The ex-policeman claims that his constitutional right to a fair trial has been violated several times. In particular, mistakes were made by the jury and the prosecutor's office during the consideration of the case, which means that Shovin's sentence, according to his lawyer, is contrary to the law, writes Reuters.
We will remind, the former policeman in April was found guilty of manslaughter of Floyd by the jury. The verdict has not yet been announced. The former police officer faces up to 40 years in prison. The defense side during the hearings in the case argued that Floyd died from drug intoxication, and not because Chauvin pressed his knee on his throat during the arrest.
Floyd passed away last May. After his death, mass protests began in the United States within the framework of the Black Lives Matter movement.
