Brigette Gonzalez Sentenced For Aggravated Assault
A Casper woman will avoid prison time after admitting to assaulting another woman.
Brigette Gonzalez was given a one-to-two year suspended prison sentence with three years of probation, after she pleaded guilty to one charge of aggravated assault.
Investigators with the Casper Police Department say in middle February, officers were contacted by Gonzalez, who was already at the Natrona County Detention Center on an unrelated incident.
She said she was present when 35-year old William Coronado III attacked the victim at a hotel.
Gonzalez added the she felt she couldn’t do anything, because what Coronado wants, he gets and “what he wants done has to be done."
Gonzalez told police this because she felt bad over what had happened, did not plan the incident and wanted officers to know the truth.
Officers had responded to the hotel on the night in question for a suicide call, and they took the victim to the hospital to be treated for a number of injuries.
Investigators say the victim later told them, that Coronado punched her and cut her with a pocket knife, when she tried to leave, and that Gonzalez held the victim down in the process.
Among the injuries that the victim sustained included, three broken bones on the left side of her face.
Gonzalez has also been ordered to complete the felony program at the Casper Re-Entry Center.
Coronado has also pleaded not guilty to charges connected to this case, and is awaiting trial.
