The verdict aired live across multiple networks, including NBC News.

And the maximum sentence for Second Degree Manslaughter is 10 years and/or $20,000. The jury reached its verdict Tuesday after deliberating about 10 hours over two days. The courthouse was surrounded by barriers and razor wire, and thousands of National Guard troops and law enforcement officers were brought in, as the city of Minneapolis and the country awaited the verdict.

Floyd died last May after Chauvin, a white officer, pinned his knee on or close to the 46-year-old Black man's neck for about 9 and 1/2 minutes.
