The former Minneapolis cop who was charged with murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd has been transferred to a maximum-security prison, according to a report.
Derek Chauvin — who was captured in video with his knee pinned into Floyd’s neck for almost nine minutes, was originally held at the Ramsey County Jail before being transferred Sunday afternoon to the Hennepin County Jail, KSTP reported.
He has since been sent to the Minnesota Correctional Facility — Oak Park Heights in Stillwater, the news outlet reported, citing the state Department of Corrections, reports The New York Post.
“Oak Park Heights is the highest custody level in the Minnesota DOC system. However, the majority of inmates housed here are maximum and close custody, as some of the inmates need a higher level of security,” according to the DOC.
DOC Commissioner Paul Schnell said in a news conference late Sunday that this kind of transfer is not uncommon, adding said the same thing happened when former Minneapolis cop Mohamed Noor was taken into custody in the killing of Justine Damond.
Hennepin County Sheriff David Hutchinson requested Chauvin’s transfer, Schnell said.
Chauvin, who has been fired along with three other cops, was charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter on Friday.
The three other former officers have not yet been charged in the case.
