Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “Judge in Derek Chauvin trial built reputation as a no-nonsense justice”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The judge who oversaw Derek Chauvin's murder trial is known for his decisive and direct style, which he built through years of service as both a public defender and a prosecutor. 

Minnesota cop Chauvin was found guilty on Tuesday on all three charges - second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter - in the death of George Floyd. He now faces up to 40 years behind bars.

Cahill graduated from the University of Minnesota Law School in 1984 before starting his career in the Hennepin County Public Defender's Office. 

He served there for three years before joining the private firm of renowned defense attorney Michael Colich, where he worked from 1987 to 1993.
