Offender will serve prison time for violationsPublished 9:51am Tuesday, October 9, 2012
A predatory offender convicted in 2007 and 2008 of third-degree criminal sexual conduct, escaping from custody and fifth-degree assault was sent to 18 months in prison Monday.
Aurelio Gomez Gonzalez, 26, was convicted in Mower County Court of violating his terms as an offender, a felony, and sentenced to 18 months in prison.
Gomez was originally charged with four counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct and one fourth-degree count in August 2003. According to the court complaints, Gomez Gonzalez, 18 at the time, left a party with a girl between the ages of 13 and 16 and sexually molested her in his car. He was convicted in that case in 2004 and escaped from custody that same year — later convicted in 2007.
Gomez Gonzalez also hit a woman in 2007, shoved her into his car and made her ride with him until he stopped at a gas station, where the victim called police. Gomez Gonzalez was convicted of assault in 2008 in that case.
