Darron Cummings/AP Darron Cummings/AP Prosecutors have recommended probation in a plea deal for Jamarcus Glover, the man whose drug dealing led Louisville police to the home of Breonna Taylor in March 2020. According to court documents obtained by NPR, Glover entered guilty pleas last week. Prosecutors have agreed to drop most of the charges he faced and are recommending up to 8 years of probation. The circumstances of Taylor's death — killed by police late at night in her own home as they arrived to execute a search warrant for an ex-boyfriend's crimes — helped fuel a nationwide movement calling for racial justice and an end to police brutality and led to moderate reforms of the Louisville police department.
