He will also have to provide DNA samples whenever the government requests one from him. The judge told Chauvin once he is released he needs to make sure he is placed on the "predatory offender" lists which warns his neighbors someone dangerous is living nearby.

The official order states Chauvin received credit for 199 days behind bars but he will remain there for another 270 months. The 45-year-old unemployed convicted murderer will be 66 when released, if he serves out his entire sentence.

He said Chauvin acted with "particular cruelty" to George Floyd during the fatal arrest on May 25, 2020.

The court found it was "particularly cruel to Kill George Floyd" slowly by inhibiting his ability to breathe properly when he had already made it known he was having trouble breathing.

Further, the court found the "prolonged use" of the prone position was "particularly egregious" because "George Floyd made it clear he was unable to breathe and expressed the view that he was dying as a result of the officers' restraint."

The order said the jury found the "slow death of George Floyd occurring over approximately six minutes" was particularly cruel in that Mr. Floyd was begging for his life and obviously terrified by the knowledge that he was likely to due but" Chauvin remained indifferent regardless.

Chauvin spoke during the hearing and addressed Floyd's family for the first time. He said he was sorry for their loss and issued an ominous message about more information set to be released in the near future about Floyd's death.
