George Floyd was murdered by police on May 25, 2020. And today, ten months later, the murder trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin begins.
Chauvin, the white police officer who pinned his knee against Floyd’s neck for nearly ten minutes, is being charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. Chauvin and three other police officers were fired a day after Floyd’s death, and the remaining three officers will be tried in August for aiding and abetting second-degree murder and manslaughter. If Chauvin is convicted of second-degree murder, the most serious charge, he could potentially face 10 to 15 years in prison.
