Here’s what Derek Chauvin wrote on his hand ahead of murder conviction


Derek Chauvin jotted down his lawyer’s phone number on his hand ahead of his Tuesday conviction for killing George Floyd, a new report said.

Chauvin’s lawyer, Eric Nelson, confirmed with TMZ that his client wrote down the number in anticipation of having his bail revoked — which it was — following the guilty verdicts on all charges.

In a photograph showing Chauvin being escorted in handcuffs by an officer after the ruling, writing can be seen on the former cop’s left palm.

Chauvin faces a maximum of 40 years in prison for the May 2020 death of Floyd. He was convicted of second-degree murder, third degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.

The ex-cop knelt on Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes during an arrest on a Minneapolis street.

Chauvin will face sentencing in 8 weeks. Experts said he’ll likely be held in protective custody or potentially even serve time out of state.
