A man (46) has been sentenced to 13 years in prison for the raping his daughters and for aggravated assault and threats against the whole family.
During the trial in Eiker, Modum and Sigdal District Court the two oldest daughters told the court that their father had abused them over a period of several years. The man is convicted of abusing his daughters from before they had turned 14 and having repeated the abuse over an extended period. He is also found guilty of several counts of gross violence against his wife and children, like kicking the pregnant spouse in the stomach so that she miscarried.
There have been several more cases of rape of the two biological children. He also has committed other serious sexual offenses on the girls since they were very young. The Court finds no mitigating circumstances in the case, according to the verdict.
