Ex-Minneapolis police officer J. Alexander Kueng was sentenced today to three years in federal prison and fellow former officer Tou Thou was sentenced to three-and-a-half years for violating the civil rights of George Floyd. Kueng, Thao and Thomas Lane were convicted in February of not intervening when former officer Derek Chauvin caused Floyd’s death by kneeling on his neck. Lane received a 30-month federal prison sentence last week. Kueng and Thao are also scheduled to stand trial on state charges in October for aiding and abetting manslaughter and murder.
