George Floyd was not among those pardoned by Texas Governor Greg Abbott

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) – Governor Greg Abbott pardoned and restored the civil rights of eight Texans recommended by the Texas Parole and Amnesty Commission.

The arrest was made by former HPD officer Gerald Goines, who is now facing charges in connection with the Harding Street drug bust.

In Thursday’s announcement about those pardoned, the clemency recommendation for Floyd was withdrawn, according to Governor Renae Eze’s press secretary.

“Among the recommendations to be withdrawn was one concerning Floyd. The board will review and address procedural errors and issues related to any pending applications under the rule. theirs,” Eze said. “Due to the Council’s withdrawal of its recommendation regarding George Floyd, Governor Abbott was not given the opportunity to consider it. Governor Abbott will consider all recommendations submitted by the Board for consideration.”
