While on probation, Gonzalez will be expected to not use alcohol, controlled substances or drugs with the exception of prescription medication; submit to random testing, complete a chemical assessment within 30 days, attend the Crime Victims Crisis Center women’s non-violence class and follow other court requirements.

Gonzalez received of stay of adjudication sentence, meaning she can avoid having a conviction on her record if she successfully completes probation.

Gonzalez’s lawyer, Jeremy Clinefelter, described the relationship between Gonzalez and the victim as “extremely volatile, toxic.”

He said Gonzalez has filed a harassment restraining order against the victim.

Court documents state Gonzalez was charged after officers were dispatched May 8 to an Albert Lea address on a report of a domestic assault. Officers noticed the victim had blood on his white T-shirt and left hand.

The victim was Facetiming during the incident, and court documents state a witness through the application said she saw Gonzalez yell and physically assault the victim.

Gonzalez was charged with domestic assault by strangulation, but that count was dismissed.
