JUDGE GRANT THROWS BOOK AT MAN WHO TOLD HIS SEXUAL ASSAULT VICTIM THAT HIS ATTORNEY WILL GET HIM OFF

In September of 2018, Bryce Means met a young lady on Plenty of Fish dating site. He convinced the young lady to meet him at his home on Blueberry Hill in Willis.  The pretense was that there was a family bonfire for a relative’s birthday and would be many people there.  When she arrived he was on the back porch and nobody else there. Means offered her a drink which after she consumed it felt woozy. Means then proceeded to tell her of another female who visited and forced her to satisfy him sexually. He told the victim that the earlier female did report the incident to the police. The victim reported that Means told her that it could never be proven because he had the best defense attorney in town. During this time the victim tried to leave but Means kept his arms wrapped around her. Once she was successful in getting him off of her asked her, Means said, “did I do something wrong, are you going to call the police on me?” The victim told investigators that Means then told her “not to worry” because he has a good defense attorney.  She told investigators that Means then struck her knocking her to the ground and sexually assaulted her.  When detectives with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s interviewed Means he denied the allegations. That was when they discovered Means had been charged in another sexual assault case in May of 2017 from a December 2015 case.

In that incident, the female victim told investigators that Means and her met and as they sat in the vehicle he placed his hands on her body which she resisted.  He then told her if he did not satisfy her sexually he would post pictures and videos that he had of her on the internet. He also In that case Means case was dropped from sexual assault to indecent exposure. Investigators were able to retrieve cell phone evidence and a warrant was issued for Means. He was arrested and charged with sexual assault in June of 2017. On March 20, 2018, the charge was dropped from a felony to a Class B Misdemeanor of indecent exposure in the 221st District Court.  He was sentenced to 180 days in the Montgomery County Jail.

It was just 6 months after the sentencing in the 2015 case that the September 2018 incident occurred.  It was a year later  (December 2019) he was arrested and charged with sexual assault in Judge Grants Court. He was given a $50,000 bond and released. But in March of 2021, the bond was set aside after Means tested positive eight different times and also tested positive for meth.  He was then once again released on a $50,000 bond. On June 15, 2021, he was sentenced to four years of deferred probation with restrictions not to have contact with the victim, remote monitoring of electronic devices, and was barred from any early termination of the probation. Two months (August 2021)  later he was again arrested after testing positive for marijuana, and he attempted to contact the victim in this case. He was then given a $100,000 bond and would face Judge Grant to show why his probation should not be revoked and sent to prison.  Means who had bragged about his attorney getting him off to the victim was sentenced Monday to 15-years in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice by Judge Grant in the  9th District Court.
