(WFSB) -- The verdict came down Tuesday evening.

Guilty on all counts for the former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, answering for his actions that caused the death of George Floyd.

Shortly after the judge read the jury's findings, Minnesota’s Attorney General Keith Ellison spoke about the verdict and what is needed going forward.

“We need true justice that's not one case, that is a social transformation, that says nobody is beneath the law and no one is above it,” Ellison said.

Professor of law and sociology at Yale, Monica Bell, joins CT ’21 this weekend to talk about the case and the conviction, and its impact on the nation’s history.
