Deputies arrested a 20-year-old man from Pharr after he admitted to having sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old girl, according to the criminal complaint against him.
Jose Antonio Cazares Alvarado, 20, of Pharr was charged with sexual assault, a second-degree felony, on Thursday.
An investigation began on May 22, 2017, when the girl's mother reported to police that her daughter was five months pregnant with Alvarado's baby.
During an interview with investigators, Alvarado "provided a statement in which he admits to having sexual intercourse with the female juvenile," according to the criminal complaint.
Alvarado was released from the Hidalgo County jail Thursday and couldn't be reached for comment.
