HOUSTON (AP) — Prosecutors say they expect to dismiss at least 91 more drug convictions tied to an indicted former Houston police officer whose cases are being reviewed following a deadly drug raid. Thursday’s announcement comes after the Harris County District Attorney’s Office had said in February it would dismiss 73 cases connected to ex-officer Gerald Goines. His work with the Houston Police Department’s narcotics unit has come under scrutiny following the January 2019 drug raid in which 59-year-old Dennis Tuttle and his wife, 58-year-old Rhogena Nicholas, were killed. Nicole DeBorde, Goines’ attorney, is accusing Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg of using the ex-officer’s case for political gain.
