Results: Felony Jury Trials William B. Mange has Tried

For cases numbered 1 through 67, you have the full cause number and the Defendant’s full name. For those cases, you can look up the Court’s file and verify for yourself that what is written here is accurate. For cases numbered 68 through 82, to protect my client’s anonymity, I have given my client’s initials and only part of the cause number. You can verify what I say by looking in the Travis County District Clerk’s Office, unless otherwise noted. All cases are felony jury trials, unless otherwise noted.

Results noted here do not guarantee results in other cases. The outcome of any individual case depends on the facts and law in that case.

    Results Favorable to Client?
    Nature of Case
  • C1CR 1_-_ _ 8_ _5
    Client DWR
    Judge Mueller
    Yes. Not guilty by verdict of the jury.
    Driving While Intoxicated, Class A Misdemeanor (because of how high blood test result was). Client pulled over for failing to signal intent to change lanes. Client did well on field sobriety tests, but made some unfortunate admissions. Client’s blood was drawn by warrant and was tested at .163, which is more than twice the "legal limit."
  • D1DC 1_-9_7_2_
    Client JR
    Judge Davis, sitting for Judge Denton.
    Yes. Hung jury. Client was never convicted of the felony with which he was charged.
    Assault family violence enhanced to a third degree felony by a prior conviction. Police took several photographs of the alleged victim’s bloody face and split lip. The State had witnesses who were not involved who testified that they saw the assault while it happened and that the alleged victim was not defending herself. The jury hung over the issue of self-defense.
  • C1CR-1_-2_0_5_
    GG
    Judge Carlos Barrera
    Yes. The result was a hung jury, three for the defense and three for the state.
    Driving while intoxicated with a blood-alcohol concentration of greater than or equal to 0.15. The client was pulled over for some swerving and for taking a low-speed turn at high speed. The video of the field sobriety tests had its challenges, though my client was always polite, respectful, and cooperative. The client agreed to blow and his breath test result was a .172. Ultimately the State chose not to try the case again, dismissed the driving while intoxicated charge, and my client agreed to accept a deferred adjudication probation to an obstruction of a passageway charge.
