Derek Chauvin was found guilty of murdering George Floyd
Twelve jurors have reached an all-guilty verdict in the murder trial of Derek Chauvin, a White former Minneapolis, Minn. police officer, who murdered George Floyd, an unarmed Black man, in May of 2020.
On Tuesday afternoon (April 20), the news was revealed that Chauvin was found guilty of second-degree unintentional murder (up to 40 years in prison), third-degree murder (up to 25 years in prison) and second-degree manslaughter (up to 10 years in prison). It's also worth noting that the trial didn't have a hung jury, or a jury that is unable to reach a verdict after deliberation and fails to reach a unanimous or majority decision.
Judge Cahil revealed the verdict in front of the court. The jury found Chauvin guilty of murder and manslaughter in the killing of George Floyd. His bail was revoked and he will remain in custody until sentencing in eight weeks.
