AUSTIN - The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) is reminding the public that the reward for Jaime Gonzalez, 37, has been increased to $10,000 for information leading to his capture if the tip comes in during the month of November. Gonzalez, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive and this month's featured fugitive, is wanted for possession of child pornography and unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

All tips are guaranteed to be anonymous.

In November 2014, Gonzalez absconded from trial proceedings in El Paso while being prosecuted for possession of child pornography. Gonzalez was subsequently convicted of the crime and sentenced to serve time in prison.

However, his whereabouts since absconding are unknown. Gonzalez has ties to El Paso and the state of Iowa.
