The former police officer facing multiple charges in the death of George Floyd has been released from jail on a $1 million no-cash bond.
As KMSP-TV reports, former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was released on a bond dated October 7, and signed by A-Affordable Bail Bonds of Brainerd, Minnesota.
Chauvin has been charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter after he was seen in a widely distributed video pressing his knee against the unarmed man’s neck the day George Floyd’s arrest for allegedly using counterfeit money at a supermarket led to his death.
Chauvin and three other officers at the scene were filed shortly after Floyd was killed, and those three officers are charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter.
All four officers are set to being trial in March 2021. It is not known at this time where Chavin will stay following his release.
