A federal judge has accepted Derek Chauvin’s plea deal and will sentence him to 20-25 years in prison.

The scope of that provision was outlined in the petition filed months ago, which also stated that Chauvin was expected to serve between 17 and just over 21, “assuming all good credit.”

State investigation after George Floyd's murder reveals a decade of 'race-based' discriminatory policing;  in Minneapolis

Chauvin was sentenced last June after a former Minneapolis police officer was convicted of murder in Floyd’s death in 2020.

At the federal level, Chauvin pleaded guilty in December 2021 to violating the civil rights of George Floyd.

Based on the petition filed, this sentence will be served concurrently with the 22.5-year prison sentence linked to his statewide murder conviction.
