A 17-year-old teenager has been accused of incest and rape after the Missouri police said he confessed to having sex with an 11-year-old family member who then gave birth to their child in a bathtub.
Norvin Leonidas Lopez-Cante was charged with legal rape, legal sodomy and incest after the police said he admitted the crimes.
Authorities began investigating Tuesday when Lopez-Cante’s father, Francisco Javier Gonzalez-Lopez, rushed a baby to St. Joseph Hospital in St. Charles, according to KSDK TV.
The police say that Gonzalez-Lopez told the investigators that someone dropped the child off on his porch.
According to police documents, the umbilical cord and the placenta were still confirmed when the baby arrived at the hospital.
The baby’s body temperature also dropped to just 90 degrees, according to researchers.
The police interviewed Gonzalez-Lopez at his house two days later.
Police started an investigation Tuesday after Lopez-Cante’s father, Francisco Javier Gonzalez-Lopez, had brought a baby to St. Joseph Hospital in St. Charles
Researchers said that Gonzalez-Lopez told them that his son, Lopez-Cante, was the child’s father.
The child’s mother was an 11-year-old relative of Lopez-Cante. Gonzalez-Lopez is said to have told the police.
Gonzalez-Lopez told the researchers that he did not know that the 11-year-old girl was pregnant or that his son was having sex with her.
He said he only learned of the alleged rapes after giving birth to the baby in the bath.
The police then detained Lopez-Cante. He told the authorities that he had sex with the family member about 100 times, although he claims he did not know she was pregnant.
Lopez-Cante is said to have told the police that he had sex with the family member about twice a week, although he does not remember the first sexual encounter.
Lopez-Cante was arrested and charged with first-degree legal rape, legal sodomy, and incest.
If he is convicted, he is confronted with life in prison.
The baby was said to have a body temperature of only 90 degrees and still attached the umbilical cord and placenta when Gonzalez-Lopez brought it to St. Joseph Hospital (see the above stock image)
The loan from Lopez-Cante was set at $ 25,000 – cash only.
Gonzalez-Lopez was charged with endangering the well-being of a child.
His bond was only set at $ 10,000 in cash.
According to the authorities, Gonzalez-Lopez entered the United States illegally after it was deported.
