Man Behind Bars After Impregnating Teen

A Springfield man is in the Greene County Jail after he reportedly impregnated a 16-year-old girl.

Dennis Michael Robinson is facing charges of statutory rape in the second degree. He is in the Greene County Jail pending a bond hearing on October 16.

Police were alerted to the rape after an anonymous tip was posted in an online chatroom for homeschooling. The father of the teen was contacted who said he thought Robinson was the baby’s father.

A DNA test confirmed Robinson was the baby’s father.

The incident took place in November 2018.
