Daytona Beach, Florida (The Weekly Vice) - Willie Martin, a 50-year-old Florida man, was arrested Friday for allegedly having sex with a 14-year-old girl and getting her pregnant while the girl's mother thought it was a joke.
According to the Daytona Police Department, Martin had been having sex with the girl since she was 12. The now 14-year-old girl gave birth to a boy in June 2009. The teen told Children's Advocacy Center counselors that Martin began molesting her when she was 12 and later progressed to intercourse.
Investigators say, a friend of the victim’s mother told her she saw Martin kiss the victim on the mouth. She said the girl's mother treated the whole thing as a joke. Investigators were then called about the sexual abuse last May when the same friend informed authorities of the victim's pregnancy.
When investigators interviewed the victim, she was already eight months pregnant. She was taken from her mother's house just days before the baby's birth.
When the victim was asked if she knew why she was being taken out of the home, the girl replied, "Because her (my mother's) boyfriend raped me.”
Martin had dated the victim's mother off and on for several years and had lived with the girl and her mother for 12 years.
Martin was booked into the Volusia County Branch jail on charges of unlawful sexual activity with a certain minor and lewd and lascivious molestation of a person 12 to 16 years of age, both first-degree felonies. He is being held without bail.
