Man jailed 13 years, given 12 strokes of cane for sexually assaulting daughter
A 47-year-old man who sexually assaulted his daughter in 2012 and 2013 was jailed on Wednesday (May 27) for 13 years and given 12 strokes of the cane.
The man, who cannot be named to protect the victim's identity, had touched his 12-year-old daughter's vagina and violated her repeatedly in 2012.
He had told her to undress following the victim's complaint of having body aches.
While massaging her, he touched her private parts.
She kept the incident a secret as she feared nobody would believe her.
Unfortunately, a year later in February 2013, the man assaulted her again in a room he was sharing with his wife, another daughter and the victim, then 13.
