Darrick Guider, 39, of Milwaukee, has been arrested and charged with raping and impregnating a 10-year-old girl. He faces first-degree sexual assault charges.
The unnamed 10-year-old girl was finally able to tell doctors what happened when they discovered that the young girl had become pregnant.
Guider was staying in her home as a family friend when he began raping the girl.
The girl told police that “one night, shortly after she moved into this home, she was watching television upstairs in a room. She was lying on the bed when the defendant came in. The defendant told her that ‘this is how (you) make money.’” The girl tried to “get her (relative’s) attention by screaming, but the defendant put his hand over her mouth.”
Guider then reportedly raped her.
Before the incident, the victim told her relative that Guider had attempted to have sex with her several times, but the relative did not believe her.
In January, the girl was taken to a pediatrician, who referred her to Children’s Hospital. The relative decided not to take her to the hospital.
In March, another family member noticed that the girl looked pregnant. She was taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital, where physicians confirmed she was pregnant and due “at the end of May or the beginning of June.”
Guilder will be facing up to 60 years in prison for his crimes.
No word yet on whether or not the family has been charged for putting the girl in danger.
