The Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles has gone back on its initial decision to posthumously pardon the convict for a crack cocaine charge.
Floyd’s family submitted the request in 2021, claiming the arresting officer “manufactured the existence of confidential informants”, and the application was accepted last year.
However, decision-makers performed an about-face on Wednesday, but did not state a reason for the decision. The arresting officer’s attorney had previously stated: “We stand by the original case. His former conviction was a legitimate one”.

The rapid price inflation ‘raises serious questions,’ ethics experts said.
The purchase of the 6,500 square-foot, six-bedroom property in Studio City was first revealed on Monday by New York Magazine, amid growing questions about BLM’s finances.
