Texas Board Denies Posthumous Pardon For George Floyd The Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles has denied a posthumous pardon of George Floyd for a minor 2004 drug conviction.
The Board itself had recommended the pardon to Gov. Greg Abbott last October, but later rescinded it over a procedural error. On Thursday, the Board unanimously rejected the pardon. Floyd’s attorney can reapply for the pardon in two years.
