Oklahoma police have arrested a mother after her 12-year-old daughter gave birth to a 24-year-old man’s baby.
The woman, Desiree Castaneda, and other family members were aware of the victim’s relationship with Juan Miranda-Jara, 24, according to the Tulsa Police Department.
According to police, the underage victim was even given a baby shower.
“The family permitted the relationship, and there are photos of the family throwing a baby shower for the victim and the suspect,” the Tulsa Police Department said in a statement posted on Facebook.
Desiree Castaneda is accused of aiding child sexual abuse and neglect.
Jara, the girl’s father, was arrested on July 14 at the hospital where he was with her when she went into labor.
