Lawyer Mike Bryant joined me on WJON today. We discussed the upcoming sentencing of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin who was convicted of killing George Floyd. He says the guidelines indicate 12 to 30 years in prison which is why Bryant predicts around 20. Bryant says this will include time served.
Prosecutors are seeking a 30-year sentence for the former Minneapolis police officer convicted of murder in the death of George Floyd, but a defense attorney is asking that Derek Chauvin be sentenced to probation and time already served.
Former Minneapolis police Officer Derek Chauvin has been convicted of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd, the explosive case that triggered worldwide protests, violence and a furious reexamination of racism and policing in the U.S.
