Remigio “Remy” Gonzalez, 32 who was a cast member of the hit TV show “Cake Boss” will be arraigned on June 15th in a Morris County courtroom on charges of sexually abusing a 13 year old girl. He was indicted on April 21 by a Morris County grand jury on 15 counts that he sexually assaulted and endangered the welfare of the girl in Hoboken, East Hanover and Florham Park between July 1, 2009, and March 8, 2010. According to CentralJersey,com:
Gonzalez was arrested last August and has not been able to post his $300,000 bail to be freed from the county jail.
When Cake Boss began airing on the TLC cable network in 2009, Gonzalez frequently appeared on the popular show that features Carlo’s Bake Shop in Hoboken and its owner, Buddy Valastro.
Before his arrest, Gonzalez worked in the bakery as a confection decorator and was married to Valastro’s sister, but websites that cite Cake Boss cast members say the couple has divorced.
The indictment charges Gonzalez with three counts of aggravated sexual assault, which carries a possible maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. He also is charged with another 12 counts that include child endangerment, sexual assault, aggravated criminal sexual contact and criminal sexual contact, all references to levels of alleged abuse by Gonzalez on the girl.
