Derek Chauvin Sentencing Approching

So now with the sentencing coming up later this month for Derek Chauvin who found guilty of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and manslaughter in the killing of George Floyd and the prosecution asking for a 30 year sentence …defense attorney Eric J. Nelson argued that Chauvin should be given probation and time served, or a lighter sentence. 

according to the filing it says “Mr. Chauvin asks the Court to look beyond its findings, to his background, his lack of criminal history, his amenability to probation, to the unusual facts of this case, and to his being a product of a ‘broken’ system, 

“Mr. Chauvin’s offense is best described as an error made in good faith reliance his own experience as a police officer and the training he had received—not intentional commission of an illegal act,

He also claimed that Chauvin has been preliminarily diagnosed with heart damage and his client “is nearing the healthier years of his life.” Also the likelihood of him becoming a target in prison

Chauvin is scheduled to be sentenced on June 25
