The Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles says George Floyd's 2004 drug conviction will stand.
Back in 2004, Floyd was convicted of drug possession after giving $10 worth of crack cocaine to another suspect. Floyd pled guilty and spent 10 months in jail.
The suspect in the drug transaction was not arrested due to an "attempt to further the narcotic trafficking in this area," according to Murjani Rawls of The Root.

Per The Blaze:
According to reports, Goines fabricated one such informant to secure a warrant against Dennis Tuttle, 59, and his wife, Rhogena Nicholas, 58, for allegedly selling heroin out of their Houston home in 2019. Police then conducted a no-knock raid against the married couple, who were shot and killed by police during the incident.
At first, police reported that one of the two had fired on police, prompting a return use of force. However, later reports suggested that law enforcement had initiated gun fire as police first fired on the family dog. Several officers were shot and wounded in the incident. One of them remains permanently paralyzed as a result.
