Suspects Arrested in Sexual Assaults Against Juveniles

December 14, 2006 -- Houston police have arrested two suspects, a husband and wife, in connection with separate incidents of sexual assaults of juvenile males dating back to January 2004.

One suspect, Brandy Lynn Gonzales (w/f, DOB 8-28-79), is charged with three counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child and two counts of indecency with a child in the 209th and 230th State District Courts. Her husband, Johnny Ray Gonzales (H/m, DOB 3-27-75), is charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child in the 230th State District Court. Both suspects were arrested without incident at separate locations on Monday (December 11).

HPD Juvenile Division Sex Crimes Unit Officers J.M. Barnes and E.Y. Rodriguez reported:

HISD police generated a report on December 4, 2006 regarding the sexual assaults of several juveniles in the Spring of 2004, primarily at 8921 Pagewood (Piney Point Elementary School). Investigators interviewed numerous juvenile male victims, all of whom were Brandy Gonzales' 5th grade students or had some dealing with her at Piney Point Elementary during this time, and confirmed the allegations to file charges. The victims were ages 11 to 13.

During the investigation, officers learned that suspect Brandy Gonzales was employed at various schools from August 1998 through May 2006:

  • Parker Elementary School (Teacher's Aide)- August 1998 through June 2000, resigned.
  • Piney Point Elementary School (5th Grade Teacher)- December 2001 through July 2004.
  • Park Place Elementary School (Teacher)- August 2004 through August 2005, resigned.
  • Clear Lake Christian School (Teacher)- August 2005 through May 2006.

The investigation revealed suspect Johnny Gonzales sexually assaulted one of Brandy Gonzales' victims on several occasions. That led to the charges filed against him.

Investigators are asking any former students who might have had any inappropriate contact, inside or outside of school, with either of the suspects, to contact them and make a report of the incident. Officers J.M. Barnes and E.Y. Rodriguez with the HPD Juvenile Division-Sex Crimes Unit can be reached at 713-731-5336.
