Juan Miranda-Jara was arrested and charged with rape earlier this month when he brought the pregnant 12-year-old to a hospital. People reports that her 33-year-old mother has been arrested on counts of child neglect and enabling child sex abuse, per the Tulsa Police department.
"At the time, we received many questions along the lines of, ‘Where were the parents?’" wrote the Tulsa Police Department in a post on Facebook. "The investigation revealed that the victim's mother and family members were aware of the relationship between the victim and Miranda-Jara. The family permitted the relationship, and there are photos of the family throwing a baby shower for the victim and the suspect.”
Police initially said it was unclear whether the 12-year-old’s parents were aware of the relationship. When authorities greeted the man at the hospital after staff reported the pregnancy, Miranda-Jara admitted he was the biological father of the baby.
