A 31-year-old St. Petersburg man was arrested Christmas Day on charges he had sex with a teenage girl in August.
Police said Payton J. Harris denied having sex with the girl last summer, but a forensic report completed in October indicated otherwise. The girl is four months pregnant, according to an arrest affidavit that identifies Harris as the father.
According to the report, Harris acknowledged the pregnancy and indicated he was the father in Facebook messages. Police said the girl and her family will seek prosecution.
Harris was charged with unlawful sexual activity with a minor and was booked into the Pinellas County Jail, where he remained Thursday without bail.
