A court judge in Minneapolis already set Derek Chauvin’s bail at USD 1.25 million.
A Minneapolis court judge on Monday (US time) already set Derek Chauvin’s bail at either a USD 1.25-million unconditional bail or a USD 1-million bail with conditions.
This, after Derek Chauvin, a former Minneapolis police officer who pressed his knee on the neck of George Floyd for over eight minutes, appeared virtually in a Minneapolis court for the first time.
Minneapolis Court Judge Jeannice Reding granted the prosecutor’s motion to set a USD 1-million bail with conditions or an unconditional bail at USD 1.25 million.
The said conditions include making future appearances, surrendering his fire arms or ammunition and any fire arm permit, being law-abiding, not to leave the Minnesota, not working in a law enforcement capacity or in a security, and no contact with the family of George Floyd.
With these conditions, the defense didn’t object to the prosecutor’s bail proposal.
In a report on CNN, Derek Chauvin was charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter and was arrested last May. The said hearing began at 1:45 in the afternoon (US time) and was held in a courtroom in the Public Safety Facility which was located across the street from the City Hall and Police Headquarters in downtown Minneapolis.
