Derek Chauvin

A 12-person jury has reached a verdict in the murder trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who is charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter for the death of George Floyd on May 25, 2020 in south Minneapolis. 

The jury's verdict is scheduled to be read Tuesday between 3:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. You can watch the verdict announcement in the video below. 

Judge Peter Cahill instructed the jury to consider each charge and verdict separately. 

The jury's verdict comes after four hours of deliberation on Monday and an estimated six more hours Tuesday. In 2017, the second-degree manslaughter charge against a former St. Anthony police officer for fatally shooting Philando Castile saw the jury deliberate for approximately 27 hours before acquitting Jeronimo Yanez of the crime. 

If found guilty sentencing will take place at a later date. Chauvin has agreed to allow Judge Cahill to consider the prosecution's request for an aggravated sentence in the event that he is found guilty. 

According to the Minnesota sentencing guidelines, the presumptive sentence for murder in the third degree and unintentional second-degree could fall anywhere between 10 years and eight months to 15 years for Chauvin, who has no criminal record.  

But if aggravating factors are found by the judge, the maximum sentence for the second-degree murder charge would be 40 years, and 25 years for third-degree murder. An aggravated conviction of second-degree manslaughter could carry a 10-year term.
