Father who raped his gay daughter to prove 'sex was better with men' jailed for 21 years

A father who raped his 16-year-old daughter to show her "sex was better with men" after she confided in him that she was gay has been jailed for 21 years, according to a report.

The 54-year-old man responded with "uncontrolled anger" when he attacked the teenager after she admitted to him that she was "struggling with her identity."

The father's name has not been released in efforts to protect the victim's identity.

The Warwick Crown Court also learned the man also has two other daughters who have suffered similar abuse from their father for two decades.

"The court heard from both of these two women. They have both been severely psychologically damaged by your behavior," Judge Andrew Lockhart QC told the man. "Listening to [one of the victim's] evidence of her feeling of guilt at leaving her sister to face you was the most harrowing of evidence."

The man was charged on all three counts of rape of his daughters.

He had pleaded not guilty to nine charges of indecent assault, three charges of rape and one charge of indecency with a child.

"You reacted by showing real and uncontrolled anger, and you decided to rape her to show her why it would be better to have sex with men than women" Lockhart continued. "Her evidence made harrowing listening."

The judge said that the crime involved "degradation and humiliation" for the teenage victim.

"The offense demonstrated your hostility towards her as a lesbian," Lockhart added.

In addition to his 21-year sentence, the judge reportedly ruled that the father would also serve an additional five years following his release "on license" -- meaning he will be forced to abide by certain conditions under probation.
