They are facing charges of aiding and abetting second-degree murder and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter.

On May 25, 2020, a video captured the 45-year-old Chauvin kneeling on Floyd's neck, while he was in a prone position, for more than 9 minutes even while Floyd insisted numerous times that he could not breathe.

"I hope that Derek Chauvin gets the longest time in jail so he can contemplate the ugliness that he portrayed and the suffering he committed on the world", she said.

"We don't need to apply brutal force at everything we do and we need to just be a little more compassionate in policing and interaction and I think we all need to learn from this in how we interact with the police force and how the police force interacts with us and how we can tone this down". "But to know GUILTY ON ALL 3 CHARGES!"

Cahill said he expected those proceedings, which would determine the exact length of Chauvin's prison sentence, to begin in mid-June. Chauvin was led away in handcuffs and will await sentencing that could get him a maximum of 40 years in prison, in what is a rare instance of an on-duty white policeman being held accountable for the killing of a Black person in America.
