NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Investigators with the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) is asking for help from the public locating a man on the Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender who has ties to North Texas.
A reward of up to $3,000 is being offered for information leading to the capture of Raul Gonzalez Junior. The 39-yeaar-old is wanted for parole violations and failing to register as a sex offender.
In 1999, Gonzalez was convicted in Tarrant County of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl. After serving part or all of his sentence of 10 years in prison, Gonzalez was jailed again for failing to satisfy state sex offender registration requirements. He was paroled on that offense in July of 2016, but was required to wear a GPS ankle monitor. It was that same month when Gonzalez cut off the ankle monitor and failed to report to a Fort Worth facility.
Raul Gonzalez Jr. stands 5’7″ and weighs approximately 170 pounds. He has a scar on his head, has a chest tattoo that says “Gonzalez” and has other tattoos on his left arm. In the past he has used the alias “Randy Gonzalez” and also may be known by the nickname “Tonic Kat.”
