Chauvin will not testifyClosing arguments are set for Monday in the murder trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin after he told the court he would not testify in his own defense

"I will invoke my Fifth Amendment privilege today," Chauvin said Thursday.

Chauvin, who has actively taken notes and participated in sidebars with his attorneys throughout the trial, smiled at one point when lead defense attorney Eric Nelson mentioned that they had "gone back and forth" about the issue of testifying many times. He is charged in the death of George Floyd in May.

He offered short, direct answers to each question from Nelson and Judge Peter Cahill. Chauvin is clean shaven – looking different than he did in the viral video from May 25, 2020.
