Ex-Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin – who was arrested for George Floyd’s death and charged with third-degree murder, second degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter – went before a judge today.
Derek Chauvin appeared in Hennepin County District Court, via video teleconference from jail, and the judge set his bail at $1.25 million.
Wearing an orange jail jumpsuit and a white t-shirt, Chauvin stated his name and address and answered questions from the judge … at which point he revealed he still has guns at his home.
The judge said Chauvin could post a lower bail amount of $1 million if he agreed to additional bail conditions, including no police or law enforcement work, no firearms and no contact with Floyd’s family.
Chain is facing 40 years behind bars — the maximum penalty for second-degree murder.
The three other former officers involved in Floyd’s death — J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao — are each charged with one count of aiding and abetting second-degree murder and aiding and one count of abetting second-degree manslaughter.
They made their first court appearance last week, where attorneys for Lane and Kueng tried to shift the blame to Chauvin.
A future court date for all four former officers is set for June 29.
