Lantigua to fire cop charged with child rape

(Continued)

On Feb. 27, Gonzalez was arrested and charged by Haines City, Fla. fugitive from justice warrant. He is charged in Haines City, which is located between Tampa and Orlando, with sexual battery by a custodian on a person between the ages of 12 and 18 and selling, giving or serving alcohol to a person under 21. The victim, who has not been identified by police, said she was assaulted in a private home on July 22, 2012.

Last week, more than three months after his arrest, Rockingham County grand jurors handed down the indictment against Gonzalez for aggravated felonious sexual assault. The indictments alleged between Nov. 1, 1992 and April 30, 1993, Gonzalez sexually assaulted a girl who was then 11 years old.

Salem, N.H. police reopened a previous sexual assault complaint against Gonzalez after he was charged by Haines City police.

Lantigua did not return a message seeking comment for this story.
