A 70-year-old man from Florida has been arrested after he allegedly impregnated a 13-year-old girl. Renaud Jerome of Boca Raton was arrested on Friday after the victim complained of pain symptoms associated with constipation when she showed up at a hospital.
Tests carried out led doctors to discover that she was 14 weeks pregnant.
The Miami Herald reports that the victim told police that Jerome “would touch her and have sex with her” and was the father of the child she is carrying.
The suspect, Jerome, who only speaks Creole, told police that he had consensual sex with the victim three times over the past couple of months.
“Jerome stated that within the last couple of months he has had consensual vaginal intercourse with [redacted] three times,” police said.
“Jerome stated that [redacted] was interested in him more than he was interested in her and never forced her to do anything.”
Jerome is being held at the Palm Beach County Jail without bond and he’s required not to have any contact with the teen or anyone under 18.
