Former police officer Derek Sauvin, who was sentenced to 22,5 years in prison for the 2020 murder of African-American George Floyd, filed an appeal on Thursday, according to court documents.

In April, Sauvin was found guilty by a jury of all three charges against Floyd's death, after in May 2020 the white former police officer held his knee to his neck for almost 9 minutes. On June 25, a Minnesota judge sentenced Sauvin to 22,5 years in prison.

The appeal documents were filed by Sovin himself, as he stated that he is no longer represented by a lawyer and for this reason he asked the court to hear his appeal after he managed to find a lawyer to represent him.

In fact, the former police officer complained that earlier in September, the state-appointed lawyer refused to represent him.

Sauvin cites 14 reasons why his case should be reconsidered, including the fact that the judge did not agree to change the place of his trial and that he did not ask for the jurors to remain in solitary confinement during the trial. .
