The former Minneapolis police officer accused of killing George Floyd, Derek Chauvin is a free man for now as he just got released from behind bars as he awaits trial.
Derek Chauvin was released on Wednesday from the Oak Park Heights prison in Minnesota after court records show he posted a non-cash $1 million bond backed by a place called A-Affordable Bail Bonds. His trial is currently scheduled for March.
Chauvin was the last of the 4 accused cops still in custody. As reported earlier, the other 3 — Alexander Keung, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao — were released some time ago, and are all seeking a change of venue ahead of their trials.
Chauvin faces the most severe charges out of the group — he’s been rung up for 2nd-degree murder, 3rd-degree murder and 2nd-degree manslaughter after leaving his knee on Floyd’s neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds.
Chauvin recently asked a judge to dismiss the murder charges entirely … arguing Floyd’s alleged drug use is what led to his demise, and not the excessive force of Chauvin’s knee on the neck.
