Miranda-Jara told officers that he has been “in a relationship” with the pregnant girl since October, police said in a news release.
The age of consent in Oklahoma is 16.
“They walked in just like any other couple would excite to deliver their newborn child,” Officer Danny Bean told FOX23.
According to the outlet, investigators believe Miranda-Jara was fully expecting to go home with the girl and the newborn baby as if he had done nothing illegal. While the relationship between Miranda-Jara and the girl is unclear, Bean said that police “don’t believe this is incest at this time.”
“We don’t get this kind of call every day,” Bean said. “It certainly was a surprise for everyone involved.”
