Micah Beals, who appeared in 'Parks and Recreation' and 'CSI:NY' under the stage name Micah Femia, was also reportedly arrested earlier this year for a curfew violation in Washington D.C. after the Capitol riot.
The ex-cop was charged in federal court with violating George Floyd's civil rights when he knelt on the Black man's neck for about 9 1/2 minutes as Floyd was facedown on the pavement, not resisting and pleading for air.
Attorneys for J. Kueng and Tou Thao said Tuesday that their clients would be unfairly prejudiced if they went to trial alongside Derek Chauvin, who was convicted on state murder charges for killing George Floyd.
"No sentence can undo Mr. Floyd's death, and no sentence can undo the trauma Defendant's actions have inflicted. But the sentence the Court imposes must show that no one is above the law, and no one is below it," prosecutors wrote in court documents urging a lengthy sentence for former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin.
