My granddaughter, 8-year old Maddy Middleton of Santa Cruz California was kidnapped, raped and murdered while playing in the courtyard of her apartment complex in 2015. Her almost 16-year old acquaintance and neighbor Adrian (AJ) Gonzalez lured Maddy to his apartment by offering her ice cream. He then attacked her from behind, tied her up, beat, raped and stabbed her to death before dumping and hiding her body in the recycling bin in the parking garage downstairs.

Please sign this petition in an effort to have Gonzalez tried as an adult. The transfer hearing starts on August 21, 2017, and is anticipated to last for several weeks. The heinous nature of the crime, level of sophistication, planning and cover-up, murder with special circumstances / rape with force / lewd and lascivious acts on a child under 14 with force, necessitates an adult court trial.

We the people undersigned call on the criminal justice system to try Adrian Gonzalez as an adult.
