Derek Chauvin gets his own personal shower

“MURDERER!” Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer convicted in the murder of George Floyd spent his first night in custody Tuesday as he awaits sentencing. He’ll spend most of it behind bars- and that includes what appears to be his own personal shower in photos that the Minnesota Department of Corrections released earlier.

Derek Chauvin will be in what is called Administrative segregation. Administrative segragration is used when someone’s presence in the general population is a safety concern,” the spokesperson said. “It’s unknown how long he will be there.”

For the safety of inmates and corrections officers, all cells are monitored by cameras. Every thirty minutes, a correction officer makes rounds to ensure that there is no trouble brewing in one of these cells. The ACU currently has 41 inmates with their sentences ranging from homicide to sexual misconduct for other offenses (Daily Inmate Report).
