A Worthington Police detective received a call Friday from the Nobles County Community Services in regards to an underage girl who had just given birth to a child. She was unaware that she was pregnant at the time and reported sex multiple times with Edin Cax Lopez.
The uderage female victim named the child’s dad as Edin Cax Lopez. He was 21 at the time and she was under 16. Cax Lopez signed the birth certificate.
Afterwards, Cax Lopez told police officers he couldn’t believe he was being arrested because the underage girl had consensual sex with him. However, in Minnesota, a minor under the age of 16 cannot legally consent. He admitted he knew the girl was still in school, but he did not know her exact age.
Both the underage victim and Cax Lopez provided DNA evidence.
Cax Lopez was arrested and then charged with criminal sexual conduct.
