Brazos County District Court Jury Renders A Not Guilty Verdict On A Hate Crime

A Brazos County district court jury decides a Williamson County man did not commit a hate crime during a road rage incident in College Station four and a half years ago.

The jury deliberated 90 minutes before convicting 52 year old David Brinkmeyer of Taylor of two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

The jury decided Brinkmeyer did not intentionally commit the crime because of the victim’s race or color.

The jury then spent another 30 minutes in the punishment phase before deciding to give Brinkmeyer probation from a seven year prison term.

The trial judge will determine conditions of the probation after receiving a report from the probation office.

Brinkmeyer was found guilty of pointing a gun in the direction of two people in a vehicle that had cut him off. He was also accused in the October 2014 incident of yelling racial slurs.

This week’s trial was held after six settings. Among the reasons for the delay was the health of one of the trial attorneys.

Brinkmeyer remains out of jail on bonds totaling $21,000 dollars until sentencing is completed.
