An Australian man who fathered four children with his daughter over more than 30 years of abuse was sentenced to 22 years in prison.
A county court in Victoria state, where the abuse occurred, handed down the sentence today.
The 66-year-old man's identity was withheld to protect his daughter's privacy. Prosecutors said the abuse started when the girl was 13.
"To describe your treatment of your daughter as appalling is a gross understatement," judge Susan Pullen said.
The man pleaded guilty to two counts of indecently assaulting a girl under 16, 10 counts of incest and one of common assault.
He was sentenced to 22 years and five months, and must serve a minimum of 18 years before being eligible for parole.Reuse content
