Derek Chauvin is Guilty on All Counts

Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was taken out of the courtroom in handcuffs yesterday after a jury found him guilty on all three counts.

After kneeling on George Floyd’s neck, killing him, Chauvin was charged with second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter.

The most serious charge, second-degree unintentional murder, carries a maximum sentence of 40 years in prison. Chauvin faces 75 years in prison as he's found guilty on all three charges.

The judge ordered Chauvin be taken into custody until a sentencing hearing in approximately eight weeks.

Outside the courthouse in Minneapolis, there were cheers and chants of "All three counts" from the crowd as the verdicts were read.
