Derek Chauvin, who was convicted in April 2021 for second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter for his role in George Floyd's death, appeared in court for his sentence hearing on Friday, June 25. Chauvin was the first White Minnesota cop to be convicted of murdering a Black man. Floyd's death had sparked worldwide protests, giving rise to the 'Black Lives Matter' movement.

Chauvin's attire for his court appearance grabbed attention as the ex-cop opted for a grey suit and tie, with a shaved head. He also donned a blue medical mask. The internet had a lot to say about Chauvin's 'sartorial choices' for his sentence hearing.

Hours before the final sentencing, judge Peter Cahill denied Chauvin's attorney's motion for a new trial stating that he "failed to demonstrate that the court abused its discretion or committed error such that defendant was deprived of his constitutional right to a fair trial". Chauvin's attorney Eric Nelson had requested a new trial on the grounds of jury misconduct after one of the jurors on the case, Brandon Mitchell, reportedly attended an anti-police protest last summer.

As the hearing began, Floyd's daughter Gianna Floyd made the first victim impact statement. "I miss him all the time," she said. Speaking of one thing she could tell her dad at this moment, Gianna said she would say, "I love you and I miss you."
