LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A 38-year-old Lincoln man has been charged with sexually assaulting a girl, leading to her pregnancy.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/2fChvp5 ) that the then-13-year-old girl reported in 2013 that a man had assaulted her, but would not provide the man’s identity. The sexual assault resulted in a pregnancy, which the girl terminated.

In May, the girl reported to police that the man had her contacted her online, and she identified him as Floyd Coleman.

Lincoln police interviewed Coleman on Oct. 3, and he denied having sex with the girl. But court documents say a DNA test confirmed he was the father of the fetus.

Prosecutors charged Coleman on Wednesday with first-degree child sexual assault. He remained jailed Saturday on $250,000 bail and could not be reached for comment.
