Collin County prosecutors said in a statement Friday that 37-year-old Roli Lopez-Sanchez of Plano had been found guilty of continuous sexual abuse of a child. He won’t be eligible for parole or good time credit.

Prosecutors say medical workers notified police in February 2018 after the pregnant victim came to their office.

Lopez-Sanchez had ongoing access to the girl at the time. Child Protective Services investigated and removed her and her siblings from the home.

Authorities say the girl was 12 when she gave birth over the summer, and a DNA sample confirmed that Lopez-Sanchez was the infant’s father.

Lopez-Sanchez, jailed since his February 2018 arrest, also faced a federal immigration detainer.

Collin County District Attorney Greg Willis said justice had been served.

“This innocent child showed remarkable courage by naming the monster who assaulted her; he will never harm another child again,” he said.
