A Winton Hills man was indicted Monday after police said he raped and impregnated a 12-year-old girl.
Tevin Henderson, 22, is charged with five counts of rape. If convicted on all counts, he faces 55 years in prison.
Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said Henderson raped the girl repeatedly at a Winton Terrace apartment in 2019.
The child disclosed to a trusted adult when she realized that she was pregnant, according to a press release from the prosecutor’s office.
“There are no words to describe this kind of horrible crime against a child,” Deters said. “It makes me sick to my stomach. To prey upon a young girl sexually, impregnate her, and think nothing of it is disgusting and should be totally unacceptable to everyone who hears of these acts.”
Deters said cases like these are “much too prevalent” in our area and nationwide. He said his office is planning to work diligently to convict Henderson.
Henderson is being held at the Hamilton County Justice Center on a $250,000 bond. The next hearing in his case is scheduled for Sept. 25.
Henderson’s lawyer, James Costin, declined to comment on the indictment.
