Mexican gets 15 years for raping his 4 daughters
A Mexican truck driver convicted of raping his four young daughters, two of whom were made pregnant and gave birth, was sentenced to 15 years in jail, Jalisco state court officials said.
The youngest daughter, 11, gave birth to a child in 2006 while her father was driving his rig in northern Mexico in the company of his eldest 15-year-old daughter, whom he was sexually abusing at the time, prosecutors said in a statement on Tuesday.
In 2006, the father also raped his other two daughters, who were 12 and 13 at the time. The older daughter also became pregnant and gave birth to a child.
Arrested in 2007, the man, whose identity is being withheld, claimed he did not force himself on any of his daughters, but that he just asked them not to tell their mom what they had done.
The mother, who was thrown out of her own home by her husband, testified during the trial that, at first, she did not report the crimes hoping her husband would change his ways, but that she eventually relented to pressure from one of her daughters.
