CHARLOTTE (CBS Charlotte) — An illegal immigrant is accused of raping a 14-year-old girl and fathering her child.
WBTV reports that 35-year-old Juan Martinez Hernandez was arrested Sunday morning after the teenage girl gave birth.
The Charlotte Observer reports that the girl gave birth to the baby in the bathroom of an apartment.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement has now placed an immigration detainer on Hernandez. He was originally deported back to Honduras in October 2010 after being arrested for a DUI charge, according to a statement given to the station.
Authorities are trying to figure out how he got back into the country.
According to a Charlotte-Mecklenburg police report, Hernandez admitted to having sex with the teenage girl on multiple occasions.
Hernandez has been charged with four counts of statutory rape. He is being held on $250,000 bond at the Mecklenburg County Jail.
