HOUSTON (CBS Houston) A man is accused of continuous sexual abuse against an 11-year-old female relative which resulted in that relative becoming pregnant.
After CBS Radio Houston learned that the victim was related to the suspect, the name of the suspect will not be released.
According to investigators, the older male relative would routinely sneak into the child’s home when her mom went to work and would allegedly force himself upon her.
The child told police that this older male relative would enter her apartment almost every day when no one was home. She further told police that she would beg him to stop but he would not comply with her wishes.
The abuse came to light when officials from the girl’s school noticed that she was pregnant.
The man tried contacting the girl by text asking why she told on him and allegedly said he was going to kill himself. He now sits in jail charged with continuous sexual assault of a child and is being held on a $50,000 bond.
The suspect is scheduled for another court appearance Thursday and the young victim is expected to give birth very soon.
