Man Jailed For Sex Assault On Daughter

Monday December 22 2014




A MAN has been jailed for having sex with his 13-year-old daughter over a six-month period.

The 41-year-old sexually assaulted his daughter over a six-month period after she went to live with him, Sheffield Crown Court heard.

Initially she slept on the sofa but when her father split up with his girlfriend, he "turned his attention" to his daughter.

The dad rubbed her back before kissing her and the next day he said she could sleep in his bed and he would sleep on the sofa.

But during the night he crept into the bed and began having sex with his own daughter.

Timothy Capstick, prosecuting, said: "She did not resist because he was her dad. She said she had only just met him so I went along with it.

"It happened again over a six-month period. He would have sex with her on a regular basis, every other day."

The teenager, who is now 18, first told a social worker what had happened then went to the police last year.

Police officers found old texts on the man's phone which suggested he had been having a sexual relationship with his daughter.

When arrested he initially denied having any contact with the girl and said another family member must have used the phone.

Judge Simon Lawler jailed the man for six years.

He told him: "Over a period of six months you grossly abused your position of trust. She was 13 and you were 41 and you took advantage of her."
