Derek Chauvin’s Mother Breaks Silence on His Prison Stabbing



The family of disgraced former police officer Derek Chauvin claimed they were kept in the dark about the details of his prison stabbing that required employees to perform “life-saving measures.”

Chauvin’s mother, Carolyn Pawlenty, found out her son was “seriously injured” in a stabbing through the media and was not contacted by any officials on his condition, according to Alpha News on Saturday afternoon.

“How the hell do these news agencies know and his own mother doesn’t even know? And that [prison] has an emergency contact number [for me],” Pawlenty told the outlet.

Pawlenty explained she’s “worried and scared” about her son’s condition.

“I can’t even think what to say. I haven’t been to bed and made a path in my kitchen and living room floor by pacing,” Pawlenty said.

Chauvin’s attorney, Bill Mohrman, said that he has tried to contact the Bureau of Prisons on behalf of his client’s family to find out more about the stabbing but has yet to hear back from the agency.

“We have attempted to contact the Bureau of Prisons regarding the media reports regarding Mr. Chauvin and we have not heard back,” Mohrman told the outlet.

Gregory M. Erickson, another of Chauvin’s attorneys, called out the prison for its lack of transparency.

“It appears to be indicative of a poorly run facility and indicates how Derek’s assault was allowed to happen,” Erickson said in a statement on Saturday.

“How the family members who are in charge of Derek’s decisions regarding his personal medical care and his emergency contact were not informed after his stabbing further indicates the institution’s poor procedures and lack of institutional control,” the lawyer said of the prison.

Prison employees had to perform “life-saving measures” before Chauvin was hospitalized, The Bureau of Prisons said.

The federal agency shared that his attacker was also taken to the hospital, but they have yet to be identified.

Chauvin has since been listed in “stable” condition.
