Alleged George Floyd Murderer Derek Chauvin Released from Prison on $1M Bond
Derek chauvin – the former Minneapolis policeman accused of killing George floyd – is a free man for now … he has just been released from behind bars pending trial.
Chauvin was released from Oak Park Heights jail in Minnesota on Wednesday after court records showed he issued a million-dollar non-monetary 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 detention. As we reported, the other 3 – Alexander Keung, Thomas lane and Tou Thao – were released some time ago and are all looking for a change of location before their trials.
Chauvin faces the most serious charges in the group – he was called for 2nd degree murder, 3rd degree murder and 2nd degree manslaughter afterwards 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 that Floyd’s alleged drug use was what led to his demise, not the excessive force of Chauvin’s knee on his neck.
