Gonzales, 15, lured eight-year-old Maddy to his apartment where he attacked her. Gonzales bound, raped, and ultimately murdered Maddy and discarded her in a recycling bin. Because of SB 1391, Gonzales could not be tried in adult court, as he was under 16 when he committed the crimes. Gonzales pleaded guilty to the murder and will be incarcerated until he turns 25.
