George father sentenced to life

On Thursday, 30 November 2017, a father from George was sentenced to life behind bars for repeatedly raping his biological daughter over a period of several years.

The rapes took place between 2012 and 2015. The victim was 14 when she was first raped in 2012. Since that day her father, a 42 year old businessman from George, repeatedly raped her at his business premises as well as at home.

The man was arrested after his daughter told her grandmother about the sexual abuse and rape.

Magistrate JH Breyl further sentenced the accused to two years behind bars on two counts of child abuse and 12 months imprisonment for assault with the intent to do grievous bodily harm. The sentences will run concurrently.

Breyl said that the name of the man may not be made public in order to protect the identity of the victim.
