New court ruling on George Floyd’s killer

A US court has issued a second prison sentence to former police officer Derek Chauvin, convicted in the murder of black citizen George Floyd.

A Minnesota court has sentenced Chauvin to 245 months (20 years and 5 months) in prison for violating the civil rights of George Floyd.

The prosecution accused Chauvin of using a chokehold on Floyd, despite the fact that he was in handcuffs and did not resist, as well as of not providing him with medical assistance.

The prosecutor asked for Chauvin to be sentenced to 25 years in prison on this charge, but Chauvin agreed with the ruling and did not add a prison term to the sentence under the previous ruling against the former policeman.

It is noteworthy that in April 2021, the court sentenced Chauvin to 22.5 years in prison for the murder of George Floyd.

It is noteworthy that the murder of the black American Floyd caused a wave of mass protests throughout the United States and abroad, acts of violence in many regions. The protesters launched a campaign under the slogan “Black Lives Matter”, denouncing racism and police violence.
