A man is in jail and charged with raping his girlfriend's 12 year old daughter.

Investigators with the Nelson County Sheriff's Office arrested Jesus Aleman-Roman on Sunday night.

Deputies say Roman walked in on a child while she was sleeping and raped her.

Social services found out about it through an anonymous tip and reported the allegations to investigators.

Roman is an illegal immigrant from Honduras and confessed to raping the young girl, according to investigators.

He is currently being held at the Albemarle County Regional Jail with no bond.

If convicted, he will serve his sentence and then be sent back to his native country.
