Derek Chauvin to Appeal Conviction and Prison Sentence in George Floyd Death

Update 09/24/2021 10:05am:

Reports surfaced noting that Derek Chauvin, a former Minneapolis police officer found guilty of murdering an unarmed

Black man named George Floyd, has filed documents to appeal his conviction in the matter.

Chauvin was previously convicted of second-degree unintentional murder, second-degree manslaughter, and third-

degree murder. As a result, Chauvin was sentenced to 22-and-a-half years in prison. Chauvin reportedly filed the appeal

on his own behalf, saying he was “unrepresented by legal counsel in connection with the appeal.” The man claims he was

denied a public defender in his case and asked that the Minnesota Supreme Court review the denial.

News of this comes after Chauvin reportedly pleaded not guilty in relation to a federal charge where he was accused of

violating the civil rights of a teen in a 2017 case. The situation allegedly found Chauvin using the same type of restraint on

the teen that resulted in the death of Floyd in 2020. Stay tuned for more updates.

Previously, it was revealed that Derek Chauvin was nearing a federal plea deal that could find him serving a 20-to-25 year

federal sentence. The deal would be concurrent with the 22 and a half he received in June 2021. Sources reportedly said

that Chauvin could publicly come out with a confession about what was on his mind during the 9-minute murder

involving George Floyd. Now, a mugshot for the former police officer in prison since being sentenced has surfaced.

The disgraced cop can be seen in an orange jumpsuit, and the photo comes from a mugshot taken by the Minnesota

Department of Corrections on June 28, 2021—only five days after he was sentenced to 22 years in prison for 2nd-degree

unintentional murder and 2nd-degree manslaughter.
