Derek Chauvin, The Officer Charged In George Floyd’s Death, Has Been Released From Prison

After posting $1 million bond, Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer charged with murder in the death of George Floyd, has been released from prison

The 44-year-old is charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter in Floyd’s death after he was captured in a video with his knee on Floyd’s neck for over nine minutes

Three other former MPD officers, Tou Thao, Thomas Lane, and J. Alexander Kueng are also charged with aiding and abetting in the death, which sparked off protests globally.

A spokesperson from the Minnesota Department of Corrections confirmed that Chauvin was no longer being held at the maximum-security Oak Park Heights prison in Minnesota on Wednesday, and state court records show he posted a non-cash $1 million bond on Oct. 7, signed by A-Affordable Bail Bonds of Brainerd, Minnesota.

A notice of release was posted at 10:34 a.m. on Oct. 7.

The $1 million conditional bail requires Chauvin to appear for all future court appearances, not to work in a security capacity, and to have no firearms or firearms permit. It also bars him from leaving the state and from having any contact with Floyd’s family.

Chauvin’s trial including other officers is set for March 8, 2021. The judge in the case, Peter Cahill, is expected to make a decision about whether the trial will be moved out of Hennepin County by Oct. 15.
