They share a beautiful nine month old baby girl together, but according to the law a crime was committed and the child was conceived by a then 15 year-old child and her adult boyfriend.
25 year-old Gilbert Perez is behind bars charged with sexual assault of a child and continuous sexual assault of a young child, both charges refer to one victim, a 16 year-old girl. Police say the two met several years ago, before the child was a teen, and that's when the sexual relationship started.
The girl and Perez have been living in this house for the past three years and in the last year had their daughter. One of the big problems, the teen would have been only 13 years-old when the two moved in together, not of age to a make a decision to be engaged in a common-law marriage.
Child Protective Services got involved and informed Brownsville police after the girl had her baby nine months ago. Perez has been given a total of 150,000 dollar bond on the two counts and ordered by the judge to stay away from the teen.
