Indictment: Abilene man had sex with teenage girl, might have gotten her pregnant

ABILENE, Texas - An Abilene man, accused of having sex with a teenage girl and possibly getting her pregnant, was indicted Thursday by a Taylor County grand jury.

Michael Shane Hoelscher, 43, was indicted on three counts of sexual assault of a child and one count of indecency with a child by contact.

According to the indictment, Hoelscher first had sex with the 14-year-old in August 2014. The last time was after the Super Bowl in February 2015.

Hoelscher was concerned he might have gotten her pregnant. So, he bought a pregnancy test and made the victim take it. She said Hoelscher told her it was positive and they stopped having sex.

A couple of weeks later, the girl started having stomach cramps. That’s when she told her mom that she and Hoelscher had been having sex and that she might be pregnant.

The indictment does not say whether the victim actually was pregnant.

Hoelscher had not been arrested for the alleged crimes as of Thursday afternoon. The mugshot is from a 2001 arrest for possession of marijuana.
