Nothing Is More Auditor-y Than the Concern One Derek Chauvin Trial Juror Had

As you probably have heard, the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin is underway, and a jury of 12 people (and two alternates) will decide if he is guilty of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd.

The USA Today last weekend ran small profiles of each of the 14 jurors, keeping their identities anonymous, but the publication did reveal each juror’s gender, occupation, race, and age range.

One of the jurors is a white man in his 30s who is a business auditor. Without knowing what he does for a living, you could probably guess that he was an auditor or an accountant right off the bat in the first sentence of his profile:

This juror said one concern about serving on the jury would be whether he could block out enough time from work for what’s estimated to be a four-week trial.

 

Yep, he’s definitely one of you guys.
