Another Brit Fritzl convicted for fathering two children by daughter

London, Dec 23 (ANI): In another Josef Fritzl-like case, a 72-year-old man has been convicted of sexually abusing his three daughters for a period of almost 20 years, and fathering two children with one of them.

The sex beast, who cannot be named to protect the identity of his children, repeatedly raped two of the girls in Dundee and Fife.

He started with his misdeeds, from 1976 to 1993, by abusing one of his daughters when she was just eight years old.

One girl, whom he threatened to shoot, gave birth to their first child at the age of 17, and a second at the age of 23.

The septuagenarian was also held guilty for repeatedly using lewd and libidinous behaviour towards another.

His conviction yesterday came after a weeklong trail at the High Court in Edinburgh.

Also, the same day, a ban on reporting the proceedings of the case was lifted.

The defendant, who later moved to the northeast of England, was brought to justice after his now-adult victims contacted police.

The man will be sentenced at the High Court in Kilmarnock next month.

At yesterdays hearing, the defence advocate Jonathan Crowe said the man was expecting “a lengthy sentence” and wanted bail to sort out personal matters.

However, the judge, Lady Clark, refused the motion.

“You have been convicted of very serious offences, The Independent quoted her as saying. (ANI)
