(Minneapolis, MN)  —  Derek Chauvin is filing an appeal after being convicted earlier this year for the murder of George Floyd.  The former Minneapolis police officer turned in the paperwork to the Minnesota Court of Appeals Thursday, the last day he could have done so.  Chauvin detailed 14 issues he had with his trial, including alleged “prejudicial prosecutorial misconduct” committed by the state.  Chauvin was convicted in April of charges that include second-degree unintentional murder and third-degree murder.  He was then sentenced in June to 22-and-a-half years in prison.
