Wytheville, VA – This morning, Del. Wren Williams was found “not guilty” and exonerated of the baseless criminal charges brought by Del. Marie March. March had falsely alleged that Williams had committed “Assault and Battery” against her at the Ninth Congressional District Republican Celebration Gala in September 2022.
On the strength of witness testimony that exonerated Williams, security footage that contradicted March’s allegations, and inconsistencies in the testimonies of March’s witnesses, March’s case fell apart. After a short trial, the judge ruled that Wren Williams was “not guilty’ and dismissed the case so that it cannot be brought again. The following statement can be attributed to Del. Wren Williams:
“I am grateful that the truth has come out and justice has been served. I am especially thankful for my family, friends, and supporters who stood by us. I am thankful they have been vindicated.”
“From the start, March brought these charges as a political hit-job. March has a pattern of using the criminal justice system to target people who stand in her way. This was a desperate move and it’s clear March is unhinged. I am grateful March’s allegations were proven false in court, so this controversy can officially be put to rest.”
“I am looking forward to traveling to Richmond for the legislative session next week, where we will work hard for our district and stand firm for our conservative values. My wife, Britt, and I are expecting our firstborn son any day now. We can’t wait to welcome him into the world. God has blessed us greatly and we are very thankful.”
Wren Williams is currently the sitting delegate representing Virginia’s 9th House District, serving on the Committees on Public Safety, Privileges and Elections, and Courts of Justice. Since redistricting, Williams is running for re-election in Virginia’s new 47th House District. Prior to his election as delegate, Williams served as chairman of the Patrick County Republican Committee (PCRC), where he flipped the board of supervisors and school board to Republican control, earning the Republican Party of Virginia’s “Unit of the Year” award. During the 2020 election, Wren traveled the country to help the Republican National Committee (RNC) and President Trump fight for election integrity in the courtroom in Wisconsin. In 2021, Williams made headlines when he challenged and defeated a 14-year incumbent by 26 points in the Republican Primary. Outside of politics, Wren lives in Stuart, VA with his wife, Britt, where they own and operate Schneider & Williams Law Firm.
