As Jury Deliberations In Derek Chauvin Trial Continue, A Look At Charges And Evidence

A dozen jurors — seven women and five men, half identifying as Black or mixed race — are deliberating the charges against Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer charged in the killing of George Floyd.

Host Peter O’Dowd talks to Georgetown Law Professor Tiffany Jeffers about the charges and the evidence.
