Derek Chauvin files appeal against conviction, sentence in Floyd’s death case
TRT World says Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis policeman convicted of murdering George Floyd, has filed an appeal with a Minnesota district court, citing 14 complaints related to his trial earlier this year.
Among the 14 complaints, he claims Judge Peter Cahill abused his discretion when he denied Chauvin’s request to move the trial out of Hennepin County due to pretrial publicity.
He also claimed the judge abused his discretion when he denied a request to sequester the jury for the duration of the trial, and when he denied requests to postpone the trial or grant a new one.
