Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin [[SHO-vin]] is facing at least two decades in prison after reaching a plea deal in his federal civil rights trial. Chauvin pled guilty yesterday morning to one count of violating George Floyd’s civil rights during his deadly May 2020 arrest. Prosecutors agreed to dismiss a second civil rights violation charge and a set of charges related to allegations he badly beat a Black teen with a flashlight in 2017. The judge sentenced Chauvin to 20 to 25 years in prison.
