A former Olympic gold medalist and youth boxing coach is scheduled to be arraigned today on charges that he sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl last year, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced.

Paul Gonzales (dob 4/18/64) is expected to be arraigned in Department 30 of the Foltz Criminal Justice Center. He is charged in case BA464024 with four counts of lewd act upon a child and one count each of attempted lewd act upon a child, possession of child pornography, distributing or showing pornography to a minor and contact with a minor for sexual offense.

Deputy District Attorney Jennifer Hall Cops of the Sex Crimes Division is prosecuting the case.

Gonzales, who won a gold medal in boxing at the 1984 Summer Olympics, worked at the Eddie Heredia Boxing Club in East Los Angeles. He occasionally trained the 13-year-old victim and allegedly committed the crimes between May and December 2017.

If convicted as charged, he faces a possible maximum sentence of 18 years and four months in state prison.

The case remains under investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
