Ex-Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin sentenced to 22.5 years in prison for George Floyd murder

  • A judge sentenced former Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin on Friday to 22-and-a-half years in prison for the murder of George Floyd.
  • That was less than the 40-year maximum for the killing of Floyd, a Black man, whose videotaped death with Chauvin kneeling on his neck on May 25, 2020, sparked demands for reform of U.S. police departments.
  • Three of Chauvin's fellow ex-police officers are awaiting trial on related Minnesota state criminal charges next March.
