One of the highest-profile court cases in years has come to an end, with former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin found guilty on all counts in the death of George Floyd.
The jury delivered their verdict Tuesday afternoon after roughly 10 hours of deliberations. Chauvin was found guilty on all three counts – second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter.
After reading the verdicts, Judge Peter Cahill thanked the jurors “for not only jury service, but heavy-duty jury service”.
Sentencing for Chauvin has been scheduled for eight weeks from now. Columbia leaders continue to ask for calm and for the Midlands to serve as a positive model not only for the nation, but for our world.
