WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – A jury has found former Dallas Cowboy Joseph Randle guilty on one count of aggravated battery, criminal threat, aggravated burglary and possession of marijuana.
A mistrial was declared on count 1, count 2, and count 6 of criminal damage to property. Randle was found not guilty on count 4 of aggravated battery.
- Count 1 – Mistrial aggravated battery
- Count 2 – Mistrial aggravated battery
- Count 3 – Guilty aggravated battery
- Count 4 – Not guilty aggravated battery
- Count 5 – Guilty criminal threat
- Count 6 – Mistrial criminal damage property
- Count 7 – Guilty possession marijuana
- Count 8 – Guilty aggravated burglary
The case stems from an incident back in February 2016 from a fight at a party where more than a dozen people told police Randle got into an argument, and then he got into his car.
“At the end of the day, he was convicted of the most serious count, the aggravated burglary and at least one of the aggravated batteries for the allegation so that will play into our consideration of whether or not to retry, try the other counts again the hung counts,” said Sedgwick County District Attorney Marc Bennett.
The rest of charges that were declared a mistrial are now pending will be brought back up on May 1 to see if the state wants to pursue those charges.
“Between now and then, we will have a discussion about the remainder of the counts the ones that were hung and whether or not we will retry those or simply go to sentencing on the counts of conviction,” said Bennett.
Sentencing for Randle is set for June. The aggravated burglary charge could bring probation to 136 months in prison.
