Hennepin County District Court Judge Peter Cahill is expected to hand down Chauvin's sentence after a short recess.Reporting from CNN's Aaron Cooper contributed to this post.WATCH:Derek Chauvin's attorney, Eric Nelson, reflected on the trial today in court prior to the sentencing, saying he hopes the result of the case "brings forth principled debate and civil public discourse and ultimately leaves a positive effect on the city of Minneapolis."Nelson added: "In the end, it's my sincere hope when this proverbial dust settles, the community impact brings forth principled debate and civil public discourse and ultimately leaves a positive effect on the city of Minneapolis, city of Minnesota and the United States."Carolyn Pawlenty, the mother of Derek Chauvin, said her son is "a good man" and someone who "always dedicated his life and time to the police department.""Even on his days off, he would call to see if they needed help," she said.Chauvin, 45, was convicted in April on charges of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter for his role in George Floyd's death.Pawlenty added: "My son's identity has also been reduced to that as a racist. Directing her comments to Chauvin she said, "I want you to know I've always believed in your innocence, and I will never waiver from that."Chauvin's sentencing hearing for the killing of George Floyd last year has started in Minneapolis, with the former police officer facing a potentially lengthy prison stay.The guilty verdict on all three charges against Chauvin came nearly a year after he impassively kneeled on the neck and back of Floyd, handcuffed and lying prone on the street, for 9 minutes and 29 seconds.
