ROCKFORD (WREX) — A man is found guilty in front of a Winnebago County jury of sexual abuse charges. Authorities say he assaulted a victim multiple times over the course of nearly 2 years.
In October of 2017, Rockton Police and Winnebago County Sheriff’s detectives began investigating allegations of sexual abuse by Raul Gonzalez Hernandez. The victim told investigators he repeatedly sexually assaulted her between May of 2015 and July of 2017. The victim was only 15 years old when the assaults began.
After the investigation, Hernandez Gonzalez was indicted by a grand jury and was found guilty this week.
He faces 4-15 years in prison.
