MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The former Minneapolis police officer serving time for the 2020 murder of George Floyd has pleaded guilty to two counts of tax evasion.
Derek Chauvin entered the plea Friday in a Minnesota court before Washington County Judge Sheridan Hawley.
Chauvin appeared via Zoom from a federal prison in Tucson, Arizona.
Chauvin and his now ex-wife were charged with multiple counts of underreporting their income and failing to file tax returns.
His ex-wife pleaded guilty earlier to two counts.
Chauvin was previously convicted on state murder charges for the May 2020 killing of Floyd and on a federal count of violating the Black man’s civil rights.
