In connection with the attack on former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who was allegedly stabbed 22 times in a federal prison in Arizona last week, federal prosecutors have indicted a 52-year-old ex-gang leader.

In accordance with court documents, John Turscak, a former Mexican Mafia member who worked as an FBI informant, is accused of stabbing Chauvin on November 24 in the Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) Tucson law library. 

Despite suffering severe wounds, Chauvin is anticipated to live.

Turscak informed FBI agents that he had contemplated assaulting Chauvin, referred to as “D.C.” in court records, over the past month. 

The motive cited was Chauvin’s high-profile status as an inmate. Chauvin is currently serving a 21-year federal prison sentence at FCI Tucson for violating George Floyd’s constitutional rights. 

This violation occurred during the 2020 incident where Chauvin knelt on Floyd’s neck for at least nine minutes, leading to Floyd’s death. 

Additionally, Chauvin was separately convicted of murder in state court and sentenced to 22.5 years.
