A Plano man was sentenced to 60 years for continuous sexual abuse of a child after an 11-year-old disclosed that he sexually assaulted her and she was 19 weeks pregnant.  

The Collin County District Attorney's Office said that Roli Lopez-Sanchez was found guilty and sentenced to 60 years in prison without parole. 

Medical officials notified the office of the abuse after the 11-year-old said that Lopez had sexually assaulted her and had "ongoing access to the child." 

The child gave birth in the summer of 2018, at the age of 12. DNA samples taken of the baby confirmed Lopez as the father. 

“This innocent child showed remarkable courage by naming the monster who assaulted her. He will never harm another child again,” said District Attorney Greg Willis.
