Denver DA Beth McCann Reacts to Derek Chauvin Guilty Verdict

DENVER—Upon hearing that a Minneapolis jury found former police officer Derek Chauvin guilty on all counts of the murder of George Floyd, Denver District Attorney Beth McCann issued the following statement.

“The murder of George Floyd affected our entire nation and his death galvanized many in Denver to take to the streets and demand changes to policing and an end to systemic injustices that are rooted in racism. Justice was served today, but there is still more work to do. My office recently released a study on race and justice and we are now working with the community and other stakeholders to ensure we are upholding our mission of seeking fair and equal justice for all.”
