Mora was reportedly babysitting the 13-year-old girl in February at her home in Kensington, where he allegedly forced the victim to have sex with him.
The girl, whom police said that the “intellect of a first grader” and can only communicate via gestures and writing,” tested positive when she took a pregnancy test in April, the news outlet reported. Staff of a nearby medical center confirmed she was 11 weeks pregant.

Mora was allegedly held for seven weeks at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility in Clarksburg after a district court judge denied his bond.
In May, his lawyer filed a “motion to reconsider bond, and on June 1, Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge Steven Salant granted Mora a personal exploration bond, to the station.
The personal recognizance bond would have allowed Mora to leave the prison without putting up money in the framework of a deal that he would appear in the future in the courtroom. However, as a result of a detainer from the U.s. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the local police gave him to the federal officials on 6 June.

Jose Campos, Mora’s lawyer, told WJLA his client is innocent, and said Mora “willingly submitted to a DNA test and he is hopeful that this DNA test is going to delete everything.”
Results for a paternity test were still pending, according to the report.
Mora is scheduled to appear in Montgomery County Circuit Court in October for a three-day trial. He reportedly faces up to 60 years in prison.
