Rapist father convicted

|News, Sexual offences , Domestic abuse

A man who repeatedly raped his daughters, fathering six children, has been found guilty at Swansea Crown Court.

The offences happened over two decades, during which time he would rape the girls at home, in his car and at other locations.

Instructions were received by the girls through what they believed was a psychic app, which was in fact their father instructing them to have sex with him and other men.

DNA tests carried out as part of the investigation showed that six children born to one of the daughters were her father’s children.

Hayley Fackrell, of the CPS said: “These sickening acts of abuse were carried out by a person that was supposed to protect and care for the victims, but instead he systematically controlled their lives, grooming them for his sexual gratification.

“The CPS provided advice from an early stage in the investigation, guiding the way the case was built, ultimately leading to these convictions.”

Sentence is due to take place later this month.
