Judge Denies Motion to Delay Derek Chauvin Trial
On Friday, Judge Peter A. Cahill of Hennepin County District Court, who’s overseeing the trial of Derek Chauvin, the previous Minneapolis officer charged within the loss of life of George Floyd, denied the protection workforce’s request for a trial delay.
The objective of a change of venue is to make sure that the defendant has a good trial by an neutral jury. The similar is true of, as the idea for the protection’s newest movement to proceed with the hope that as time passes, folks overlook a few of the pretrial publicity. Unfortunately, I believe the pretrial publicity on this case will proceed regardless of how lengthy we proceed it. And so far as change of venue, I don’t assume that that will give the defendant any type of a good trial past what we’re doing right here as we speak. I don’t assume there’s anyplace within the state of Minnesota that has not been subjected to excessive quantities of publicity on this case.
