Christopher Joseph Ladue of Browning, 26, pled guilty to sexual abuse of a minor during a federal court session in Great Falls on Thursday.
On February 3, 2012, Blackfeet Child Protective Services notified the FBI that a 12-year-old girl tested positive for pregnancy at the Blackfeet Community Hospital.
The school therapist treating her reported to investigators that the girl spoke about spending time with Ladue.
When questioned by authorities, Ladue admitted that he was likely the father of the baby.
Ladue faces possible penalties of 15 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, and lifetime supervision.
Sentencing has been set for August 14, 2013.
