So what will happen to Chauvin now?

The sentence will be issued within 8 weeks

Judge Peter Cahill said Tuesday that it will be another eight weeks before Derek Chauvin is sentenced.

And although the ex-police officer had bail since October, Cahill reversed it after the verdict, so he will now await the sentence in jail.

Chauvin would appeal for the speed of his case, according to a lawyer 0:35

The maximum sentence for unintentional homicide in the commission of a felony is up to 40 years in prison.

The maximum sentence for unintentional manslaughter with disregard for life is up to 25 years in prison, and the maximum sentence for accidental manslaughter is up to 10 years or $ 20,000.

The judge will consider these factors

Cahill will consider factors such as Floyd's murder in front of a minor, and the power dynamics between police officers and civilians, to determine Chauvin's sentence.
