Man accused of fathering six children with his daughter

A FATHER from south west Wales has gone on trial accused of raping his daughter 23 times and having six children with her.

The defendant is also charged with repeatedly raping one of the girls she gave birth to and another of his daughters and he denies a total of 36 counts of rape and one count of assault by penetration.

Prosecutor, John Hipkin, claimed the victims were ‘groomed’ and that the defendant, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, would act as a ‘fake mystic’ by sending emails instructing them what to do.

Mr Hipkin told the jury: “He did what he wanted to his three daughters and achieved this by systematic control, grooming and brainwashing. Their will was completely overwritten by him. He created a false world touched by witchcraft and mysticism. He would use a mystic to get them to do sexual acts with him by sending email messages to them. That control over them allowed him to gain sexual satisfaction.”

The trial at Swansea Crown court is expected to last three weeks.
