In the recent trial of former officer Derek Chauvin, today he was found guilty on all charges. Those charges include:
- Murder in the Second Degree (Murder 2)
- Murder in the Third Degree (Murder 3)
- Manslaughter in the Second Degree (Manslaughter 2)
Now here's my question: One person died. Three charges, all called "Murder" or "Manslaughter". Defendant found guilty on all. How can someone be guilty of 3 different charges for killing someone when only 1 person died, without violating double jeopardy rules (that you can't be charged more than once for the same crime)?
