Australian Father Gets 15 Year Jail Term for Forcing Bestial Acts on His Daughters
At last justice has caught up with an Australian who sexually assaulted his three daughters and forced them to bestiality acts.

The details are shocking, but no names have been revealed.

The South Australian District Court heard the 66-year-old also coerced his daughters to have sex with his cousin and a friend between 1967 and 1980 at his suburban Campbelltown house.

He then had incestuous relationships with each of the girls in the late 1980s, the youngest was aged six years at the time.

The court heard the man assaulted the girls first as young children, on some occasions forcing them to have sexual contact with a dog.

The abuse continued over two decades as the girls become adults, when the man had a sexual relationship with them.

Before sentencing on Wednesday, the horrid father, hailing from Adelaide, pleaded guilty to 13 offences including four counts of carnal knowledge, three of indecent assault, four of incest and two of unlawful sexual intercourse.

Judge Dean Clayton said he found it difficult to imagine worse conduct on the women than that committed by their father.

"The young girls were humiliated and degraded," Judge Clayton told the court.

"They have suffered emotionally since the time of the offending and will no doubt continue to suffer for the whole of their lives.

"In each case their ability to lead a normal and happy life has been destroyed."

The judge said the man had been diagnosed with severe borderline personality disorder and had shown little remorse for his paedophilic and zoophilic deviant sexual behaviour at the time.

He sentenced the man to 15 years jail, giving credit for his guilty plea and the fact he had not reoffended since.

He will be eligible for parole in January 2015.

Judge Clayton also sentenced the man's 52-year-old cousin to five years and three months jail for four sexual offences against the girls.

The man's 65-year-old friend received a 27-month suspended jail sentence for one count of carnal knowledge and was released on a good behaviour bond.
