A Singapore court on Monday sentenced a man to 24 years in prison for raping his daughter over several years, a media report said.

The 57-year-old security guard, who was not named to protect the victim's identity, began abusing the girl in 2002 when she was 8 years old.

The attacks stopped in 2008 after the girl's mother found out about it, the online edition of Straits Times newspaper reported.

The couple also has four sons.

According to Singapore law, the man will not be caned because he is above the age of 50.
