A father who raped his six year old daughter will be sentenced this Friday.

The accused appeared at the Suva High Court this morning and is convicted for incest and sexual assault.

The Director of Public Prosecutions has asked for a minimum sentence of ten years.

Judge Justice Salesi Temo says this sentence should serve as a lesson to all fathers as having sexual intercourse with your own children is a serious offence.

The incident happened in Tailevu in 2011.
