Derek Chauvin will have to wait nine additional days to learn what his sentencing will be. Due to a scheduling conflict, Judge Peter Cahill will hand Chauvin his sentencing on June 25 instead of June 16.
Last week, Chauvin was convicted on three counts of murder and manslaughter. He currently faces up to 40 years in prison, but it is highly unlikely he will receive the heaviest sentence available to Cahill. Due to his lack of prior criminal history, legal experts believe that Chauvin will receive anywhere between 12 and 17 years.
Meanwhile, Chauvin’s former colleagues, J. Alexander Keung, Tou Thao and Thomas Lane, will soon stand trial. The trio of former police officers has been accused of aiding and abetting manslaughter and murder. Lane, Thao and Keung have all plead not guilty and will stand trial in late August.
Derek Chauvin's sentencing has been rescheduled to June 25 at 1:30 p.m. It was previously set to take place on June 16. #DerekChauvinTrial
