Man confessed to raping 3-year-old who tested positive for STDs


A Texas man has reportedly confessed to raping a 3-year-old female relative, who later tested positive for STDs, according to court documents cited by the San Antonio Express-News. 

26-year-old Drevon Alexander Perkins was arrested this week after the girl’s mother noticed discharge in her diaper and took her to a hospital, according to the publication. 

That’s when a doctor confirmed she had been infected with two STDs — chlamydia and gonorrhea. 

Court documents cite Perkins has the same STDs that the girl had reportedly contracted.

During a polygraph test, Perkins reportedly admitted to raping the young girl in January while he was “high on drugs.”

He told authorities he attacked the girl at his apartment while her mother was at work. 

Perkins remains in custody on $100,000 bond at the Bexar County Jail on a felony charge of super aggravated sexual assault of a child, according to jail records. 

If convicted, he faces a minimum of 25 years in prison, KTRK reports.
