Jury finds Derek Chauvin guilty on all counts

Derek Chauvin, the ex-police officer who infamously placed his knee onto the neck of George Floyd last May for 9 minutes and 29 seconds, was found guilty of murder on Tuesday.

The charges were second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.

After 11 days of trial, 45 witnesses, and two days of deliberations, the jury determined that Chauvin’s use of force was NOT justified during Floyd’s restraint.

George Floyd’s family hoped for a guilty verdict, with the aim to set precedent and accountability for police violence against Black people in America.
