Krebs man guilty of rape; child victim pregnant

MCALESTER, Okla. — A Krebs man who was in the country illegally has pleaded guilty to raping and impregnating an 11-year-old girl.

The man entered his plea Monday and was sentenced to 25 years in prison. On Wednesday, Pittsburg County District Attorney Farley Ward told the McAlester News-Capital that DNA test results show the defendant had gotten the child pregnant.

The Associated Press isn't naming the man because doing so could identify the victim.

The man was first arrested in 2011 for assault and transferred to Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody. He was deported later that year, but Oklahoma prosecutors put out an arrest warrant for him.

He was found in Arizona in November and tied to the Oklahoma warrant.

He is now in the Pittsburg County Jail awaiting transfer to prison.
