I’ve not been able to find the scheduled date for Chauvin’s next appearance in Federal Court to face Civil Rights charges.
He had an initial appearance in early June while still awaiting his state sentencing (which ended up being 22.5 years).
Chauvin will face the charges of depriving George Floyd of his civil rights while he held him handcuffed, face down and prone with his knee to his upper back and neck.
Chauvin will also face Federal Civil Rights charges for holding a 14 year old black teenager in that same face-down-knee-to-neck position, and also striking him in the head with a flashlight causing injuries that required stitches.
Records show seven complaints of Chauvin using that same restraint on persons past the point of any resistance.
Chauvin’s actual time in prison is estimated to possibly only end up being about 15 years - 2/3 of the entire sentence with time off for good behavior.
If convicted and sentenced for federal civil rights violations, that sentence would not be added on to the end of his state time, but served concurrently. So for instance if he received 25 years for federal charges, he would still owe 2.5 years after serving his 22.5 for his state conviction.
