January 17, 2017 – Guatemalan Man Jailed For Life For Impregnating 10 Year Old Girl In Miami Florida
Mr Rony Mendez, a 26-year-old Guatemalan man based in Miami Florida has been handed a life sentence for allegedly impregnating a 10-year-old girl in November 2014.
Though he initially fled to his native country of Guatemala, a DNA test conducted on the minor confirmed him as the father of the baby born in May 2015.
He was later extradited to the US last summer.
After a 3-day trial, Mendez was found guilty of three counts of sexual battery on a child under 12 and subsequently jailed for life.
