Trucker Admits Raping and Impregnating 13-Year-Old in His Rig While Over-The-Road
Abingdon, VA – A trucker is facing at least ten years in prison after admitting to raping and impregnating a 13-year-old girl while she was in the sleeper of his big rig in 2015.
Last week, David Kyle Skaggs, 33, of Cahokia, IL, pleaded guilty to transporting a minor from Virginia to South Dakota with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity.
According to federal prosecutors, Skaggs befriended a 15-year-old boy and his family — who lived in Lee County, VA — via Facebook in 2015.
The boy, identified in court documents as “AA,” had a sister, identified as “KL.”
KL was 13 years of age when in August of 2015, Skaggs picked the two children up in Lee County and transported them to South Dakota, according to court documents.
After stopping at a truck stop in South Dakota, Skaggs bought the two minors alcohol which they each consumed while in the truck.
After AA fell asleep, Skaggs had sexual intercourse with KL in the sleeper portion of the rig.
Court documents state KL became pregnant and later gave birth to Skaggs’s child.
He is scheduled to be sentenced on September 30, 2021 and faces a minimum penalty of ten years in prison.
