Derek Chauvin, Former police officer who murdered George Floyd to be sentenced on Friday

Derek Chauvin, the former police officer convicted in the murder of George Floyd, will be sentenced Friday in Minneapolis.


Chauvin was convicted April 20 of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in Floyd's death. 

The former police officer, who has been in jail since his conviction, also faces separate federal civil rights charges in Floyd's death.

 
 

Floyd, a Black man, was killed in May 2020 when Chauvin, who is white, kneeled on his neck for more than 9 minutes. 

The most serious count against Chauvin, second-degree murder, carries a maximum sentence of 40 years. 

Legal experts, however, say a more practical maximum sentence is 30 years, because anything higher risks being overturned on appeal.
