Derek Michael Chauvin is an American former police officer known for his involvement in the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on May 25, 2020.
Chauvin's televised murder trial began on March 8, 2021, with opening statements anticipated on March 29. The trial is expected to last approximately four weeks. He is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
Will Derek Chauvin be convicted of homicide by June 1 2021?
This question resolves in the affirmative if prior to June 1, 2021, Chauvin is convicted of any homicide charge (either murder or manslaughter) in the case of State of Minnesota v. Derek Chauvin. The question resolves negatively if he is not so convicted prior to June 1, 2021.
In the event that this question is still open at the time deliberations begin, this question is to close retroactively at the time and date that the jury are instructed to begin their deliberations; or, in the event that Chauvin enters a plea which results in him being convicted of a homicide charge in this case, this question closes retroactively 24 hours before that plea is entered.
