The defense memorandum presented to the federal court by ex-police Derek Chauvin, who put pressure on the neck of black George Floyd while he was detained on May 25, 2020, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, was accepted.

Federal Judge Paul Magnuson, who is handling the case on federal charges of violating his civil rights and obstructing a trial in Floyd’s death, said in a statement that Chauvin accepted the terms of the plea agreement and that Chauvin was sentenced to 20 to 25 years in prison. He said he would be punished.

Chauvin, who is serving a 22.5-year prison sentence by the state court, has not yet been given a date for his sentence to be handed down by the federal court.

In the federal court case regarding Floyd’s murder, Chauvin, who was found guilty of violating Floyd’s civilized rights, first accepted the charges filed regarding Floyd’s death in the court where he appeared in December 2021. Chauvin, who changed his defense to “guilty” as a result of the agreement he made with the prosecutor continued, admitted that Floyd violated his civil rights and to press on his neck with his knee, even though Floyd was unconscious.

Former police officer Chauvin, who was held responsible for Floyd’s death in June 2020, was found guilty of murder in June 2021 by the state court and sentenced to 22.5 years in prison. Chauvin will serve his 25-year sentence, which is expected to be handed down by the federal court, at the same time as the 22.5-year sentence handed down by the state court.
