A 33-year-old man from upstate New York is facing sexual assault charges after claiming it was his clothing that got an 11-year-old girl pregnant.
After a DNA test determined that Robert Cronin was the baby’s father, Cronin didn’t dispute the results, but insisted he never had sex with the child, a report said. “I don’t want to be known for a crime I didn’t commit,” he told WRBG-TV. Cronin claimed the girl became pregnant after coming in contact with clothing he had used while masturbating. He said that he realizes his story may be difficult for some to understand but said the police who arrested him were just lacking scientific knowledge.
