MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- The Minneapolis police officer charged with second-degree murder in George Floyd’s death made his first court appearance Monday. The judge set Derek Chauvin’s unconditional bail at $1.25 million, or $1 million with conditions.
The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports the conditions include: that Chauvin remain law abiding, that he not have any contact with Floyd’s family, that he not work in law enforcement or security, that he surrender any firearms and licenses to carry, that he remains in Minnesota under court supervision, and that he sign a waiver of extradition upon his release.
Chauvin did not enter a plea at the hearing. His next court appearance was set for 1:30 p.m. June 29.
Derek Chauvin, 44, said almost nothing during an 11-minute hearing in which he appeared before Hennepin County Judge Denise Reilly on closed-circuit television from the state’s maximum security prison in Oak Park Heights. His attorney, Eric Nelson, did not contest the bail -- raised from the $500,000 initially set in the case -- and didn’t address the substance of the charges, which also include third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
