The police officer who murdered George Floyd, Derek Chauvin will have his court trial start in 2021.
Derek Chauvin was the key cop in the murder of the late Goerge Floyd. He was filmed pressing his knee on the neck of the Black American and showed no mercy even though George was screaming ‘I can’t breath’.
The legal team handling his case headed by Judge Peter Cahill set a date of March 8th for the trial of officer Derek Chauvin.
The location of the trial is said to be “determined at a later date.”
Though court docs show all defendants are scheduled to appear in court on that day, whether or not they’ll be tried together or separately will also be “determined at a later date.”
Also according to documents, the questionnaire for the jury is expected by November 1st, 2020, in order to proceed with juror selection.
Derek Chauvin is on trial for second-degree murder. His counterparts—Thao, Kueng, and Lane will be tried for aiding and abetting second-degree murder.
Protesters are hoping justice prevails in George Floyd’s case.
