2 former SAPD officers indicted on charges of aggravated assault by a public servant

On Wednesday, a Bexar County Grand Jury returned indictments against two former San Antonio Police officers for charges of aggravated assault by a public servant.

The separate indictments allege that on Jan. 16, 2020, Carlos Castro and Thomas Villarreal intentionally, knowingly and recklessly caused serious bodily injury to Eric Wilson by striking Wilson with the hands of Castro and Villarreal and that Castro and Villarreal were acting under the color of their employment as a public servant, namely a police officer.

These cases are being prosecuted by the Civil Rights Division in the 379th District Court. Aggravated assault by a public servant is a first degree felony punishable by 5 to 99 years or life in prison and a possible fine of up to $10,000.

An indictment is not a finding of guilt. A person charged by indictment is presumed innocent until found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt by a jury or a judge. Because these and potentially other cases are either pending or may be under investigation, we can make no further comment on them.

Upon their arrest, copies of these indictments may be requested from the Bexar County District Clerk. Information on court settings can be found by searching the case online or directly from the court once the defendants have been formally booked on these charges.
