As a result of the sexual battery, the victim became pregnant and gave birth to a baby girl in September 2017.

DNA testing, conducted by Florida Department of Law Enforcement, proved that Hernandez is the biological father of the child.

He was arrested on Wednesday and charged with Sexual Battery and Child Abuse (Impregnation).
