Father imprisoned 25 years for impregnating daughter
January 29, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

A Guatemalan man who prosecutors say impregnated his 12-year-old daughter five years ago and fled the country when Redwood City police contacted by abortion providers asked him for a DNA sample was sentenced Tuesday to 25 years in prison.

The 40-year-old man, who the Daily Journal is not naming as not to identify his daughter, pleaded no contest in December to three counts of forcible child molestation rather than stand trial and face a life sentence. In return, he was offered a flat 25-year prison term along with lifetime registration as a sex offender and standard court fines and fees.

He must serve 85 percent of the sentence before being eligible for parole. He has credit of 1,454 days.

Police originally interviewed the man about his daughter’s pregnancy in December 2007 after he brought the girl to San Mateo Medical Center for an abortion. Hospital staff contacted authorities who were told by both him and the girl that a fellow 12-year-old named “Giovanni” was the father. When police asked for a genetic sample to test, the father said he wanted time to consider the request and the next day fled back to Guatemala, according to prosecutors.

The girl later told police her father had impregnated her and she had made up the story of the boy to protect him and not upset her mother. Redwood City police ultimately found the father in Guatemala and had him deported back in late 2012.
