Derek Chauvin is waiting to find out what his sentence will be. 

On Friday afternoon, a judge will sentence the former Minneapolis police officer who murdered George Floyd. 

Chauvin was convicted on three charges in April. The most serious was second-degree unintentional murder. That crime carries a potential 40-year prison sentence. 

Though, experts doubt Chauvin will even get that much.
