Judge lets ex-cop charged in Floyd's death live out of state
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A judge in Minnesota cited safety concerns when he issued new release terms for a former Minneapolis police officer charged with the death of George Floyd and which would allow him to live in a neighboring state while on the Process is waiting.
Derek Chauvin posted $ 1 million on bail Wednesday and was released from the Maximum Security State Prison, where he had been held for his safety since shortly after his arrest. Floyd died after the white chauvin pressed his knee against Floyd's neck for a few minutes, even after the handcuffed black man asked for air before his death on May 25. Chauvin was later charged with accidental second-degree, third-degree, and second-degree murder-degree manslaughter.
Chauvin's release sparked two night protests in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Governor Tim Walz mobilized National Guard troops and police officers to help keep the peace. Three other dismissed former officials, also charged in the case, were previously released on bail. Your trial is scheduled for March.
Hennepin District Judge Peter Cahill said in an order released Friday but dated Thursday that the State Department of Corrections, which is overseeing Chauvin during his release, presented evidence in private "supportive security concerns". The order did not say what that evidence was.
Chauvin's previous terms prohibited him from leaving Minnesota without court permission and ordered him to sign extradition waivers in the event that he was released. Under the new conditions, he must "establish a residence in the state of Minnesota or an adjacent state as soon as possible" and report this to his inspector. His address will be given to local law enforcement agencies, but anyone given his address will be instructed to keep it confidential.
The former officer must also carry a cell phone with him and keep it charged and within easy reach so that the corrections department can reach him at any time. He must also hand in his passport.
Cahill's order stated that the defense and prosecutors had agreed to the new terms.
