Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin plans to appeal his murder conviction in the death of George Floyd.
According to CBS News, Chauvin filed the appeal on Thursday in the Minnesota Court of Appeals.
The Associated Press reported that Chauvin raised 14 issues in his appeal, including Judge Peter Cahill’s handling of not changing the trial venue, the court denying a request to sequester the jury, and denying his request to postpone the trial.
After being convicted in April of second degree unintentional murder, second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter, Chauvin was sentenced to 22 1/2 years imprisonment in June.
Floyd’s death sparked nationwide protests after a video showed the former Minneapolis police officer kneeling on Floyd’s neck with him pleading, “I can’t breathe.”
