CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - An illegal immigrant is accused of impregnating a 13-year-old girl whose family took him in when he moved to Ohio.

According to Hamilton County court documents, Estuardo Ruiz, 19, moved in with a family from a Lockland, Ohio church. Ruiz became sexually active with the family's 13-year-old daughter, impregnating her. The baby is due in October 2010.

The girl's parents forced him to move out when they learned of the pregnancy.

Court records indicate Ruiz did not know how old the girl was. He wrote a confession with the assistance of an interpreter, because he does not speak English. Police say he is here illegally.

He is charged with one count of Unlawful Sexual Contact with a Minor. His bond was set at $20,000.
