Where Is Derek Chauvin Now? See Inside Oak Park Heights Prison

Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was transferred to the Minnesota Correctional Facility - Oak Park Heights after being found guilty on all three charges against him over the death of George Floyd.

Floyd, who is Black, was killed when Chauvin, who is white, knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes in Minneapolis on May 25, last year. It followed Floyd being apprehended on suspicion of passing a counterfeit $20 bill at a store.

Chauvin and the other three officers involved in the arrest were subsequently fired by the Minneapolis Police Department and Chauvin was charged with counts of second- and third-degree murder and manslaughter.

His trial began on March 29 and on Tuesday, after about 10 hours of deliberation, the jury returned a guilty verdict on all three counts.

Chauvin was remanded into custody once the verdict was read and had his bail revoked, before being led out of the courtroom handcuffed.

He was subsequently taken to the Minnesota Correctional Facility - Oak Park Heights, where he arrived at 4:55 p.m. CT (5:55 p.m. ET), as per Minnesota Department of Corrections spokeswoman Sarah Fitzgerald.

Speaking to CNN, Fitzgerald added that a new booking photo of Chauvin would be made available Wednesday.

Located approximately 25 miles east of downtown Minneapolis, the correctional facility is a Level 5 maximum-security state prison—the highest custody level in the Minnesota Department of Corrections system—for male inmates.

The facility can house up to 473 inmates and since it was first opened in 1982, it has recorded one homicide and no escapes, making it one of the safest and most secure prisons in the country.

The prison sits on a 160-acre site and features a large courtyard and baseball field in the center. Each cell measures 7 by 10 feet and contains a bed and a table, along with a toilet and a sink.

The latter two are made out of steel, to prevent them from potentially being broken and used either as a tool to escape or as weapons.

The facility featured in a TV documentary as part of Discovery Channel's On the Inside TV series and was the focus of one of the episodes of National Geographic Channel's America's Hardest Prison series.

Chauvin will be sentenced in approximately eight weeks. The combined maximum prison sentence for all three counts equals a total of 75 years, although under current sentencing guidelines the three are likely to run concurrently—meaning a 40-year maximum.

President Joe Biden has welcomed the verdict, saying he hoped it could usher in significant change in the U.S.

"It was a murder in full light of day, and it ripped the blinders off for the whole world to see," Biden said. "For so many, it feels like it took all of that for the judicial system to deliver just basic accountability."
