Officers with the Crockett Police Department arrested a 19-year-old man Tuesday for sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl and her residence.

Julio Gonzalez is still being held in jail on second-degree felony charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child.

According to the arrest affidavit, a Crockett Police Department investigator met with the 13-year-old victim and her parents on Oct. 11. The girl's parents told the investigator they had found bruises on the girl's neck earlier that day.

When the parents asked the girl where she got the marks, she told them a man named Julio had caused them while she had gone walking with another female. The affidavit said the investigator also noticed the bruising on the girl's neck. She told the CPD investigator the same story she had told her parents.

After the family described the suspect, his family, and the suspect's vehicle, the investigator identified the suspect as Gonzalez.

While the investigator was interviewing the victim and her family, another Crockett PD officer made a traffic stop on Gonzalez' vehicle. The man was asked to go to the Crockett Police Department to talk to the investigator.

During a "non-custodial" interview, the investigator asked Gonzalez what had happened on the evening of Oct. 10, the affidavit stated. Gonzalez allegedly admitted to going to the victim's Crockett residence and having sexual intercourse with the girl in her bedroom.

Gonzalez told the investigator that he did not know how old the girl was. However, he also said he was aware of the laws in regard to sexual intercourse and age.

When the investigator interviewed the 13-year-old girl again she said after Gonzalez contacted her on Oct. 10, she asked him to come to her home. After she let him in, they had what she described as "sex," according to the arrest affidavit.

The 13-year-old victim also told the investigator that while she and Gonzalez were communicating via text messages, he told her that he was aware that he could get in trouble for having sex with her because of her age.

According to Texas law, a child under the age of 17 cannot legally give consent to have sex.
