The judge who presided over Derek Chauvin’s murder trial has ordered that the names of the jurors who handed down multiple guilty verdicts against the former Minneapolis police officer remain secret for the next several months.

As reported by The Hill on Friday, court documents show Hennepin County Judge Peter Cahill's order. He said jurors' identities must be sealed for at least six months. In making his determination, Cahill reportedly cited concerns over possible unwanted publicity or harassment.

The order covers multiple elements, said The Hill. It'll keep sealed a list of the jury members who found Chauvin guilty of all three counts he faced, as well as their profiles and questionnaires, and the identities of alternate jurors.

The 12-member jury on Tuesday convicted Chauvin of second- and third-degree murder, as well as second-degree manslaughter in the death of George Floyd.

Chauvin is to be sentenced on June 16, it was reported by multiple outlets on Friday.

One alternate juror has come forward to comment on the trial. That alternate, ID'd as Lisa Christensen, spoke with NBC’s Minneapolis affiliate this week and said she thought the prosecution proved Chauvin’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
