A 60-year-old man in Jacksonville, Florida, has been charged with sexual abuse after reportedly getting a 12-year-old girl pregnant.

According to reports, Walter Johnson has been charged with three counts of sexual battery on a minor and is being held on a $1.5 million bond. Reports say Johnson was accused of sexually assaulting the 12-year-old numerous times before it was confirmed the young girl was pregnant during medical tests on Dec. 31.

Upon finding out the girl was pregnant, Johnson reportedly called 911 and threatened to take his own life before police officers were able to successfully detain him. Although the 60-year-old denies the allegations against him, the young girl says Johnson performed multiple kinds of sex on her, and authorities say she was impregnated at the beginning of October.

Johnson reportedly told police he is mentally ill, suffering from schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, and also admitted to not taking his medication.

The young victim is reportedly in the custody of her family.
