In Minnesota, a judge has found there were aggravating factors in former police officer Derek Chauvin’s murder of George Floyd last May. The factors are: Chauvin abused his position of trust and authority; he acted with “particular cruelty”; he committed the crime in a group with at least three other people; and children were present at the time. The finding means Chauvin is more likely to face a longer sentence for murdering Floyd. His sentencing is scheduled for June 25.
