Derek Chauvin got another ruling detrimental to his penal interest on Tuesday, May 11. His term of imprisonment for the murder of George Floyd surely just got longer. That’s thanks to a ruling made by trial and sentencing Judge Peter Cahill, who made key factual findings. Cahill found that, beyond a reasonable doubt, Chauvin did commit the crime with several aggravating factors present.
The maximum sentence for Second Degree Murder in Minnesota is 40 years in prison. However, for someone with no prior criminal record like Chauvin, the state sentencing guidelines say the presumptive sentence is 12 1/2 years. Now that the aggravating factors are ruled proven, the judge will likely deviate upward from the guidelines and hand Chauvin a long sentence on June 25.
