Sexual Assault Charges Filed Against Carthage Man

By Austin Robertson. CREATED Oct 6, 2013

A 50-year-old man from Jasper County is charged with sexually assaulting an 18-year-old woman.

Prosecutors say Hector Gonzalez, from Carthage, twice got the victim drunk and forced her to have sex with him.

He's also accused of trying it a third time. But instead of using alcohol, prosecutors say Gonzalez preyed on the victim's fear of what he would do if she refused.

Gonzalez has bonded out of jail.
