Here’s the first look at Derek Chauvin behind bars since he was sentenced for murdering George Floyd, and he looks … well, sleepy with a measure of defiance.
TMZ’s obtained Chauvin’s first mug shot in prison … a place he’ll call home as he serves his 22.5-year sentence. He kept a stiff upper lip as he mugged for the camera in his orange standard issue. He also looks like he’s struggling to keep his eyes open … he looks out of it.
We’re told the Minnesota Department of Corrections snapped the new mug shot June 28 … just 5 days after his sentencing.
As you know … Chauvin was found guilty of 2nd-degree unintentional murder, 3rd-degree murder and 2nd-degree manslaughter … but the 2nd-degree conviction is what sticks.
The former Minneapolis police officer learned his fate 2 months after the verdict.
