A 41-year-old Florida man has been accused of the incestuous rape and impregnation of a 13-year-old girl. According to KIRO 7, the man told police that “voodoo” made him have sex with the child.
‘…during a post-Miranda interview with [Jean Innocent], he stated that he believes VOODOO caused him’ to rape the girl, the arrest report obtained by West Palm Beach police investigators.
West Palm Beach police officers arrested the 41-year-old, named Jean Innocent, on December 19.
Jean Innocent, 41, remains in Palm Beach County Jail on one charge of incest, impregnation of a child, and two counts of sexual battery of a child in familial or custodial care.
The arrest was made after the 13-year-old girl was taken to St. Mary’s hospital for abdominal pain. Doctors discovered that the child was six weeks pregnant.
The 13-year-old told police that Jean sexually abused her on four separate occasions since 2020. The most last instance of abuse occurred as recently as November, as reported by WPEC.
The child told police that Innocent entered her bedroom and said, “Give me 10 minutes.”
He began to have intercourse with the child who started crying and said ‘no.’ The 13-year-old told police that Innocent then stopped and said ‘never mind.’
Police listened in on a call between the girl and Innocent in which she described to him how she had been throwing up and that the hospital would test to see if she was pregnant.
He told her ‘to say no and to say she had a relationship with a boy named ‘Semen.’
The report reads that Innocent later said that ‘he believes his pre-ejaculation could have caused her to become pregnant.’
He also blamed voodoo as the reason he raped the girl and admitted to raping her twice.
His bond is $28,000.
