An evil father who raped his own daughter over decades and fathered “at least” six children with her has been jailed for 40 years.
Swansea Crown Court heard the man controlled the life of his victim for more than two decades, before going on to rape one of the children he had with his daughter.
He also repeatedly abused and raped another of his daughters during her teenage years – and arranged for another man to rape her.
The defendant, who lives in south west Wales but who cannot be named to protect the lifelong anonymity afforded to his victims, had denied 36 counts of rape and one of sexual assault but was convicted on all counts last week following a trial at Swansea Crown Court.
He returned to the dock on Friday to be sentenced for his crimes.
The defendant raped his first victim when she was aged just 14, and within months she was pregnant with his first child.
He controlled every aspect of her life, even invoking elements of witchcraft and creating a “fake mystic” who would send his daughter messages telling her to perform sex acts with her dad.
The woman went through nine pregnancies during her years of abuse and gave birth to six children and DNA tests showed all were fathered by the defendant.
