A woman was horrified to learn that her husband was having sex with her 12-year-old daughter.

Sadly, he was stopped only after the girl got pregnant.

39-year-old Leonel Bartolo Rodriguez, was arrested in New York, on charges that he assaulted and impregnated the 12-year-old girl.

Rodriguez was arraigned in the Superior Court in Stamford, Connecticut, after he was extradited from New York were he worked at a pizza shop.

The sexual assault was uncovered after the girl began complaining of cramps, and a medical examination determined that she was pregnant.

The doctor notified the Connecticut Department of Children and Families. The next day, the girl went to Queens, New York, to visit family, and she told a relative that Rodriguez had sexually abused her on several occasions. She said that it was he who got her pregnant.

The family member alerted police, and Rodriguez was arrested. Rodriguez was charged with first-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor. He is being held on $100,000 cash bail.
