Elmendorf police officer accused of having sex with girl, 13

Jesus Gonzalez, 42, arrested in uniform

SAN ANTONIO – A reserve officer with the Elmendorf Police Department was in full uniform Tuesday when he was arrested and accused of having a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old girl, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.

Jesus Gonzalez, 42, faces a first degree felony charge of continuous sex abuse of a child.

The arrest affidavit did not specify the agency that employed Gonzalez.

However, state law enforcement records obtained by the KSAT 12 Defenders confirm Gonzalez worked as a reserve officer at the time of his arrest Tuesday.

An Elmendorf police official confirmed Thursday Gonzalez resigned following his arrest.

Gonzalez's badge, ID and other city property has since been returned, according to the official.

Additionally, county officials confirmed Gonzalez worked as an entry-level juvenile detention officer the past year, before resigning December 12.

The county's chief juvenile probation officer said Gonzalez resigned while facing discipline for attendance issues, unrelated to the sex assault case.
