Ogg: Case involving George Floyd was among Goines cases being reviewed by prosecutors
HOUSTON – A 16-year-old drug case involving George Floyd was among the hundreds of cases connected to ex-Houston police Officer Gerald Goines that are being reviewed by prosecutors, according to Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg. Cases involving Goines were questioned after he was charged with murder and tampering with a government record in connection with the 2019 raid on a Harding Street home that ended with officers shooting and killing Dennis Tuttle and Rhogena Nicholas. County prosecutors have said they anticipate having to clear more than 100 cases involving Goines. Ogg said Floyd’s case was among the cases that prosecutors were working to clear. Floyd’s case is also among the 14,000 cases involving the Houston Police Department’s narcotics division that are also being reviewed, Ogg said.
