Officer Marley Mayo – Brenham Police Department

Officer Marley Mayo found NOT guilty for Family Violence

February 2024 – A trial was held for Marley Mayo, who was charged with Assault Causing Bodily Injury to a Family Member and Interfering with an Emergency Request for Assistance.  The verdict by Washington County Court at Law Judge Eric Berg was not guilty on both counts.

The dispute concerned officer Mayo and officer Kevin Mertz, now a former member of the Brenham Police Department, as well as a second woman whom Mertz was secretly involved with at the same time he was in a relationship with Mayo. 

The scuffle ensued after, according to the prosecution, Mayo came to Mertz’ home in the early morning hours of August 22, 2021 to spend the night, when she discovered the other woman at the residence. 

None of the three parties involved chose to press charges, according to Mayo’s defense attorney, Paul Looney.  Charges were filed on Mayo by the county, who charged that, along with the assault, she attempted to block Mertz from calling 911. 

During the trial, Mertz admitted that he initiated physical contact in the dispute with Mayo.  He also said he had never taken away Mayo’s permission to come into his home. 

In addition, Mertz said he did not initially tell Mayo he was calling 911, and that she only tried to stop him from making the call when she believed he was calling her mother.  He stated that once he confirmed he was calling police, she did not try to stop him from doing so.  

Further, Mertz admitted to trying to get the charges against Mayo dropped on the basis that he lied in the police report to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

A statement from Washington County Attorney Renee Mueller said the prosecution “felt the evidence proved the case beyond a reasonable doubt,” but respected the decision of the judge.  It also read, “Domestic violence cases are difficult cases with victims often recanting and blaming themselves.  However, the problem is widespread and often downplayed in our community and country, and it often effects many generations.”
