Derek Chauvin invokes 5th Amendment in court, tells judge he will not testify in his own defense

Chauvin, 45, told Judge Peter Cahill absent of the jury’s presence in the courtroom that he will invoke his Fifth Amendment right and will not testify. It was the first time Chauvin had spoken during his trial.

The former officer is charged with murder and manslaughter in the death of Floyd, a 46-year-old Black man who was confronted by police on May 25, 2020, after he was suspected of using a counterfeit $ 20 bill to buy cigarettes at nearby Cup Foods.

Chauvin attorney Eric Nelson rested his case Thursday morning.
