Prison is not doing Derek Chauvin good. The ex-cop-turned-convicted murderer is sporting a drastically different look in the first photos since being found guilty of George Floyd's murder.

The 45-year-old former police officer can be seen wearing his orange prison garb in the mug shot taken at the Minnesota Correctional Facility at Oak Park Heights.

Chauvin's photo was taken in June, just five days after Hennepin County Judge Peter Cahill sentenced him to 22.5 years in prison.

In the mug shot, Chauvin is sporting a frown and stubble for facial hair, but not much on top.

He seems to be rocking a buzz cut these days -- unless he's going bald from all the stress behind bars.

This is a shocking new look, compared to his last mug shot and his sentencing where he was sporting hair.

Chauvin also seems to be packing on the pounds, thanks to all that greasy prison food.

His eyes appear tired and droopy, most likely due to being on administrative segregation.

As exclusively reported, Chauvin is still not allowed to mingle with fellow inmates, despite his guilty verdict.

A spokesperson for the Minnesota Correctional Facility-Oak Park Heights told us the disgraced ex-cop is still being held in the "Administrative Control Unit," which is the state’s "most secure unit."

He is holed up in a "single cell" and can "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."

While in his single cell, Chauvin has no television privileges, and his only form of entertainment is a writing utensil and pad of paper.

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

Floyd's brother, Terrence Floyd, asked the judge to show no mercy when he gave his testimony in court.

"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 gave an emotional testimony, telling the court how much she missed her dad.

He died on May 25, 2020, after Chauvin put his knee on Floyd's neck for more than 9 minutes and ignored George's plea that he couldn't breathe.
