Australia father raped daughter for 30 years
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/8260412.stm
<snip>
Australian police have charged a man with a series of sex offences in a case which has drawn comparisons to that of Austrian Josef Fritzl.

Australian media said the man, in his 60s, had been charged with rape and incest allegedly committed against his daughter over a period of 30 years.

Prosecutors will allege DNA tests prove the man is the father of his daughter's four children, reports say.


Australia's ABC News said the man, who has not been named, has been charged with five counts of rape, five of incest, two of indecent assault and one count of common assault.

Other reports say the man was arrested in February after his daughter spoke to police last year. The police then apparently began their investigations, including the DNA tests.

He is reported to have lived in the Latrobe Valley, east of Melbourne, with his wife, daughter and her children.

---------------------
I hope victims across the globe will speak out and make these scumbags get their just rewards - prison for life.

5. What is wrong with these wives
that live with these monsters? I have no pity on father or mother, they should both be put away for the rest of their lives.

6. as a domestic violence counselor I would say that things aren't always what they
seem to be. Who knows what he might have done to her too.

7. I know you must have dealt with some horrific cases but
that woman must have had more than a few chances in 30 years to go to the police.
