Teen Accused of Impregnating 11 Year-Old Relative Arrested

The victim was being treated for an unrelated illness when doctors at Stamford Hospital discovered that she was pregnant, according to police.


A 15 year-old Stamford resident was arrested Thursday night for the alleged sexual assault of his 11 year-old relative that resulted in her becoming pregnant, according to Sgt. Joseph Kennedy.

The victim, Sgt. Kennedy said, was brought to Stamford Hospital in early June to be treated for an unrelated illness when her doctors discovered the pregnancy and contacted the department. The victim, who is also a Stamford resident and lives with the suspect, was later transported to Yale-New Haven Hospital for further treatment of the unrelated illness, Kennedy said.

Following an investigation, the suspect, whose name has not been released because he is minor, was charged with first-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor. He is currently being held at a Bridgeport detention center.

The exact length and extent of the alleged abuse has not yet been determined, Sgt. Kennedy said.

Did anyone consider the fact that her body isn't formed to give birth yet? This is not only about choices it is about her health (physical and emotional) and not being developed to deliver a baby yet.

To Ellen, who said "most women who have had abortions regret them later in life. I sure did." How on earth can you speak for 'most women'? I highly doubt you're right. All the women I know do NOT regret it, though they're hardly cavalier about the experience. Do you wish you hadn't had a CHOICE?

I think at the end of the day, what's the most disturbing topic is that she LIVES in the house with this person. Now who knows under what circumstances these 2 very young people had sex, although some form of rape will probably be a factor. Being pregnant aside this young 11 yr old girl will forever have to live with the fact that this happened to her & by someone whom she believed to be trust-worthy. No matter her choice, and yes it should be HER CHOICE with the guidance of parental control, she is forever going to have problems in life. At 11 her innosence of childhood was stripped from her & she can never get that back. So as we battle between pro-life or pro-choice, I'm sitting back silently praying that she can come out on the other side of this & live some trace of a normal life without that feeling of guilt that is often associated with rape on the behalf of the victim. And she's just that, a victim, no matter which way you slice or dice it...

Why did you idiots turn this into an abortion debate. The only thing I hate more than pro-life people are those that think everything needs be a soapbox. This is a terrible story not a rallying cry for your causes.

People let this topic be as sensitive as it is. We are talking an 11 year old here, all she needs is something to enchore herself on. Young girl don't live in the past, be positive about life. From: master
