A schoolgirl was repeatedly forced to have sex with her long-lost father after she tracked him down through Facebook. The 13-year-old says she became aware of who he was through friends and Facebook postings and found out that he was living in South Yorkshire.
After meeting her father for the first time, the teenager was invited to stay longer and her mother eventually allowed her to live with the 41-year-old.
According to Mailonline, the man then went on to have sex with the youngster 'on a regular basis' over a six month period.
Initially she slept on the sofa but when her father split up with his girlfriend he 'turned his attention' to his daughter.
The father 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 started having sex with his own daughter, the court heard. Prosecutor Mr Capstick explained;
'She did not resist because he was her dad. She said : "I had only just met him so I went along with it".'She said she felt like hitting out but couldn't as he was her father. It happened again over a six-month period. He would have sex with her on a regular basis, every other day.'
He encouraged the girl to drink alcohol before having sex with her. She eventually left the house and stopped living there.
The man admitted one offence of sexually assaulting his daughter and 14 offences of sexual activity with her when she was 13. Alison Dorrell, the man's defence lawyer, said the father now accepted having a regular sexual relationship with his daughter and knew it was wrong.
'Eventually he brought the activity to an end. He is very sorry and deeply regrets it and wishes he could urn the clock back. He feels sick when he thinks about it.'
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. When interviewed the girl said she let you do it because you were her father. She did not want to lose what she felt she had gained and she felt he had played with her emotions.'
How sick can some people be? A 13-year-old child, and your daughter too?
