Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer charged with murder in the death of George Floyd, has been released from prison after posting $1 million bond.

The 44-year-old police officer (Derk Chauvin) is charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter in George Floyd’s death after he was captured in a video with his knee on Floyd’s neck for over nine minutes.

Three other former MPD officers, Tou Thao, Thomas Lane, and J. Alexander Kueng are also charged with aiding and abetting in the death, which made alot of protesters come out to protest on black lives matter.

On Wednesday, A spokesperson from the Minnesota Department of Corrections confirmed that Derek Chauvin was no longer being held at the maximum-security Oak Park Heights prison in Minnesota, and state court records show he posted a non-cash $1 million bond on Oct. 7, signed by A-Affordable Bail Bonds of Brainerd, Minnesota.

A notice of release was posted at 10:34 a.m. on Wednesday Oct 7

The $1 million conditional bail requires Chauvin to appear for all future court appearances, not to work in a security capacity, and to have no firearms or firearms permit. It also bars him from leaving the state and from having any contact with Floyd's family.
