This comes over a year after George Floyd was killed in Minneapolis.
According to The New York Times, Chauvin has been sentenced to 22 and a half years in prison by Judge Peter A. Cahill of Hennepin County District Court.
Chauvin reportedly made a brief statement during the hearing, during which he offered condolences to George Floyd's family.
The prosecution was seeking a 30-year sentence but when the hearing concluded, Chauvin was given a 22.5-year sentence.
He was found guilty on all counts back in April 2021. The charges included second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter.
This sentencing does not bring an end to Chauven's hearings as he is still facing criminal charges in federal court for the violation of Floyd's constitutional rights.
