Well this is eyebrow raising!
Last month, a twelve year old entered a midtown Tulsa hospital already in labor and gave birth to a twenty-four year old man’s child. “They walked in just like any other couple would, excited to deliver their newborn child,” said a Tulsa Police spokesman.
Hospital staff were appalled at the scenario and immediately called the Tulsa Police, which resulted in the arrest of 24 year old, Juan Miranda-Jara. Many questions were then raised regarding the parent’s whereabouts and today the GPS led us straight to Tulsa County Jail where the mom, Desireee Castaneda, sits behind bars facing charges of neglect and enabling child abuse. The young girl’s father reportedly already serving a 12 year prison sentence for an unrelated rape charge.
Apparently the family saw nothing wrong with the relationship between the twelve year old and adult male.
“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,” officials say.
Both Miranda-Jara and Castaneda are being held on $50k bond, while the 12 year old and newborn remain in custody of state health officials.
