Ernesto Gonzalez, father of missing Giovanni Gonzalez, is to be arraigned on new charges of Parental Kidnapping and Willfully Misleading Police tomorrow. He was indicted this afternoon by a grand jury in Essex on the new charges. If he is convicted he’ll face up to eleven years in jail on these charges.
Ever since Giovanni went missing back on August 16th Ernesto has denied involvement (at least originally) but witnesses told police that they saw the two of them together on August 16th.
Back at the end of November Gonzalez confessed to having killed Giovanni but investigators don’t believe his story and launched a new search for him two days after the confession.
