Former Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin will receive his sentence for the death of George Floyd on June 16th. Judge Peter Cahill announced the date after a jury found Chauvin guilty on all charges earlier this week.

Minnesota law dictates he can only be sentenced on the most serious charge, which is second-degree murder. That charge carries a maximum sentence of 40 years, but experts believe he will get much less.
