A prison sentence of more than 22 years was handed down for the murder of George Floyd by an ex-Police officer in the US.

A prison sentence of more than 22 years was handed down for the murder of George Floyd by an ex-Police officer in the US.

Judge Peter Cahill said, “The sentence cannot be based on sympathy or emotion,” as he handed down a 30-year sentence to prosecutors in a Minneapolis court.

Derek Chauvin, a former police officer, was jailed 22 and a half years after he and black homeowner George Floyd were shot and killed. Demonstrations in support of racial justice were the largest in decades after this killing.

Chauvin expressed his sorrow for Floyd’s family in a Minneapolis court and gave them his condolences, without apologizing, before Judge Peter Cahill sentenced him to less time than the prosecution sought.

“This (jail term) stems from your abuse of your office and authority, and also the particular cruelty was shown to George Floyd,” Chauvin responded, unexcited.

Chauvin’s mother read Chauvin’s decision after a tense hearing in which Floyd’s daughter, aged seven, left a recorded message for the court.

According to the lawyer for the Floyd family, it was a “historic” step towards racial reconciliation in the United States.

Bringing closure and accountability to the Floyd family, Ben Crump tweeted, “(It) brings our nation and our families one step closer to healing.”

President Joe Biden said: “I’m not sure all the circumstances that were taken into consideration, but that seems appropriate under the rules.”

Despite being less than what the family wanted, Al Sharpton said it sent “a message of accountability.”

Chauvin sported a light gray suit as he learned of his fate two months after being convicted of three counts of murder and manslaughter.

A few minutes later, he declined to testify during the six-week trial.

After removing his face mask, Chauvin expressed condolences to Floyd’s family.

Due to some other legal matters at this time, I am unable to provide a complete written statement.

In the future, there will be some additional information that may be of interest to you, and I hope things will be a little more precise,” he said.

Carolyn Pawlenty praised the character of her son Chauvin before he spoke.

“I will never waver from believing in your innocence,” she said.

Gianna Floyd, the late Floyd’s daughter, presented a moving video to the court earlier.

When asked in the recorded message what she would say to her father today, the girl replied, “I miss you, I love you.”.

Floyd, 46, was arrested in May 2020, with three colleagues in Minneapolis, a northern city of around 420,000 people, on suspicion of passing a fake $20 bill. The police handcuffed him and pinned him down on the street.

He was indifferent to Floyd’s groans and the pleas of distraught witnesses during nearly a 10-minute stay on his neck.

The scene, filmed and uploaded by a young woman, quickly went viral. Thousands of people took to the streets to protest racism and police brutality in response to the Covid-19 pandemic due to weeks of home confinement.

Although mass demonstrations tapered off over the past two weeks, the discussion around the pressing social issues has not died down in the United States. Biden has failed to deliver on his campaign promises regarding police reforms.

According to Minnesota law, Chauvin should receive a minimum sentence of 12.5 years, but Floyd’s brother, Terrence Floyd, told the court Cahill should give Chauvin the most brutal punishment possible.

‘Particular cruelty’

When you put your knee on my brother’s neck, what were you thinking?” Floyd demanded of Chauvin, asking why he did it.

Cahill’s sentencing memorandum outlined aggravating circumstances that led to severe punishment and said the law was the determining factor in his sentence.

Chauvin committed his offense in front of minors, and with the active participation of at least three other officers, as well, they said.

The Chauvin trial was closely watched across the country.

According to Chauvin’s lawyer, he followed police procedures, and Floyd died due to health issues worsened by drugs.

After less than ten hours of deliberation, the jury convicted the defendant. People across the country breathed a sigh of relief when they learned of their decision. Some people had feared an acquittal would exacerbate unrest, while others worry that a white policeman will get away with what they see as murder once again.

The rest of Chauvin’s prison sentence would be under supervised release after he completed two-thirds of a prison sentence for good behavior.

Nelson has said that the defense plans to appeal the verdict due to doubts over the impartiality of some jurors.

During sentencing, the judge denied the defense’s request for a new trial.

In March 2022, Chauvin’s three former co-workers will be tried for conspiracy to commit homicide.

“This (jail term) is based on your abuse of a position of trust and authority, and also the particular cruelty was shown to George Floyd,” Cahill told Chauvin, who listened impassively.

Floyd, 46, was arrested in May 2020, with three colleagues in Minneapolis, a northern city of around 420,000 people, on suspicion of passing a fake $20 bill. In the street, they handcuffed and pinned him to the ground.

He was indifferent to Floyd’s groans and the pleas of distraught witnesses during nearly a 10-minute stay on his neck.

It quickly went viral after a young woman filmed and uploaded it. As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets across the country and abroad to protest racism and police brutality.

The mass demonstrations tapered off after several weeks, but the debate around pressing social issues remains vivid in the United States, where Vice President Biden has been slow to implement the police reforms he promised during his campaign.

According to Minnesota law, Chauvin should receive a minimum sentence of 12.5 years, but Floyd’s brother, Terrence Floyd, told the court Cahill should give Chauvin the harshest punishment possible.
