The defense rested its case on the murder trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin after calling seven witnesses over the course of two days. The defendant said he will not testify, invoking his Fifth Amendment right. We discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the defense’s case as well as what the prosecution's rebuttal may look like with civil trial attorney, Sean Roberts.
