(Minneapolis, MN) — Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin faces up to 40 years in prison when he’s sentenced today for the killing of George Floyd. Chauvin was found guilty on all three counts of second- and third-degree murder for Floyd’s death, which sparked protests around the world. Prosecutors are calling for at least 30 years behind bars. His attorney says the former police officer should receive only probation. Chauvin chose not to testify in his own defense at his trial, but will have an opportunity to speak on his own behalf today before being sentenced.
