  • Description

    The charges and evidence supporting the conviction of Derek Chauvin, the former police officer charged in the killing of George Floyd evolved from manslaughter to murder. This case, wherein the police officer placed his knee on the victim’s neck, commanded national attention and was one of the events that spurred the Black Lives Matter movement.

    This CLE course will review the charges – third degree murder, second degree murder and second degree manslaughter and the evidence that created the continuum of charges. The course will also explain the charges made against Chauvin’s co-defendants and the criminal federal charges still pending.
