So, what happens to Chauvin now?
Sentencing will be in 8 weeks
The maximum sentence for second-degree unintentional murder is up to 40 years in prison. The maximum sentence for third-degree murder is up to 25 years in prison, and the maximum sentence for second-degree manslaughter is up to 10 years and/or $20,000.
The judge will consider these factors
Cahill will consider factors such as Floyd’s murder taking place in front of a child, and the power dynamic between the officers and civilians, in determining Chauvin’s sentence.
