A father is commonly said to be a son’s first hero and a daughter’s first love. He is the role model who will show his daughter what kind of partner to find in the future.
He protects her from everything in the world because she’s daddy’s little girl, and no matter who she brings home as her partner, he will always look at them with apprehension because no one will ever be good enough for his precious daughter.
Yes, most fathers are like that. They shower their daughters with love and protect them so that they don’t get hurt.
But this man from Wales didn’t behave like how a typical father would.
Instead, he abused his daughter’s trust in him and raped her.
Abused Trust And Sexually Groomed Victims
When his daughter was still young, he told her that he wanted to “teach” her how to have sex so that she would know what to do with her future boyfriends.
At the young and tender age of 14, his daughter became pregnant with his first child.
And it didn’t end there.
According to BBC, the man continued to impregnate his daughter at least five more times over the span of 20 years.
He also repeatedly raped one of the daughters who was born from the sexual assault and raped another of his daughters.
He manipulated them into having sex with him by pretending to be a “psychic” who sent them emails about what they had to do.
The court was told that he “created a false world of witchcraft and mysticism”.
According to BBC, the man even claimed that his daughters blackmailed him into having sex with him.
What’s more outrageous was that he tried to convince his friend to sexually abuse his own daughter but he wasn’t interested, so he raped his friend’s daughter while his friend watched.
After nearly five hours, the jury finally found him guilty on all counts.
He denied a total of 36 counts of rape and showed no emotion during the unanimous verdict.
The judge who was in charge of his case told him that this was one of the top three worst cases he had ever faced in his 40 years of being a barrister and a judge.
The man has been remanded into custody and will be sentenced in court on Friday, 18 October.
It is insane to think that a father could do this to his own children and traumatise them over the past 20 years. He abused his authority and made use of their trust just to satisfy his own sexual desires.
We can only hope that he gets what he deserves and pays for his crimes.
