Previous US law enforcement officer Derek Chauvin has been jailed for 22-and-a-50 % decades for murdering George Floyd in Minneapolis final 12 months.
Chauvin, 45, was convicted of second and third diploma murder and manslaughter in April about a case that made international headlines and sparked protests.
Movie showed the white police officer had his knee on the neck of Mr Floyd, a black male, for extra than nine minutes whilst arresting him on 25 May 2020.
Mr Floyd was staying arrested on suspicion of using a phony $20 take note but he was handcuffed, restrained, and regularly known as out “I cannot breathe” in advance of he died.
The situation re-energised the Black Life Make a difference movement, with protests throughout the US and in other countries from racial inequality and police brutality.
Much less than a dozen police officers have been sentenced for an on-duty murder in the US in the final 15 a long time and Chauvin is the very first white law enforcement officer in Minnesota to be convicted of killing a black male.
The three other officers who encountered Mr Floyd that working day are facing trial in August.
They and Chauvin also confront federal rates of depriving Mr Floyd of his civil rights and a conviction carries a probable dying sentence.
