Derek Chauvin was sentenced to 22.5 years in prison for the murder of George Floyd. The former Minneapolis police officer was convicted in April of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.

Judge Peter Cahill of Hennepin County District Court handed down the sentence, which fell short of prosecutors’ request of 30 years in prison. Cahill said his sentence surpassed the state’s sentencing guidelines of 12 1/2 years because Chauvin abused a “position of trust and authority” and displayed a “particular cruelty” toward Floyd.
