On July 7, 2022 Derek Chauvin was sentenced in federal court for the death of George Floyd. He was sentenced to 21 years in prison. The sentence will run concurrently with his state sentence of 22.5 years.

The sentencing took about an hour so I had to draw fast. I was able to work up one hi-res sketch depicting a member of the Floyd family reading a statement. I sent it to the media along with two crops, one of Chauvin and one of the Judge.
