Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was released from prison Wednesday morning after posting bail. 

According to court records, Chauvin paid $100,000 to “purchase the bond which is posted to cover the bail,” attorney Nathan Hansen explained. 

“The bonding company promises to pay $1 million if he fails to appear. Chauvin does not get the $100k back. That is the fee,” he said on Twitter.

The unconditional bond was set at $1.25 million and the conditional bond was set at $1 million. Chauvin was released on a conditional bond, which requires him to stay in Minnesota and remain law-abiding. The document was signed by A-Affordable Bail Bonds out of Brainerd, Minnesota. A law enforcement notice of release was posted shortly after Chauvin made bail. 

WCCO reported that Chauvin was transferred from a maximum security prison in Oak Park Heights to Hennepin County Jail shortly before 10:00 a.m. Wednesday morning. A Department of Corrections spokesperson confirmed with Fox 9 that he was then released from jail.
