Killeen man pleads guilty to obstruction, faces 10 years in prison

WACO, TX (KXXV) - A 33-year-old Killeen man faces up to ten years in federal prison after pleading guilty Thursday afternoon to an obstruction of justice charge, namely witness tampering.

According to a release from the Department of Justice, court records show that on March 6, Carrick Mondale Mango approached a witness who was set to testify in the trial of Christopher Wilson. The witness told deputy U.S. Marshals that Mango told him not to testify against Wilson, and gave them an intimidating look.

The witness took the stand, but did not identify Christopher Wilson, even though they were neighbors. Mango is also accused of accosting the prosecutor trying the case, and following another witness to the lobby of the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Sentencing for Mango is set for August 6, and he remains in federal custody until sentencing.

Christopher Wilson and his brother Cornelius were found guilty of multiple drug charges for a cocaine distribution operation based in Killeen. In April, Christopher was sentenced to 35 years, and Cornelius were sentenced to 30 years in federal prison.
