Regional court in Russian city of Rostov sentenced a man to 10 years of imprisonment for incest. His daughter had a baby when she was 13 years old.
However, the rapist applealed the Russian Supreme Court on the grounds that he had a minor daughter and a newborn son to support. There has been no reply to this appeal so far.
The court detected that the father who is a drunkard and has never worked anywhere, started raping his daughter when the wife was working night shifts as a nurse. He threatened the girl and made her keep silence. He raped the girl even when she was pregnant, and shortly after the delivery.
The girl's mother learned who is the baby's father, only after the baby fell ill. She invented the plausible excuse that the father's blood can help the baby, and heard shocking confession from her daughter after this. She took the girl to the police. The man confessed of the crime during the investigation, but in court pleaded not guilty and said that his wife and daughter just invented all this. However, genetic expertise revealed that he is the baby's father.
