Jury Finds Chauvin “Guilty” in Death of George Floyd
On Wednesday, the jury returned a verdict of “guilty” for former Officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd.
Chauvin is found guilty of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
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.
