Washington Post Derek Chauvin pleads guilty to violating George Floyd’s civil rights

by Holly Bailey

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer convicted of murdering George Floyd, pleaded guilty Wednesday to separate federal charges that he violated Floyd’s civil rights. As part of a plea deal, Chauvin pleaded guilty to one count of violating Floyd’s civil rights and to one count of violating the rights of a 14-year-old in a separate case. Prosecutors said other related charges to those cases would be dismissed.

Prosecutors said they would recommend a sentence of 300 months in federal prison, to be served concurrently with his sentence on the murder conviction.
