Publish date:

The former Minneapolis police officer charged with killing George Floyd had his unconditional bail set at $1.25 million on Monday, court records show.

Derek Chauvin, 44, of Oakdale, made his first court appearance Monday, with the Star Tribune noting he appeared via video feed while handcuffed and wearing an orange jumpsuit while sitting at a conference room table.

Chauvin is charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in Floyd's May 25 death. 

His bail, with conditions, was set at $1 million. Conditions include not working in security or law enforcement, not having contact with Floyd's family, surrendering all firearms and permits and not leaving Minnesota, court documents state.

Monday's hearing was short, lasting all of 15 minutes, and Chauvin did not enter a plea, the Star Tribune said. His next court appearance is scheduled for June 29.

Chauvin is currently being housed at the Oak Park Heights state prison, according to Minnesota Department of Corrections records.

Also on Monday, Chauvin's attorney filed a request for disclosure, seeking things like videos, statements, and other pieces of evidence from the prosecution.

Meanwhile, bail for the three other officers – J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao – charged as accomplices in Floyd's death was set at $1 million or $750,000 with conditions, last week.
