Former Minneapolis police officer Thomas Lane pleaded guilty on May 18

May 19, 2022

Former Minneapolis police officer Thomas Lane pleaded guilty on May 18 to a state charge of abetting the second-degree manslaughter death of George Floyd in May 2020, the Associated Press reports.

Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison said in a statement, “His acknowledgment he did something wrong is an important step toward healing the wounds of the Floyd family, our community, and the nation.”

Under the plea deal, a count of aiding and abetting second-degree unintentional murder is dismissed. And the state is recommending a three-year sentence served in federal prison, a sentence that’s below Minnesota’s guidelines, according to the AP.

The three former Minneapolis police officers were at the scene when ex-cop Derek Chauvin murdered Floyd on May 25, 2020.
