MOUNT CLEMENS (WWJ) – A 28-year old man accused of raping and impregnating an 11-year old girl will be back in court in August.

The trial for Trevaun Brooks was set to start on Tuesday, but was adjourned to give lawyers time look over results of a competency exam to determine if he can stand trial.

Brooks is accused of having sex with the child, his girlfriend’s daughter, last year while he was living with them.  Brooks also worked briefly as a janitor at the girl’s charter school before his arrest in September.

The girl, who gave birth last August, said she didn’t know she was pregnant until she had the baby.

The now 12-year-old girl and the baby are now under the care of state protection services.

Brooks faces first and second-degree criminal sex charges after Macomb County prosecutors say his DNA is a positive match with the baby.

Brooks faces life in prison if convicted.
