According to TMZ, Chauvin wrote down the number before the verdict was handed down and while waiting for his bail to be withdrawn.

Chauvin was found guilty of second degree murder, third degree murder and second degree manslaughter.

After being escorted from court, Chauvin was booked into Minnesota Correctional Facility-Oak Park Heights at around 4:55 PM on Tuesday.

Chauvin will likely remain in the facility until his sentencing in about two months. He faces up to 75 years in prison for the charges.

Chauvin, 45, was charged with killing Floyd by pressing his knee into the 46-year-old black man's neck for 9 minutes and 29 seconds while he was in handcuffs face down

Floyd, 46, died on May 25 after being arrested on suspicion of passing a bogus $ 20 bill for a pack of cigarettes at a corner market.

He panicked, pleaded claustrophobic, and struggled with the police when they tried to put him in a police car. Instead, they put him on the ground.

The center of the case was the excruciating bystander video of Floyd repeatedly gasping for breath: ‘I can’t breathe’ and onlookers shouting at Chauvin to stop when the officer pressed his knee on or close to Floyd’s neck, as the authorities saying was 9 1/2 minutes. Floyd slowly became quiet and limp.

After Floyd’s death, demonstrations and scattered violence erupted in Minneapolis, across the country and beyond. The furor also led to the removal of Confederate statues and other offensive symbols such as Aunt Jemima.

In the months that followed, many states and cities restricted police use of force, renewed disciplinary systems, or subjected police forces to tighter surveillance.

The ‘Blue Wall of Silence’ that often protects police accused of wrongdoing crumbled after Floyd’s death: the Minneapolis police chief was quick to call it ‘murder’ and fired all four officers, and the city reached a shocking settlement of $ 27 million with Floyd’s family as a jury selection was underway.

Police procedural experts and law enforcement veterans within and outside the Minneapolis department, including the chief, testified to the prosecution that Chauvin used excessive force and opposed his training.

Medical experts for the prosecution said Floyd died of asphyxiation, or lack of oxygen, because his breathing was limited by the way he was pressed to his stomach, his hands cuffed behind him, one knee in his neck, and his face to the ground printed. .
