A man in Nebraska, admitted in court that he impregnated his 13-years-old foster daughter, but he denies raping her.
Brandon Weathers, 38, of Omaha, was arrested after his victim told police that she had sex with her foster father many times.
The girl said that she had sex with Weathers, even after she was removed from his home by child protective services. She claims that Weathers tracked her down as she bounced from one foster home to another.
Weathers, who is representing himself at trial, said that he never had sex with the girl, but he did admit impregnating her with a syringe because she wanted a baby.
Weathers told the court that he should not be charged with first-degree sexual assault of a child, but rather with “child abuse or something.”
The incident came to light when the girl discovered she was pregnant. However, she suffered a miscarriage. Investigators who were already alerted to the sexual abuse, collected the tissue samples from the fetus.
Tests showed that the tissue contained DNA from the girl and Weathers, according to Prosecutor Brenda Beadle.
