Ill. man gets 120 days in jail for impregnating 13-year-old

QUINCY, Ill. (AP) - A western Illinois man has been sentenced to 120 days in jail and three years of probation for impregnating a girl when she was 13 years old.

The Quincy Herald-Whig reports that 21-year-old Caleb Veihl must register as a sex offender as part of his sentence in Adams County.

Veihl pleaded guilty in February to a charge of aggravated criminal sexual assault.

Prosecutors say that the investigation began in September 2012 when a Quincy schools employee notified police that an eighth-grade student was pregnant and indicated Veihl was the fetus' father.

Authorities say Veihl denied having had sex with the girl, though paternity testing confirmed after the child was born that Veihl was the father.

Veihl was charged last August.
