QUINCY, Ill. (AP) - A western Illinois man faces sentencing in April now that he has admitted impregnating a girl when she was 13 years old.

The Quincy Herald-Whig (https://bit.ly/1h3LdQ4 ) reports that 21-year-old Caleb Veihl pleaded guilty Friday in Adams County Circuit Court to a charge of aggravated criminal sexual assault.

Prosecutors say that the investigation began in September 2012 when a Quincy schools employee notified police that an eighth-grade student, then 13, was pregnant and indicated Veihl was the fetus’ father.

Authorities say Veihl denied having had sex with the girl, though paternity testing confirmed after the child was born that Veihl was the father.

Veihl was charged last August.

He’s free on bond and scheduled for sentencing on April 3.
