George Floyd, today the sentence for former agent Chauvin


The sentence of former police officer Derek Chauvin in the trial for the death of George Floyd is awaited by the Minneapolis court today. Chauvin was found guilty of second degree murder by the jury at the end of April. The defense of the former policeman has asked for the suspension of the sentence, while the prosecution has asked for 30 years in prison. The violent death of African American Floyd at the hands of Chauvin on May 25 last year, during a police detention, triggered a series of demonstrations, often leading to violence, throughout the United States. Former white policeman Chauvin was also found guilty of third degree murder and second degree manslaughter. However, the sentence will only be imposed for the first and most serious offense under the laws of Minnesota. The former agent faces up to 40 years in prison.
