Father's sexual abuse case 2016

Ruling on a father's sex charge next week

The 46-year-old father has been in court since August last year after he was arrested and charged for the persistent sexual assault of his biological daughter.

That ruling on his case is expected next Thursday.

He was charged with the persistent child sexual abuse, or a charge of sexual penetration, that falls under section 229 of the Criminal Code and Sexual Offenses and Crimes Against Children’s Act.

The accused is alleged to have continuously raped or sexually assaulted his daughter where they lived between January 31, 2014, and June 18, 2015.
