3/29/2019 - Bexar County grand jury indicts former BCSO jailer for assault on inmate

Thursday, a Bexar County grand jury returned an indictment against former Bexar County Sheriff's Office Detention Officer Raul Macias Gonzales, age 31.

Gonzales was charged in a four-count indictment with Official Oppression, Violation of Civil Rights, Aggravated Assault and Engaging in Organized Crime. The charges stem from acts that are alleged to have taken place in April 2017, when Gonzales used his position, power, and authority as a Bexar County Sheriff Detention Officer to subject an inmate to assault by other inmates housed in the same unit. The victimized inmate was subsequently transported to University Hospital for medical treatment.

Gonzales was terminated from the Bexar County Sheriff's Office later that year after an investigation was conducted into the assault.
