Yesterday the Melbourne man pleaded guilty in the County Court of Victoria to persistent sexual abuse of a child under the age of 16. His partner, the girl’s mother pleaded guilty to sexual penetration of a child and an indecent act with a child.
The mother and nephew were in a sexual relationship when they started abusing the victim at the age of 12 in 2011.
Prosecutor Michael Hennessy told the court it was “gross offending,"
“The breaking of the virginity."
The Age reports that the mother and her daughter began to live with the man after she had split from her husband in 2011.
The relationship between the two started shortly after.
