Former Minneapolis police officer Thomas Lane pleaded guilty Wednesday to a state charge of aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter in the killing of George Floyd.
As part of his plea deal, Lane will have the count of aiding and abetting second-degree unintentional murder dismissed.
Lane, along with fellow former Minneapolis officers J. Alexander Kueng and Tou Thao, was already found guilty on federal counts of willfully violating civil rights that led to Floyd’s death.
Minnesota recommended a sentence of three years for the former officer — which is below state sentencing guidelines, according to the associated press. Lane has not yet been sentenced in the federal case.
