Jury begins 2nd day of deliberations in case of 3 ex-MPD officers
Jurors have reconvened and resumed deliberations in the case of three former Minneapolis police officers charged with violating George Floyd’s civil rights.
The jury gathered again at 9 a.m. Thursday to continue weighing the charges in the case.
Tou Thao, J. Alexander Kueng and Thomas Lane are all accused of seeing George Floyd lying on the ground, in clear need of medical care, and willfully failing to aid him. Thao and Kueng are also charged with failing to intervene to stop Derek Chauvin’s use of force.
The jury deliberated until 5 p.m. Wednesday after receiving the case just before 10 a.m.
Jurors didn’t ask Judge Paul Magnuson any questions on Wednesday.
As jurors deliberated, Magnuson also signed an order sealing juror questionnaires and other records for at least 10 years in an effort to protect their identities.
