London, Feb 15 (ANI): An English father, who repeatedly raped his 16-year-old daughter, has said he wanted her to provide a child for his interfile girlfriend.
The 46-year-old from Cambridgeshire village groomed and then abused the girl, who has the mental age of a 7-year-old, on a daily basis after his wife left him three years ago, reports the Daily Mail.
She eventually gave birth to a boy but told the authorities an ex-boyfriend had made her pregnant after her father threatened to kill himself if she revealed the truth.
The sickening abuse only came to an end after the teenager contacted police when she discovered he had also raped her 14-year-old friend after plying her with alcohol.
The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was given an indeterminate jail term at Cambridge Crown Court today after he was convicted of three rapes, sexual activity with a child, sexual assault of a child and perverting the course of justice.
Judge Jonathan Haworth said he would serve a minimum of seven years and 45 days, adding he posed a 'serious risk' to teenage girls.
His daughter, who is now 19, gave birth in December 2008 but it was not until March last year that she contacted police after learning her friend had been raped during a visit to their home.
During the trial, the father's former lover denied his version of events and said she had never planned to have a child with him.
She said he had lost interest in her when he found out she had had a hysterectomy. (ANI)
