LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A 29-year-old Lafayette man is accused of getting a 13-year-old girl pregnant. Levi Hale has been charged with child molesting.

On Jan. 5, Lafayette police interviewed the girl who said she and Hale had sex at his home in November.

Court documents said the pregnancy was medically terminated a few days later. A DNA sample later showed Hale was the biological father. 

Hale was arrested Monday and, as of Wednesday morning, is in the Tippecanoe County Jail.
