1. Pregnant woman raped by estranged father first time she met him.
A father who raped his pregnant daughter the first time he met her in 20 years has had his prison sentence reduced by the Court of Appeal.
The 38-year-old man was jailed for four years for incest following the rape at the woman’s home reports The Age.
The woman had invited the father, his partner and their son to stay with her in her home.
The court heard that when they were alone in the home in October 2014 the two hugged after the man implored her. “Give Dad a hug.”
The pair hugged and then he asked for a second hug when he began kissing her neck.
The woman pushed her father away and said sarcastically “If you’re gonna be like that you may as well take me to your bedroom.”
According to the report the father then asked her to follow him into the bedroom where he pushed her on to the bed and raped her, saying, “I love you forever.”
The woman said, “I didn’t say anything or do anything,”
“I felt I had to co-operate and not say anything. I was worried I might get hurt. I thought that if I tried to stop him, he would get angry.
“I knew he had a very violent past and had been in jail for physical assaults.”
“I was very confused with what he said and I still am,” the woman said.
