OPTIMA, Okla. — An Optima man is now charged with rape in the second degree after allegedly having sexual affairs with a child under the age of 15, according to court documents. 
Juan Perez, 23, was taken into custody earlier this month after the Department of Human Services (DHS) contacted police. According to documents obtained from the Texas County Court Clerk’s Office, DHS informed the Texas County Sheriff’s Department that Perez was living with the juvenile child, and she was pregnant with his child. 
After officers traveled to Optima, it was confirmed that the juvenile was three months pregnant, and Perez was the father, court documents noted. Perez had been living with the juvenile and her family for three months, and he was their only source of income.
Perez remains behind bars at the Texas County Detention Center on an Immigration and Customs Enforcement hold and a $40,000 bond with the condition he have no contact with the victim. If convicted, Perez faces up to 15 years in prison and a fine up to $10,000.
