The former Minneapolis Police officer who knelt on George Floyd’s neck for more than 9 minutes last year was found guilty Tuesday of all three charges against him.
Derek Chauvin, 45, was convicted of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. It took the jury a total of 2 days as they were deciding the outcome of the verdict. As he was wearing a mask inside the Hennepin County Courthouse in Minneapolis, Chauvin had no apparent reaction to the guilty verdict.
With his bail being revoked he would be placed in handcuffs.He would then be taken to a facility in Stillwater, Minnesota, about 25 miles east of downtown Minneapolis, officials said.
He faces up to about 65 years in jail.
