A 47-year-old man from one of Bergen’s neighboring communities in Gulating Court of Appeal is sentenced to nine years in prison for hundreds of sexual abuses of his own daughter.

The penalty is three years stringent than the sentence he received in Nordhordland County Court in November last year, writes newspaper BergensAvisen.

Her father used to visit her room at night and committed sexual abuse, from the age of the girl was 10 years until she turned 16, said the ruling. The man has previously been unpunished and pleaded not guilty, but was not believed.

According to the forensic psychiatric expert, the girl suffered severe and prolonged psychological injury as a result of the weekly abuse for six years, and she will no doubt be scared by this atrocity her lifetime.

In addition to the prison sentence, the 47-year-old is also ordered to pay the now adult daughter 3.5 million NOK in damages, compensation for permanent injury and future loss of income.
