Brandon man charged with rape for second time

A Brandon man already facing rape charges from last year was arrested Saturday morning on similar charges, according to an arrest report.

Deputies arrested Wilson Gomez, 50, at his home at 202 Mason St., after, they say, he had sex with a woman who did not give her consent. He is charged with sexual battery, the report said.

Gomez was arrested in 2009 and charged with sexual battery using a deadly weapon or force causing injury in connection with a 2001 incident, jail records show. According to Hillsborough County court records, these charges are part of an ongoing case and he has not been convicted.

Gomez is held without bail at the Orient Road Jail.

This article has been revised to reflect the following correction: U.S. Special Operations Command at MacDill Air Force Base says it has no record of Wilson Gomez, 50, of Brandon, being employed by the command. A story Sunday was incorrect on this point.
