Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin is seeking to overturn his federal civil rights conviction for the murder of George Floyd, presenting new evidence suggesting he did not cause Floyd’s death.

Chauvin claims he would not have pleaded guilty in 2021 if he had known about a pathologist’s theories regarding Floyd’s cause of death.

He is requesting the judge to dismiss his conviction, order a new trial, or hold a hearing to present the new evidence. (Trending: Photos Released Of Cocaine Found In White House)

Chauvin, who is currently serving a 21-year sentence, filed the request without legal representation, citing a pathologist’s belief that Floyd died from complications of a rare tumor.

The pathologist reportedly reached this conclusion after reading Floyd’s autopsy report.

Chauvin asserts that the pathologist’s evidence, if presented to the jury, would have led to a different verdict.

Chauvin’s appeals have been rejected twice by a federal court judge. The U.S. Supreme Court has not reached a decision on whether they will hear Chauvin’s case involving state murder chargers.
