Bail for cop charged with Floyd murder upped to $1.25 mln

The bail for Derek Chauvin, the police officer accused of murdering George Floyd, had his bail raised to $1.25 million on Monday (June 8).

Gavino Garay has more.


The bail for Derek Chauvin, the white Minneapolis police officer accused murdering African-American George Floyd two weeks ago, was been raised by $250,000 to $1.25 million on Monday.

Chauvin made his first court appearance remotely via closed-circuit television wearing an orange jumpsuit and a face mask.

He is accused of 2nd degree murder in the May 25 death of Floyd in Minneapolis by kneeling on Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes.

Minnesota Assistant Attorney General Matthew Frank argued that the "severity of the charges" as well as the strength of public opinion made it more likely that Chauvin would flee if set free, Minnesota’s Star Tribune reported.

Omar Failing In Money Race

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is in a tough fight for re-election in her Minnesota district. Antone Melton-Meaux is challenging Omar in an August primary race. Melton-Meaux has raised seven times more than Omar in the last fundraising cycle. The Washington Examiner says Melton-Meaux raised $3.2 million between March and April. Melton-Meaux reported having $2 million in cash on hand to keep him afloat ahead of the Aug. 11 primary. Omar did not fare as well as her competitor when it came to fundraising. Omar raised just $471,624 in the same time frame, roughly one-seventh of Melton-Meaux's haul. The congresswoman's campaign told the Star Tribune that she has $1.1 million in cash on hand.
