GOLDEN - A man convicted of pimping his then 14-year-old foster child was sentenced Wednesday to 112 years in prison.
Family members of the now 17-year-old victim told the judge the teen was a "broken little girl" when Robert Gonzales, 41, came into her life.
Gonzales met the teen in 2011 through a foster home placement and began having sex with her, grooming her to believe that she was in love with him, according to a release from the district attorney's office.
Gonzales provided her with methamphetamine and alcohol and forced her to have sex for money or drugs with men she did not know. He arranged for the motel rooms in which she would have sex with strangers. The money and drugs went to Gonzales.
Prosecutor Katie Kurtz said that Gonzales didn't treat the young woman as a human being, but as his property. She described that he had punched her, kicked her, burned her with cigarettes, and used her to create child pornography. He also caused her to be addicted to methamphetamine.
