DEPUTIES: 14-Year-Old Pregnant After Statutory Rape

A Seven Springs man is in jail, accused in the statutory rape of a relative who is now pregnant.

Wayne County deputies say Florencio Gomez was arrested Wednesday on charges of statutory rape and sex offense with a defendant at least six years older than the victim.

Deputies say they were alerted Tuesday to the sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl after she went to a doctor's office and discovered she was pregnant.

The 26-year-old Gomez has been jailed in a $500,000 bond.
