Charges announced in George Floyd case

Posted on: June 3rd, 2020 by Romanucci & Blandin

Attorney Ben Crump and George Floyd’s Family Release Statement on the Upgrade of Chauvin Charges and Arrest of Other Three Officers 

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — Nationally renowned civil rights attorney Ben Crump, the legal team, and the family of George Floyd have released the following statement in anticipation of Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison’s announcement of the arrest of the other three officers involved in the death of George Floyd and the addition of a felony second-degree murder charge against fired officer Derek Chauvin:

“This is a bittersweet moment for the family of George Floyd. We are deeply gratified that Attorney General Keith Ellison took decisive action in this case, arresting and charging all the officers involved in George Floyd’s death and upgrading the charge against Derek Chauvin to felony second-degree murder. This is a significant step forward on the road to justice, and we are gratified that this important action was brought before George Floyd’s body was laid to rest. That is a source of peace for George’s family in this painful time. Attorney General Ellison has informed the family that his office will continue to investigate and will upgrade the charges to first-degree murder if the evidence supports it.  

“These officers knew they could act with impunity, given the Minneapolis Police Department’s widespread and prolonged pattern and practice of violating people’s constitutional rights. Therefore, we also demand permanent transparent police accountability at all levels and at all times. We are deeply grateful for the outpouring of support by Americans in cities across the country, and we urge them to raise their voices for change in peaceful ways. Our message to them is: Find constructive and positive ways to keep the focus and pressure on. Don’t let up on your demand for change.”
