It's an unbelievable story that has an entire community shocked. According to a credible source, a 10-year-old St. Anthony girl has given birth to a baby. Court documents confirm that a St. Anthony man is in jail for raping the 10-year-old girl.
According to Idaho's Bureau of Vital Statistics, this is the first 10-year-old to give birth in Idaho for at least 20 years.
Guadelupe Gutierrez-Juarez has been charged with raping the young girl. Gutierrez-Juarez has been in the Fremont County Jail since April 29.
St. Anthony Police said they were notified of the young girl's pregnancy by medical personnel after she went in for treatment at a doctor's office.
Neighbors who live near Gutierrez-Juarez are in shock as news of the young girl's pregnancy spreads.
"To think this happens next to you, on your block is just incredible," said one neighbor.
"That girl is just a baby, she shouldn't be having a baby," said another neighbor, Becky Clements.
According to a credible source, the young girl gave birth to a 6-pound baby through a C-Section at Madison Memorial Hospital.
"I have grand children that's that age. It's horrifying," exclaimed Clements.
Neighbors say they believe Gutierrez-Juarez lives in his west St. Anthony house with several children. There is a swing set and multiple bikes in the front yard.
Police have not released the relationship between Gutierrez Juarez and his victim.
Gutierrez Juarez is being held on a $250,000 bond. If convicted, he faces life in prison.
Police are tight lipped about the case. They would not confirm the 10-year-old gave birth because they say they want to protect her identity.
Gutierrez-Juarez will be in court May 13 for a preliminary hearing.
