The family of a 12-year-old girl impregnated by a man twice her age “permitted” the relationship and even celebrated her pregnancy with a baby shower, according to Oklahoma police.
Shortly after the young girl showed up to an area hospital pregnant, police said they were told she had possibly been raped. Investigators took Miranda-Jara into questioning and, as the girl was in labor, he admitted that the child was his, police say, and that he had been “in a relationship” with the girl since October 2020.
But a question lingered, police said: “Where were the parents?”
Tulsa Police announced the arrest of the victim’s mother Desiree Castaneda on Thursday.
What I want to know is how ANY of these people thought this was okay.
