Former Minneapolis policeman, Thomas Lane will serve 3 years in jail for his function in the death of George Floyd. 39-year-old Lane was sentenced essentially on Wednesday early morning for a state charge of assisting and abetting second-degree murder.
Thomas Lane pleaded guilty in May to the state charge. The ex officer held down Floyd’s legs while Derek Chauvin kept his knee on his neck for 9 and a half minutes, which caused Floyd’s death.
He’s presently serving two-and-a-half years in Federal Correctional Institution Englewood in Littleton, Colorado for breaching Floyd’s civil liberties by rejecting him healthcare. Lane will serve his brand-new state sentence in federal jail.
