Springfield Man Accused Of Impregnating Teen

By Lynne Roberts. CREATED Aug 19, 2014

A man from Springfield has been charged with repeatedly sexually abusing and eventually impregnating the daughter of a woman he had been dating. 

Epifanio Chaidez, 36, is facing three counts each of rape and sodomy. 

Prosecutors said he started abusing the girl when she was nine-years-old.  She gave birth to a child when she was 16, according to court documents.  A paternity test revealed Chaidez was the father. 

He's being held in the Greene County Jail on a $50,000 bond.
