VICTORIA - A Victoria man will spend the next four decades in prison for breaking the rules almost eight years after he was caught sexually assaulting his young cousin.
Ricardo Gonzales, 35, has been sentenced to 40-years in prison after a judge found he violated conditions of his probation.
Gonzales was put on probation in 2006 for aggravated sexual assault of a child and possession of child pornography. According to Victoria County District Attorney Stephen Tyler, in May of 2006, Gonzales gave his 13-year-old cousin alcohol, then sexually assaulted her while she was unconscious, and took photographs of her. He was also sentenced to ten years in prison for the porn charge, but didn't have to serve the time.
Gonzales moved to Florida, where he was caught by his probation officer with pornographic images on his phone, and extradited back to Texas in July of 2013.
