The 50-year-old pleaded guilty to raping two of his daughters and sexual activity with the third at Bradford Crown Court
A father who had sex with his three daughters, making two of them pregnant, has been jailed for 12 years.
The 50-year-old pleaded guilty to raping two of the girls and sexual activity with the third - who gave birth last summer aged 13.
The ‘systematic abuse’ of the eldest girl happened when she was aged between 14 to 16, with the man raping her twice in the bathroom of the family home and once in his car after parking up a lane while taking her to school.
Matthew Bean, prosecuting, said the girl became pregnant in 2008 but miscarried, believing the defendant was the father.
The father then turned his attention to his youngest daughter, raping her on a bed at her home in Bradford, West Yorkshire, when she was 11 or 12.
He then went on to have sex with the third girl in 2009 and she gave birth to his child when she was only 13.
Judge Jonathan Durham Hall QC said the defendant admitted systematically abusing his eldest daughter and specified offences on his middle and youngest girls.
‘You have pleaded guilty knowing that the court must impose a significant sentence.
‘Most if not all of the aggravating features are present here. Significant breach of trust.
'Abuse of all your female children, all of whom are particularly vulnerable,’ he said.
Mr Bean told Bradford Crown Court that the police began an investigation and DNA tests proved the man had fathered his daughter’s child.
The man, who had been held in custody as the case proceeded through the courts, pleaded guilty to five offences on Monday, the day he was to stand trial.
He admitted three specimen charges of raping his eldest daughter between 2006 and 2008, raping his youngest daughter between 2008 and 2010 and sexual activity with his third daughter between October and December 2009.
Simon Myers, defending, said his guilty pleas had spared his daughters the ordeal of giving evidence in court.
‘He realises that he will serve a substantial term of imprisonment,’ he said DNA evidence had made his position indefensible but the girls, who are in their teens, still felt protective towards their father.
Judge Durham Hall QC said the man’s confession of guilt had spared him an 18 to 20-year jail sentence.
The defendant sat in the dock with arms folded as the judge told him: ‘The impact upon them will never be understood or expressed in any degree that measures up to the pain they must and will suffer.’
The judge made a Sexual Offences Prevention Order and said the man must register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
The court heard that care proceedings were ongoing in relation to several young people in the family.
