Ex-Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin wants a new trial

Post by TheButcher » May 4th, 2021, 7:30 pm

Who is surprised not me, just when this case was getting some closure let's re-open the wounds of George Floyd being . For the record he was convicted of second degree unintentional murder, second degree manslaughter and third degree murder in the death of George Floydon April 20th 2021.


Ex-Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin has filed a motion seeking a new trial in the death of George Floyd, arguing that his constitutional right to a fair trial was violated multiple times throughout the proceedings.

Defense attorney Eric Nelson took issue with the judge’s refusal to grant a change of venue and the decision to not sequester jurors during the trial, among other things in a 10-point post-verdict filing.
