In less than an hour, Thaddeus Gonzalez is due in a Denver courtroom in relation to three sex-crime charges: two counts of sexual assault on a child and sexual assault -- ten year age difference.

But the Denver District Attorney's Office isn't sure the individuals involved in these three incidents, which date over a two-year period ending in September (he was formally charged the next month), are Gonzalez's only victims.

Find out where he allegedly operated below:


Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey formally charged a man in early October with sexually assaulting young girls, and investigators are concerned there could be other victims.

Thaddeus Gonzalez (dob: 09-20-69) was charged with two counts of sexual assault on a child (F4) in connection with two separate incidents that took place in February 2007 and June 2009.

Gonzalez is also charged with sexual assault -- ten year age difference (M1) in connection with another incident that occurred in September 2009.

The charges allege that Gonzalez sexually assaulted three female victims ranging in age from 8 to 16 at an apartment complex located in the 1700 block of South Pecos Street and a home in the same neighborhood near Ruby Hill Park between 2007 and 2009.

Gonzalez has been released from custody on $57,000 bond. He is set to appear in Denver County Courtroom 472W tomorrow, December 16, 2009 at 8:30 a.m. for a preliminary hearing.

Anyone with information about additional victims should contact the Denver District Attorney's Office at 720-913-9000 or Info@DenverDA.org
