Father of pregnant 12-year-old faces court
A Groningen court on Thursday began proceedings in a case against the father of a 12-year-old girl who gave birth on a primary school trip. The man has confessed to impregnating his daughter.
The girl did not know she was pregnant until she experienced abdominal cramps during a March school trip. Shortly after giving birth to a baby girl, her father confessed and was taken into custody.
The young mother and her child are currently in the custody of the Dutch youth care agency. She has another sibling, a brother, who lives in a foster home.
