Ex-Minneapolis police officer, Derek Chauvin to be sentenced on June 16 for killing George Floyd

George Floyd and Derek Chauvin were both employees of a nightclub in Minneapolis throughout 2019

Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin is scheduled to be sentenced on June 16 after his conviction for the murder of George Floyd, a Minnesota court said on Friday, April 23.

The sentencing will take place at 1:30 p.m. CT, according to the court schedule.

The calendar update came three days after a jury found Chauvin, 45, guilty on charges of second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter in the death of George Floyd.

Chauvin’s attorneys will have 60 days to appeal the outcome.

Floyd, a 46-year-old Black man, died after Chauvin kneeled on his neck for more than nine minutes during an arrest on May 25, 2020. Video of the incident sparked a nationwide protest movement against police brutality and racism.

Chauvin faces a minimum sentence of 12.5 years and a maximum of 40 years if he serves terms for each charge concurrently. If served consecutively, he faces between 29 and 75 years.
