BELTON, Texas (KWTX) Filberto Garcia Lopez, 28, of Round Rock, who’s accused of impregnating a 15-year-old girl in 2016 was held Monday in the Bell County Jail, charged with sexual assault of a child.

Bond on the charge was set at $100,000.

He’s also held without bond on a probation revocation motion, according to online jail records.

Bell County deputies arrested Lopez on Friday on a warrant stemming from an investigation that started in April 2017 when the girl’s grandmother reported that her granddaughter, who became pregnant in June 2016, told her she had sex with Lopez in June 2016 at his home on West Drive in Bell County, an arrest warrant affidavit says.

Investigators obtained a search warrant for Lopez’s DNA in May and took a DNA sample in June, the affidavit says.

The DNA sample and a sample from the infant were sent to a forensic lab for testing and the results indicated “that Lopez cannot be excluded as the biological father of the child and that 99.99 percent of them male population is excluded from the possibility of being the biological father of (the girl’s) child,” the affidavit says.
