  • Chauvin was found guilty of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in April.

  • Floyd, a black man, died in May 2020 after Chauvin pinned him to the pavement with a knee on his neck for several minutes as Floyd pleaded “I can’t breathe.”

  • The case has sparked national outcry for a reexamination of systemic racism in the police force and led to multiple protests and unrest throughout the country.
