BREAKING: Derek Chauvin Guilty On All Counts

The verdict is in.

Derek Chauvin has been found guilty of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter.

Chauvin faces 12.5 years or 150 months in prison under the sentencing guidelines for a first-time offender; however, if it is decided that certain aggravating factors existed, the judge could impose a sentence up to the statutory maximum of 40 years.

Aggravating factors include committing a crime in front of a child and using police authority to commit a crime.

Under Minnesota’s determinate sentencing laws, with good behavior, defendants can expect to serve two-thirds of their penalty in prison and the rest on supervised release, or parole.

Sentencing will occur in eight weeks.
