Father Sentenced to Fifteen Years behind Bars for Incest

A father has been sentenced to fifteen years in prison for incest.  On May tenth, the man was convicted of six counts of incest after being found guilty of having sexual intercourse with his daughter during a five-year period. The act upon the minor first occurred in 2014 when she was thirteen years old and continued through to December 2019. On count one and two, the father was sentenced to twelve years each. On count three and four, he was sentenced to thirteen years each. The prison time increased to fourteen years for count five and fifteen years for count six, for a total of seventy-nine years behind bars.  But, the judge ordered that the sentences run concurrently instead of consecutively, the father will only served 15 years imprisonment, the largest prison term of all the sentences. The trial started on April nineteenth and concluded on May tenth when he was found guilty.   In the trial, the father was represented by Attorney Hurl Hamilton.
