Miami, FL (June 17, 2019) – A police lieutenant was charged for the second time with molesting a young girl, approximately six months after his first set of charges.
The man has since been identified by police as Braulio Gonzalez, who was charged with three counts of lewd and lascivious molestation of a child under 12 years of age. The new charges he now faces involve a second victim.
According to records, the victim spoke with a psychologist and told them that she was fondled by Gonzalez when she was between 8 and 10 years old. He also pointed a gun at her head while he was fondling her, threatening to kill her and a relative if she told anyone.
Police say that the molestation continued for approximately two years.
At this time, the investigation into the charges continues.
