Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer who killed George Floyd, has pleaded guilty to three counts of filing false tax returns.
Chauvin, who was convicted of second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter in the death of Floyd last year, entered the plea Wednesday in Hennepin County court.
The false tax returns charge related to under-reporting his income in 2014, 2015 and 2016. Officials say he failed to report a total of $464,433 in gross income during those years, resulting in an underpayment of $21,843 in taxes.
Chauvin faces up to three years in prison and a fine of up to $75,000. He will be sentenced in the tax case at a later date.
