Authorities have arrested a 29-year-old man suspected of sneaking into the home of a 15-year-old girl and impregnating her.
Court documents show that the man, Mark Anthony Pettet, met the teenager about two years ago before they began having intercourse.
Pettet first met the 15-year-old girl at a community swimming pool a couple of years ago. The teenage girl told investigators that she exchanged numbers with the man and that they started "dating" about six months later.
The affidavit shows that things started out with simple conversation. The teen stated that she would talk to older man about her classes at her high school before things progressed. It wasn't long before Pettet began sneaking into her home while her parents were sleeping.
The teenager claimed that they started talking about having sexual relations. Pettet reportedly told her that he would only have sex with her if she wanted to and that he wouldn't "force her into doing so."
The girl told authorities that she agreed to have sex with Pettet. She eventually found out that she was pregnant. The affidavit shows that the teenager purchased four home pregnancy tests and they all showed that she was pregnant.
Investigators questioned Pettet and he admitted back in March that he had been involved in a sexual relationship with the 15-year-old girl. Pettet told investigators that he believed he was the biological father of her child.
Pettet was taken into custody on a $60,000 bond. He was charged with sexual assault of a child.
Pettet's arrest for impregnating a 15-year-old girl comes on the heels of another sickening crime. A Ohio man was arrested for having sex with 14-year-old twins and their 12-year-old sister.
The man, 34-year-old Arnold Perry, had no place to stay and the mother of the girls allowed him to live with them. Perry not only raped the woman's three daughters, but also got all three of the girls pregnant. One of the twins had an abortion, but the other two girls were too far along in their pregnancies. Their mother has been left caring for the two children.
Perry was sentenced to 27-years in prison.
