Alejandro Jimenez Gonzalez, 36

Two counts of felony first-degree criminal sexual conduct – sexual penetration with child under 13 – and one count of felony first-degree criminal sexual conduct – sexual penetration – multiple acts over time – were dismissed at the sentencing as part of a plea agreement reached on Dec. 2.

Judge Kevin Siefken issued the sentence.

Court documents state that an Austin police detective received a child abuse intake report from Mower County Human Services in which a 13-year-old female had disclosed Gonzalez, who was known to her, had sexually abused her.

In it, the victim stated the abuse took place when she was aged 10-11 and occurred when she was alone with Gonzalez.

The detective met with the victim, who provided details about the abuse. She told the detective she did what Gonzalez told her to because she “didn’t want to get hit.” She also said he sometimes caused her pain when the abuse occurred.

Gonzalez initially denied sexually abusing the victim and said he was never alone with her.
