A 61-year-old man has been charged after police said he sexually assaulted an 11-year-old girl, that is now pregnant.

According to CBS Austin, the girl told her parents that 61-year-old Mike Hernandez Sr. fathered the baby after molesting the girl in the same bedroom where he slept with his wife.

Hernandez is now charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child. The girl’s father said she is about five to six months pregnant.

He is now out of jail on bond.

Hernandez’s attorney said his bond was lowered from $250,000 to $100,000 on the condition that he moved away from school zones. He was currently living near a middle and elementary school.

He is also required to wear a GPS ankle monitor and was ordered to stay away from guns and cannot be around children without supervision.

CBS Austin said the victim’s family is not satisfied with the result and said more needs to be done.

Hernandez’s next court appearance is scheduled for Feb. 20.
