Minnesota Attorney General filed documents on Friday, demanding that Derek Chauvin be sentenced to more severe imprisonment for the murder of George Floyd, and Floyd pleaded for his life, causing a horrific death to former Minneapolis police officers. Claimed to impose a method.
Chauvin, who will be convicted of a second murder in June, abused his power as a police officer, and Floyd was handcuffed and shouted for his mother, Keith Ellison. .. Said in statutory document Submitted to the Hennepin County District Court in Minnesota.
“Mr. Floyd was treated particularly cruel .. .. When Mr. Floyd shouted that he was in pain, when Mr. Floyd shouted 27 times that he could not breathe, and Mr. Floyd’s actions were his defendant’s actions. The defendant continued to maintain his position on Mr. Floyd, even when he said he was killing him, “Ellison said. He added that Chauvin stayed there when Floyd shouted for his mother, stopped speaking, and lost consciousness.
The prosecution also wrote that Chauvin’s actions caused psychological distress not only to Floyd, but to the private bystanders they claimed to have “caused unnecessary pain.” You will be plagued by the memory of what they see.
Four of the crowd watching Floyd die were minors, court filing said.
“Therefore, the defendant did more than just cause physical distress. He caused psychological distress to Mr. Floyd at the last moment of his life and squeezed the last traces of his life from Mr. Floyd’s body. Sometimes he helped Mr Floyd, “said Filing.
Defendant lawyer Eric Nelson opposed a harsher ruling when Chauvin arrested Floyd on May 25, saying the state could not prove that these aggravating factors existed, among other things. There is.
Nelson also said that Floyd had not been treated particularly cruelly, and that there was no evidence that Chauvin’s assault was unnecessarily painful, usually unrelated to the second murder.
“Mr. Floyd’s assault took place in a very short period of time and did not include threats or provocations such as placing a gun on his head and triggering … and the EMS finally responded to a police call. It was over when I was there, “Nelson wrote.
White Chauvin was convicted last week of two unintentional murders, three murders, and two manslaughter charges for pressing his knees against Floyd’s neck for nine and a half minutes. It doesn’t work.
He was found guilty of three charges, but under Minnesota law he was sentenced only to one of the most serious, the second murder. That number can be sentenced to up to 40 years, but experts say he can’t get that much.
The prosecutor did not specify a time to look for Chauvin.
According to Minnesota’s ruling guidelines, the estimated second unintentional murder of a person without a criminal record, such as Chauvin, is 12 and a half years. A judge can sentence someone to a sentence of 10 years, 8 months, or 15 years, but it is still within the recommended guidelines. To go beyond that, Judge Peter Carhill needs to discover that there are “deteriorating factors,” and even if they do, legal experts will not face Chauvin for more than 30 years. I’m telling you.
The prosecution said Friday that the upward deviation from the ruling guidelines was justified because of multiple exacerbations in the case.
