A Cobb County man is accused of raping and impregnating his 11-year-old distant cousin, according to Smyrna police.
Martin Nolasco, 21, is being held without bond in the Cobb County jail since his arrest last week, booking records show.
Nolasco, of Smyrna, has been charged with aggravated child molestation, two counts of felony child molestation and statutory rape for allegedly having sex with an 11-year-old, according to an arrest warrant obtained by the AJC.
The three alleged assaults happened between Jan. 1 and Feb. 14 at Nolasco's apartment, the warrant states.
When the girl started feeling ill at school, family members took her to the doctor, Officer Michael Smith with Smyrna police told the AJC. A doctor confirmed the girl's pregnancy last week, Smith said.
Nolasco is also being held on an immigration violation, jail records show.
