George Floyd was previously sentenced to jail in some of the cases that represented his prior criminal records.
According to some of the media reports, the court records had depicted that George Floyd was first arrested in Harris County in 1997 when he was charged with selling less than a gram of drugs.
In 2004, former Houston police officer Gerald Goines had arrested Floyd after he had found a small amount of crack cocaine from Floyd. He was pleaded guilty and had received a 10-month state jail sentence, according to court records.
However, the Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg had been reinvestigating the irregularities in the 2004 arresting story of Floyd.
In August 2007, Floyd was arrested and charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon. Investigators said he and five other men barged into a woman’s apartment, and Floyd pushed a pistol into her abdomen before searching for items to steal. Floyd pleaded guilty in 2009 and was sentenced to five years in prison. He is later believed to have entered a plea deal and eventually got released in 2013.
