Chauvin was convicted Tuesday on all counts against him: second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.

Chauvin is facing a maximum sentence for second-degree murder of 40 years in prison, but Minnesota sentencing guidelines suggest he’s more likely to receive up to 15 years, based on his lack of a prior criminal record.

He will also have an opportunity to appeal all of the convictions within 90 days.
