Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin is being sentenced to just over 20 years in prison on federal charges. Chauvin was sentenced in 2021 to over 22-years on state charges of second-degree unintentional murder after he kneeled on George Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes. He pleaded guilty last year to a federal charge of violating Floyd’s civil rights. Before his sentencing, Chauvin told Floyd’s children in court that he wished “all the best in their life.”
