CABOT, Vermont (AP) - A 31-year-old Cabot man has been accused of sexually assaulting and impregnating a girl under the age of 16 who was taken to the hospital after giving birth alone.

State police say the Department of Children and Families began investigating on Friday when the girl was hospitalized after having an unattended birth and having received no prenatal care. Authorities say detectives determined that Richard Danner is the baby’s father and had been sexually assaulting the girl over an extended period of time.

Danner is being held on $50,000 bail and is set to appear in court Monday on a charge of aggravated felonious sexual assault of a child, and officials say more charges are possible.

It was not immediately known Sunday whether he has an attorney.
