Hennepin County District Judge Peter Cahill sentenced former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin to 22.5 years for the murder of George Floyd. The court heard victim-impact statements from four members of Floyd's family, and Chauvin gave brief remarks.
The former Minneapolis police officer has been serving time in a medium-security prison in Arizona, where he was stabbed and wounded by another prisoner.
Chauvin, 47, remains incarcerated at a medium-security federal prison in Tucson, Ariz.
In the motion to vacate, Chauvin states he would not have pleaded guilty in his federal case if his attorney at the time, Eric Nelson, informed him that a pathologist offered to testify that Chauvin didn't cause Floyd's death.
The former Minneapolis police officer agreed to a plea deal that recommends he serve 25 years, instead of life, in a federal prison.
