CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A man has pled guilty to impregnating a 10-year-old girl.

Michael Chaffer, 41, was sentenced to 28 years behind bars.

Chaffer was indicted last year on two counts of rape and one count of felonious assault. Investigators say the victim was Chaffer's girlfriend's daughter. She was 11 years old when she gave birth in November of 2007.

Prosecutors say a DNA sample taken from the child and Chaffer showed there was a 99.9% chance that he is the father.

According to the prosecutor's office, between the dates of Sept. 8, 2006 and Nov. 4, 2007, chaffer repeatedly raped the girl.

The girl has been living with relatives while the baby was taken into foster care.
