9 yr old Mexican girl who got pregnant may actually be 15

afne, the nine-year-old girl who gave birth to a baby in Mexico is suspected to be almost certainly far older than her mother claimed and could be 15 or more.

In a press conference last night Antonio Munoz Serrano, the health commissioner for the state of Jarisco, said: 'The medical characteristics of this child do not correspond to those of a nine-year-old girl.

'She could be much older than that, it appears she is more than 15-years-old.'

He added that in the end there could be a 'great responsibility' on Dafne's family for the entire episode and that the damage to the girl could be 'incalcuable'.

The shocking disclosure, if true, raises huge questions as to why Dafne's mother and stepfather could have put her through such an episode which sparked a huge police child abuse investigation.

One explanation is that her mother may have been trying to get her into school for the first time as she had not gone until now.

Some neighbours have claimed that the mother is a prostitute who is trying to turn Dafne into a sex worker too and a nine-year-old could command a higher fee from clients than a teenager.

Although Dafne has a birth certificate, the circumstances under which it was obtained are unclear.

It only emerged a year and two months ago when she tried to go to school for the first time and was told she needed it.

Neighbours have described Dafne as 'kind and very sweet' and said she looked much older than nine.



A woman who lives next door, in her early 20s, said that Dafne was tall for her age, appeared well developed, with a light complexion and long blonde hair which goes past her shoulders.

Another twist would be that if Dafne's real age is 15 or higher then her boyfriend sleeping with her would not even be a crime.

It is only an offence under Mexican law to sleep with somebody aged 14 or younger.

The girl will be given a medical examination to see exactly how old she is. It is highly likely that the girl is older than nine years old.'

Preliminary results will come back in 72 hours, although the full tests will not be known for two weeks.

He added that if it turns out the boyfriend did make Dafne pregnant and she was under age then he could be jailed for up to seven years.

If it turned out to be her stepfather as some have claimed, he would be tried as an adult and could be put away for between 12 and 20 years.

Dafne's baby was born by C-section on January 27 in Zoquipan Hospital, in Zapopan, Mexico's western Jalisco state weighting 5.95lbs.

Both girls are doing fine and in a healthy condition. According to Dafne's mother the girl was eight at the time she got pregnant but she didn't realize she was expecting until she was seven months gone.

The mother - who can't read or write - supposedly didn't even think that it was a crime that somebody so young having sex could be a criminal offence until she turned up at the hospital.
