(Minneapolis, MN)  —  The Minnesota Supreme Court denies Derek Chauvin’s request for a public defender.  Chauvin was denied a public defender last month, appealed the decision to the Supreme Court, and was denied again earlier this week.  Chauvin could request a public defender again in the future if it’s determined he can’t pay for his own lawyer.  He’s expected to appeal his conviction in the murder of George Floyd.
