On Friday, April 20, 2018, one contested hearing took place in the 100th Judicial District Court in Memphis, Texas.
Luke Inman, the District Attorney for the 100th Judicial District, with Assistant District Attorney Harley Caudle, prosecuted the case for the State of Texas, with the Honorable Judge Stuart Messer presiding.
1. Joe Wayne Williams pleaded not true to the allegations listed in the State’s Motion to Revoke Defendant’s Community Supervision and a contested hearing was heard by Messer.
After all the evidence was produced by both parties, Williams was sentenced for the third degree felony offense of assault family violence by strangulation and sentenced to two years in the Institutional Division of Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ).
Williams, 54 from Estelline, was arrested in Hall County by Deputy Chris Palmitier for the offense that took place on Feb. 16, 2016.
Williams was originally placed on community supervision on Nov. 17, 2016, when he was placed on probation for two years. The State filed its motion to revoke on June 26, 2017, alleging four violations of community supervision.
Williams is also required to pay a $2,000 fine and $381 in court costs.
