Indictment: Abilene man met girl, 16, on Facebook, got her pregnant

Gerland Lacy Jr.

An Abilene man – accused of getting a teenage girl pregnant – was indicted Thursday for sex assault of a child.

The 16-year-old victim told police she met Gerald Dean Lacy, Jr. – who was 21 at the time -- on Facebook “where they communicated for a while and where her birthday is listed.”

According to the indictment, Lacy and the girl had sex at an apartment in July 2016. The victim “discovered she was pregnant in late August or early September.”

Lacy – who was not willing to meet with the detective – was arrested last month.
