A 39-year-old Milwaukee man is accused of having sex with a ten-year-old girl — and getting her pregnant. The accused is Darrick Guider. He faces a charge of first-degree sexual assault of a child under the age of 12.
According to the criminal complaint, the victim moved into a relative’s home where Guider lived in June 2014.
The victim told police that “one night, shortly after she moved into this home, she was watching television upstairs in a room. She was lying on the bed when the defendant came in. The defendant told her that ‘this is how [you] make money.’” The complaint then indicates the victim “tried to get her (relative’s) attention by screaming, but the defendant put his hand over her mouth.” Guider then allegedly assaulted the girl.
The complaint says the victim “recalls various instances” where Guider attempted to have sex with her. The complaint also says the victim told her relative in December that Guider had been “messing with her.” But the relative apparently did not believe the victim.
In January, the complaint says the relative took the girl to a pediatrician who then said she should immediately take the girl to Children’s Hospital. The relative did not act on this advice. In March, another relative noticed the girl “appeared pregnant.” A visit to Mt. Sinai Hospital confirmed the girl was indeed pregnant — and due “at the end of May or the beginning of June.”
If convicted, Guider faces up to 60 years in prison.
