Remy Gonzalez, one of the stars of TLC’s Cake Boss, is being held in a Morris County, New Jersey jail on several charges relating to the sexual assault of a minor.
32-year-old Gonzales was arrested on August 17th, according to nj.com:
Remegio Gonzalez, 32, of East Hanover, was arrested Aug. 17 and allegedly admitted to witnesses committing assaults that occurred in March in East Hanover and Florham Park, according to an arrest affidavit filed in Superior Court in Morristown.
Gonzalez is charged in both towns with first- and third-degreee aggravated sexual assault, second degree sex assault, third-degree endangering and fourth-degree criminal-sexual contact.
The affidavit asserts that the two unnamed witnesses “confronted” the Cake Boss co-star about the alleged assaults. While he is said to have initially denied the accusations, court documents assert that after the witnesses threatened to obtain medical attention for the teenager, Gonzalez “broke down”crying and admitted to the behavior.
One of the witnesses is said to have recorded a phone conversation with Gonzalez in which he confessed to the incidents:
During that call, the witness said that he/she “could not believe this was going on. You broke our hearts,” to which Gonzalez replied, “I know, I know I did,” according to the affidavit.
Also during this call, Gonzalez acknowledged having previously admitted on Aug. 13 that he assaulted the teen, but now said he only touched the teen’s intimate areas, and that he “made a mistake,” “wanted to get help” and “forget about it,” the affidavit says.
Gonzalez remains in jail in lieu of $300,000 bail.
