A man who claims he tried to help save George Floyd’s life is out on bond, according to court documents.
Thomas Lane, the rookie ex-cop charged in George Floyd’s murder case posted his $750k bond Wednesday, according to TMZ.
Lane was conditionally released Wednesday, and his attorney, Earl Gray said his client’s release is “pretty good news”.
Gray did not comment on how Lane raised the funds to bond out but we do know that Lane’s family set up a website seeking donations to raise money for his legal defense.
Lane and 2 other ex-cops were arrested and charged with aiding and abetting 2nd-degree murder and aiding and abetting 2nd-degree manslaughter in Floyd’s death.
If Lane is convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of up to 40 years in prison. His attorney claims he did everything he could to help George Floyd…
