A 50-year-old man has been arrested and charged with impregnating a 14-year-old girl, according to reports.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said the man, who is in a familial/custodial position, forced the teen, who was 13-years-old at the time, to have sexual intercourse. The alleged incident occurred sometime in 2016.
The teen gave birth to a baby girl in September 2017.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement conducted a DNA test, allegedly proving that the man is the biological father of the child.
The 50-year-old was arrested and charged with sexual battery (familial/custodial) and child abuse (impregnation).
