Child molester sentenced to 40 years in prison

Monico Gonzales of Leander was sentenced to 40 years in prison after pleading guilty to aggravated sexual assault of a child

Gonzales, 34, was convicted and sentenced by Judge Ken Anderson.

In July 2007, a 12-year old Leander girl told her mother that Gonzales had been forcing her to perform oral sex on him. Leander police investigated, and Gonzales eventually confessed to police that he had been sexually abusing the child for several months.

Gonzales also admitted to police that he had been giving rides to school to a middle school girl in the neighborhood. Police have not been able to identify that child in order to investigate the case further. “We are hoping that anyone with information about this unknown child will come forward,” said District Attorney John Bradley. “Any other child harmed by this criminal should no longer be afraid and can be kept safe through the Children’s Advocacy Center.”

Anyone with information about Monico Gonzales can call Det. A.J. Keirn with the Leander Police Department. Gonzales is not eligible for parole for at least 20 years.
