Trial of George Floyd: convicted ex-police officer appeals
Sylvie Claire / September 24, 2021
Former U.S. police officer Derek Chauvin has appealed his 22-and-a-half-year prison sentence for the 2020 murder of African-American George Floyd, according to court documents released Thursday.
Derek Chauvin is appealing 14 points of his conviction, handed down June 25 by the Minnesota court for killing George Floyd by kneeling on his neck for 10 minutes. He complains in particular that the judge did not order that the jurors be put in solitary confinement during the trial.
