ROGERS, Ark. (AP) _ An 18-year-old Rogers man has been arrested
on a rape charge after his 13-year-old girlfriend became pregnant.
Santiago Garcia-Pina is charged with the felony and was released
from jail on a ten-thousand dollar bond. The seventh-grade girl was
living with Garcia-Pina and his parents when police questioned him
earlier this month.
Garcia-Pina told police he had sex with his girlfriend of two
years a few days after she turned 13. He told police they had sex
because they wanted to get her pregnant so that her parents would
let her continue to live with him.
