Congratulations to our Certificate of Excellence Recipient Victim Advocate II Sonja Gonzales

As a Victim Advocate, Sonja is assigned to assist victims and their families. During her 15-year tenure, Sonja has been assigned to assist in a variety of cases; however, she is currently assigned to assist in homicides, adult sexual assault and major crimes cases. 

Recently, Sonja was required to simultaneously assist on two particularly difficult and emotional cases. 

One of those cases involved the murder of an estranged wife and the other involved the sexual molestation of multiple minor victims. During the course of both cases, Sonja was able to adeptly render support to all the families who attended the hearings nearly every day. At the end of every day she also checked in with the two prosecutors on the case to see if she could assist with the next day’s tasks. 

Not only does Sonja competently serve the victims and the families she works with, she is also a tremendous asset to her fellow advocates in the Rancho Cucamonga office. No matter what the request, Sonja is always there to lend a helping hand or to give much needed advice. The Rancho Cucamonga office is grateful that she is part of our prosecution team.
