Posted by jtsmyth8 on January 25, 2008

A 29 year old man who repeatedly raped his live-in fiancee’s daughter was finally caught out after he used his camera-phone to take video of himself molesting the girl. On Friday, the man, a vegetable packer who has previous convictions for sexual offences, was put behind bars for 26 years and ordered to be caned the maximum 24 strokes.

He cannot be named to protect the identity of the girl, now aged 11 and a primary six pupil.

The High Court heard that the man met the girl’s mother in 2004 when she was going through a divorce from her second husband.

Later that year, they got engaged and he moved in with her and her two children.

The girl was first raped in the first half of 2006, when she was nine.

She was sleeping in her room, running a fever, when he woke her and raped her.

She was too frightened to tell anyone about the assault.

Subsequently, he raped her four more times, between May 2006 and July 2007. (story)
