A monster dad has admitted to having raped his own daughter while her COVID-positive mother was self-isolating in the neighbouring room.
The unnamed man made the confession before a judge at the Provincial Court of Girona in the Spanish city of the same name on Monday morning, 14th February.
The defendant pleaded guilty to a charge of continued sexual assault and was sentenced to 12 years in prison.
The crimes took place in the nearby city of Salt in 2020, when the girl’s mother was self-isolating in the next room after having tested positive for COVID-19.
The court heard how the man took advantage of the situation to “drop his trousers and vaginally penetrate” the minor, whose exact age was not reported.
On another occasion, he was sent to the nearby city of Figueres for work, and he took his daughter with him for a couple of weeks.
There, he raped her again “on at least 10 occasions”. He also raped her on further occasions when she had returned to the family home.
The Prosecutor’s Office, in addition to requesting 12 years in prison, asked for the defendant’s parental custody to be withdrawn.
The prosecution also requested he be banned from working in any role involving direct contact with minors for five years after the completion of his prison sentence.
The Prosecutor’s Office also requested his expulsion from Spain, which is a measure the defendant, whose nationality has not been reported, reportedly rejects.
According to local media including Spanish newspaper ABC, this latter matter will be settled at a later date.
