Man gets 30 years of imprisonment for raping 9-year-old stepdaughter in Nicaragua

Court sentenced a man convicted of raping and impregnating his 9-year-old stepdaughter 30 years in prison.

The case received international attention after a women's group helped the child get an abortion in Nicaragua, outraging the Roman Catholic Church.

The girl was raped in Costa Rica, where she lived with her stepfather and mother. She and her family initially blamed a Costa Rican man, but she later backed off that story and said the stepfather was responsible.

Judge Ruth Chamorro sentenced the man late Tuesday and said his 30-year sentence cannot be appealed.

Prosecutors had sought a 40-year sentence, arguing that the suspect continued to rape his stepdaughter once they returned to Nicaragua, impregnating her again. The girl, now 14, gave birth to a child a year ago.
