Derek Chauvin Placed In ‘Segregation,’ No Contact With Other Inmates

Convicted murdered Derek Chauvin has been placed in the prison’s “administrative segregation,” and is not allowed to watch television.

A source told Radar that Chauvin only has access to a few items in his single cell and has been put on “administrative segregation” because his safety is a concern for the Minnesota Correctional Facility-Oak Park Height.

Chauvin is being housed in a cell by himself and will not have contact with other inmates, officials said. Items allowed in ACU cells include clothing, footwear, towels, bedding, writing paper, and pen as well as toothpaste, soap, deodorant, shampoo, a comb, and a restricted housing packet, according to the Department of Corrections website.

Photos of a typical ACU cell feature a toilet and sink, a small shower area, and a sleeping space. Inmates are given a cushion that serves as a mattress. The cells are sealed off by a door with bars, which is separated by a small space with another door, according to the images.

He will remain at the facility for eight weeks until he is sentenced for murdering George Floyd.

A jury of six whites and six people of color came back with its verdict after just 10 hours of deliberations. Chauvin officer was found guilty of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter.

He faces up to 40 years in prison.
