Thomas Lane, one of the four fired cops involved in the death of George Floyd, has returned to his family after posting $750,000 bond.
According to the reports, the 37-year-old, who has been charged with aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter and aiding and abetting second-degree murder, was held at Hennepin County Jail in lieu of $750,000 bail.
After being released from the county jail, Lane has allegedly returned to his wife and is now awaiting his next court appearance which is set to take place on June 29.
The former cop’s return to his wife was confirmed by his lawyer, Earl Gray, who refused to provide details of the location due to safety concerns.
As Gray explained, they are planning on filing a motion to have all charges against Lane dismissed.
“Now we can watch what happens next from outside. We will bring a motion to dismiss and hopefully it will be granted,” Gray said according to Star Tribune.
Days before the 37-year-old’s release, a fundraiser in his name was spotted whereas the website was created with the intent to raise donations for the Lane family’s defense fund. While the legitimacy of the site was confirmed by Gray, the attorney said he didn’t know how much money had been raised.
Since Lane’s release after posting bail, the site has been taken down.
As Gray previously insisted, the case against Lane is “weak.” The attorney also claimed that his client asked Derek Chauvin, the former officer charged with second-degree murder of Floyd, if the man should be moved when he was saying he couldn’t breathe during the arrest.
