.

He took a plea deal today where he pleaded guilty to violating the rights of a 14-year old boy in one 2017 arrest where he grabbed the boy’s throat.
The conditions of Chauvin’s plea deal shared that he will never return to work in law enforcement again and will pay restitution. The sentence hasn’t been determined yet, but the prosecutors said that they would ask for a 300 month or 25-year sentence for the federal judges.
Chauvin may be transferred to a federal lockup; his notoriety should mean that he will need to be in solitary confinement.
Chauvin, Thomas Lane, J. Kueng, and Tou Thao violated the civil rights of Floyd. Their trial will be in 2022.
“The three-count indictment alleges that all four defendants, while acting under color of law, willfully deprived Mr. Floyd of his constitutional rights,” the Department of Justice said in a statement back in May. WFSB reported that the indictment stated that “the defendants saw George Floyd lying on the ground in clear need of medical care, and willfully failed to aid Floyd, thereby acting with deliberate indifference to a substantial risk of harm to Floyd.”
