COBB COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

A Cobb County man has been sentenced to serve 20 years for impregnating a 13-year-old girl.

On Thursday, a jury convicted Cesar Solis, 43, after a three-day trial.

Senior Assistant District Attorney Eleanor Odom prosecuted the case.

According to the district attorney, Solis was living with the victim's family in Austell in 2012.

The victim told police that Solis forced her to have sex one morning while she was preparing for school and that he threatened her not to tell anyone.

When the victim discovered she was pregnant, she told her mother, and after a police investigation, Solis was charged with rape.

After the victim gave birth, tests showed Solis fathered the child.

At trial, the defense argued that the girl and Solis were having a relationship and that there was no force.

Jurors convicted Solis of the lesser-included crime of statutory rape and was sentenced to serve 20 years in prison.

Solis has been held without bond since his arrest Dec. 25, 2012. He also had an immigration hold on his release.
