A spokesperson for the Minnesota Correctional Facility-Oak Park Heights -- where Derek has called home since April -- tells Radar the ex-cop is still being held the "Administrative Control Unit," which is the state’s "most secure unit."

Following his sentencing on Friday, Chauvin went back to his "single cell." He will "not have contact with other incarcerated people," we have learned.

Administrative segregation is for prisoners whose "presence in the general population is a safety concern."

Radar is told the 45-year-old has no television privileges, so he's unaware of the coverage surrounding his controversial sentencing.

Chauvin was sentenced to 22.5 years in prison by a Minnesota judge, but prosecutors wanted 30 years.

"On behalf of me and my family, we seek the maximum penalty," he said as his voice shook. "We don't want to see no more slaps on the wrist. We've been through that already... no, no, no, no."

Floyd's 7-year-old daughter, Gianna, also spoke to the court.

The judge claimed he made his decision based not on emotions but facts. Many were angered Chauvin didn't get the maximum jail time.

George Floyd died on May 25, 2020, in Minneapolis, MN after reportedly presenting a counterfeit bill at a store. Four officers responded and Chauvin put his knee on Floyd's neck for over 9 minutes while George laid on the ground repeatedly saying, "I can't breathe," according to video evidence.

He was just 46 years old.
