November 20, 2018

BRIDGEPORT - A 21-year-old city man is facing 18 months in prison after he pleaded guilty Monday to sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl he met over social media, getting her pregnant and giving her a venereal disease.

Hasan Khalid, of Spring Street, pleaded guilty to two counts of fourth-degree sexual assault and one count of reckless endangerment.

He is scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 15.

Police said last year girl complained that she had tested positive for both being pregnant and having Chlamydia and that she had been sexually assaulted by Khalid.

The girl said she had been contacted by Khalid over social media and agreed to come to his home to “chill,” police said.

But police said when the girl got to Khalid’s home he pulled her clothes off and sexually assaulted her. She said he laughed as she tearfully protested the assault.

Police said when the girl later told Khalid she was pregnant he again laughed at her.

When officers confronted Khalid with the girl’s allegations police said he responded: “Well, I have a lot of girls, like all the time, but I never met any girl by (the victim’s name).”

Police said the girl has since terminated her pregnancy.
