Since gaining notoriety for suffocating George Floyd under his knee, now-ex #police officer Derek Chauvin’s other wrongdoings have become public.
Between 2014 and 2019, the #Chauvins failed to report $464,433 of joint income, which means they avoided $21,853 in #taxes. With interest plus late filing and #fraud penalties, they owe $37,868. County Attorney Pete Orput said an investigation into the Chauvins had been ‘well in the works’ prior to the officer’s #firing.
A large portion of the #unreported earnings seems to have come from Chauvin’s off-duty shifts in private security nearly every weekend. Kellie Chauvin, aka Kellie Xiong, worked as a real estate agent and ran a photography business. She told investigators the tax returns just ‘got away’ from her. Xiong filed for divorce shortly after her husband was fired from Oakdale PD.
Derek Chauvin, 46, is still behind bars on charges of second-degree murder and #manslaughter.
