An unnamed 50-year-old man from Ottawa, Canada has been found guilty of forcing his 18-year-old daughter to have sex with him by assaulting her with a baseball bat and holding a knife to her throat. Sentencing is scheduled for Jamuary 16, 2009.
The victim, who testified behind a screen to avoid looking at her father, said the offenses occurred between Nov. 27, 2005 to Dec. 31, 2006. She left to get an abortion when it was found that her father impregnated her.
The victim and her sister came from the Congo to live with their father in 2005. He would threaten her with a baseball bat in order to get her to drink whiskey and told her that he would "show her about life and how to make love to a man."
