Brit Fritzl who repeatedly raped daughter gets 9 years jailJanuary 28th, 2009 - 6:51 pm ICT by ANI
London, January 28 (ANI): A depraved father has been awarded nine years imprisonment for abusing and repeatedly raping his own daughter, while under the watchful eye of social services.
His evil wife, however, escaped with a suspended sentence despite the fact that she also abused the girl.
The couple, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were convicted of vile child sex abuse.
The social services involvement brought echoes of the Baby P case because the child was on the at risk register.
It followed fears that she was being sexually abused but left with her parents for another 10 years.
The authorities were first alerted to the situation when the couple forced the victim to photograph them having sex at the tender age of three years.
The jury was told this happened on more than one occasion to the victim, who is currently aged 23.
Even though the pictures were seen by Surrey Social Services, the girl was allowed to remain with her natural parents, from Aldershot, Hants.
Prosecutor Caroline Carberry told the trial in Guildford that the girls father had begun indecently touching her by the time she became nine.
This was a highly dysfunctional and failing family who had a massive social services input but to little or no avail, the Sun quoted Andrew Rutherford, defending the man, as saying.
He revealed that the victim was put on the at risk register when she was four, but still was abandoned to live in squalid conditions and suffer the abuse of her sick parents. (ANI)
