ST. Paul, Minn. – The jurors reached the verdict after about 13 hours deliberating whether three former Minneapolis police officers violated George Floyd’s constitutional rights by not intervening to help him when he begged for air while Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck.
The verdict will soon be read in the courtroom of the federal court in St. Paul, Minn., Where three former officers – Tou Thao, 36 years old; J. Alexander Kueng, 28 years old; and Thomas Lane, 38 – have been on trial since January for their actions on May 25, 2020.
Mr. Kueng and Mr. Lane helped Mr. Floyd down, and Mr. Thao prevented a group of bystanders involved. All three officers were charged with failing to provide medical aid to Mr. Floyd, while Mr. Kueng and Mr. Thao were also accused of failing to intervene to stop Mr. Chauvin.
