The mother of a 10-year-old Ohio girl who was raped and impregnated by an illegal immigrant has refused the charges, despite the suspect admitting to the criminal offense.
The girl, who declined to identify himself, claims her daughter is definitely ‘ fine’ after being forced to travel to Indiana to obtain an abortion.
The procedure was barred in their home state because of the so-called heartbeat bill, which usually bans abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected.
Gerson Fuentes, 27, of Guatemala, confessed to raping the young girl – however , her mom alleged to a television reporter that ‘ everything they’re saying against him is really a lie. ‘
Fuentes was arraigned on Wednesday in Columbus, where he faces a charge associated with felony first-degree rape of the child under 13. His bail was set at $2 million.
Telemundo reporter Marí a Vargas-Pion frequented the Columbus residence in which the 10-year-old rape victim and her mother allegedly live on Wednesday.
A lady claiming to be the girl’s mother hid behind her front door as she defended Fuentes.
