UNNAMED DAD has been found guilty of raping his daghter over a period of two years and fathering a child with her. Notice that this father is custodial--that the daughter was "living with him" (not "her parents") and that she eventually confided in an aunt. Also notice that this @$$wipe tried to frame his son for the sexual abuse. Such a nice guy.
INVISIBLE MOTHER ALERT: Is the mother deceased or what? Not one word of explanation here.
Raped daughter, tried to frame son

A man who fathered a child by his daughter was yesterday convicted in the Alexandra Magistrate's Court of raping her.
The 49-year-old was found guilty of repeatedly raping his daughter, now 21, between 2004 and 2006, while she was living with him in Alexandra, Johannesburg.
The daughter reported the assaults to the police in 2008 after a dispute between herself, her father and her twin brother about their house in the township.
She sent an SMS to an aunt and told her that she had a "terrible" secret about her father.
The father told the court that it was against his "moral code" to "rape a woman who is still nursing" but the court accepted that the daughter was raped well into 2006. Her child was born in November 2005.
The decisive evidence in the trial came from a DNA test, which proved that the woman's daughter was fathered by her father.
"It is this court's opinion that the paternity results confirm the complainant's evidence that the accused had sexual intercourse with her," said magistrate Syta Prinsloo.
The man testified that he had not had sex with his daughter and tried to blame his son, her twin brother, for fathering the child.
But Prinsloo said: "It is clear that we can believe the accused's version only if we believe in sperm running through the air, and, all of a sudden, [a woman] falls pregnant."
Prinsloo said the man "beat" his daughter, "overpowered her, undressed her and had sexual intercourse with her". She said the girl took a long time to lay a complaint because her father had threatened to kill her.
As the case was being finalised, about 20 women holding banners reading "800 years for a rapist" and "Real men don't rape", demonstrated outside the court.
Sindiswa Ngcongco, criminal justice system co-ordinator for Agisanang Domestic Abuse and Prevention Training, said the man should "be removed from society . the effect of the abuse is unimaginable".
The case was postponed to August 10.
