MINNEAPOLIS, Mn. (WOWO): Former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin has been convicted on charges of 2nd and 3rd degree murder and 2nd degree manslaughter in the death of George Floyd.
The judge in the case read the verdict shortly after 4:00 CDT, then immediately began polling the jury.
Chauvin is the first of four officers charged to be tried and convicted and now faces sentencing.
It’s wrong to convict him .Floyd was a criminal and drug addict. I’m disappointed with the justice system in our country.shame on all of you
Prayers to he and his family… Sad to see a case tainted by public opinion and jurors swayed by fear for their own well being after the case.
