Former Minneapolis policeman Derek Chauvin has filed a major appeals brief cataloging the improprieties in his trial for the “murder” of long-time drug addict and career criminal George Floyd.

Convicted a year ago after public threats of rioting if he were acquitted, Chauvin’s 72-page plea details prosecutorial misconduct and reversible judicial errors. The brief demands either a reversal of his conviction, reversal and a new trial, or reversal and a new sentence that comports with state guidelines.
