Far South Coast man jailed for sexually assaulting daughter

A Far South Coast man was sentenced to seven and a half years’ jail on Thursday for the repeated sexual assault of his biological daughter.

The victim was 15-years-old at the time of the 2016 assaults, which occurred after they had reconnected over social media.

The man’s sentence was backdated to his July 2016 arrest, after he pleaded guilty in Bega District Court.

He will be eligible for parole on July 27, 2021.
