Ex-Minneapolis Officer Charged In George Floyd’s Death Released On Bail

Derek Chauvin, the ex-Minneapolis police officer charged in the death of George Floyd has been released on a $1million bail.

Derek Chauvin is charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and manslaughter. He was released from Oak Park Heights prison, where he was held since May 31, a Minnesota Department of Corrections spokesperson confirmed to Fox 9 Minneapolis.

The Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office posted a notice of release indicating Chauvin paid a $1 million bond and was required by law to show in court on March 8, 2021, at 9 a.m. A court document signed by A-Affordable Bail Bonds of Brainerd, Minn., also showed Chauvin paid the non-cash bond on Wednesday.

The other three officers at the scene, Thomas Lane, J. Kueng and Tou Thao, are charged with aiding and abetting. They previously posted bail amounts of $750,000 and have been freed pending trial. Currently, all four men are scheduled to face trial together in March, but the judge is looking into a request to have them tried separately.
