A 52-year-old father of four was sentenced to 3½ years’ jail yesterday after it was discovered that he had been carrying on a nearly decade-long sexual relationship with his own stepdaughter.

The accused began having sex with the girl when she was only 15-years-old after he moved in with the girl’s mother in 2005. The girl’s mother had had an extramarital affair with the accused which led to the breakdown of her marriage to the girl’s biological father and subsequent divorce in 2004.

Following this, the man – who the girl referred to as “Uncle” – moved in with his lover, the girl and the girl’s younger brother. In the years to follow, the man began a secret sexual relationship with the girl which lasted until she was in her 20s.
