A Minnesota judge has found aggravating factors in Derek Chauvin’s murder of George Floyd — a finding that dramatically increases the likelihood of a longer sentence.
Chauvin, a former Minneapolis police officer, was found guilty last month of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the death of George Floyd in May 2020.
Here is the order that Judge Peter Cahill made public:
Chauvin sentencing pushed back to June 25
Sentencing for former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin in George Floyd’s killing has been pushed back to June 25, according to online court records.
Chauvin’s June 16 hearing was reset by Hennepin County Judge Peter Cahill. A brief entry Thursday in the online court docket gave no reason, but court spokesperson Spenser Bickett said it was moved due a scheduling conflict.
The hearing time remains 1:30 p.m.
