Cover Issue 840This is one of many stories in this week’s edition of The Jail Report, in stores now.

The crime only came to light last year because the girl’s parents noticed she was gaining weight and became concerned. They took her to the hospital last May and discovered she was pregnant, a sheriff’s report says.

That’s when the young girl revealed that Spann had been molesting her for months, since December 2015, a report says.

“She was afraid to tell because the subject told the victim she would get in trouble,” a report says.

A warrant accuses Spann of engaging in sexual battery by having sexual intercourse with a 12-year-old girl at a home in Trenton.

The condition of the girl or her baby are unclear.
