Words & Phrases:
The Accused has pleaded guilty to counts of rape, indecent assault and incest perpetrated against his three daughters over a period of years. The counts before the Court are a token sample of outrages so numerous that they cannot be quantified which certainly run into many hundreds.
Many of the crimes had the attendant aggravating features and perversions which are now routine in cases coming before this Court. The unique feature of this case is that the Accused operated a sexual tariff by requiring his daughters to submit to a sexual act with him before being allowed out the front door of their dwelling house. This "customs post" was in operation while the Accused's wife was out of the house acting as the provider by working as a cleaner.
Matters came to light when the youngest girl aged 17 left home early last year. She went to stay with an aunt and in the course of her aunts seeking to persuade her to return home, she disclosed that she had been sexually assaulted by her father. The aunt summoned the mother and the disclosures were discussed. In the course of this, the eldest girl and the middle girl volunteered that they had been sexually assaulted in various ways by their father.
The family members went from the aunts flat to the family home where the Accused was confronted with the allegations. Upon being confronted he admitted to having slept with the youngest daughter and before saying anything further he walked out of the house at 11.30 p.m. and surrendered to the Guards at Store Street Station at midnight where he confessed in some degree to what had been happening.
The following morning enquiries were made of the mother and the three daughters and it became apparent that matters were much more serious that it had initially appeared. It came to light that there was a history of a seven year period of sexual offences including rape being perpetrated against the three daughters of the Accused. In 1989, the Accused began to take a sexual interest in his eldest daughter who was then 14. He digitally penetrated her and began shortly to have sexual intercourse with her. As soon as the mother left home to go to work, the Accused took advantage of the situation. Initially, these sexual outrages took place two or three times a week. In addition to conventional sex, he required mutual oral sex, would suck her breasts and masturbate himself while placing his penis between her breasts.
In late 1989, the Accused began to take an interest in his second daughter who was aged about 13. He asked her to expose her genital area to him and he exposed his penis to her. He showed her pornographic magazines and rubbed her genital area with his finger progressing to inserting his finger. He required her to perform acts of masturbation while he penetrated her digitally.
There was a progression to mutual oral sex and she was required to perform acts with his scrotum and rectum. He would masturbate himself in front of her and then require her to...
