A man who raped, sexually assaulted and assaulted his two children over three years was sentenced to eight years in prison.

The Central Otago man, who has been granted a final name revocation, will have to spend at least four years in prison before a parole order can be considered.

In Queenstown County Courthouse yesterday, Judge Bernadette Farnan provided shocking details of the insulting of his two daughters, who are only 3 and 7 years old, when the offense began.

The man, now in his late 30s, worked during the day, while his wife at the time worked at night.

It was in the evening, at their home, when the attack happened.

Judge Farnan said that throughout 2017, on multiple occasions, he would take his eldest daughter into a room, give her an iPad and sexually assault her.

Then repeat this behavior with the child.

The violation escalated in early 2018 and continued until last October.

The man confessed to the rape and abuse of the older child during that time.

His violation came to light when he turned himself in to Queenstown Police.

A search warrant was later issued and police found a laptop computer with a rejected post.

He was charged with representative charges of committing an immoral act against a woman between the ages of 3 and 4, between the ages of 7 and 8, between January 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017; A representative charge of doing improper work against a woman between the ages of 4 and 6, between January 1, 2018 and January 2, 2020; Three counts of representative sexual assault of a female aged 9-11 years, between January 1, 2018 and October 2, 2020; Accusations of sexual assault of a female between the ages of 4 and 6 between January 1, 2018 and October 2, 2020, and between June 1, 2020, and August 21, 2020; And possession of a rejected publication, on October 9, 2020.

Judge Farnan said that the man admitted all the wrongdoing and accepted the harm he had caused, admitting that he harmed the children “mentally, physically and spiritually.”

“It is clear to me … that your victims have been greatly influenced by your behavior towards them.

“They had the right to loving and decent behavior from their father.

“I let them down.”

He provided a detailed report of the abuse the man suffered as a child. He said he was early exposed to pornography and drug use.

He stated that he “did not know how to be a father”, and described himself as “sick and perverted” and said that his behavior was “very wrong.”

He never expected to see his children again.

A psychological report diagnosed him with childhood sexual orientation disorder and autism spectrum disorder and found that the risk of re-criminality was moderate to high.

Since the start of the 16-year prison term for the main charges of rape and unlawful sexual relationship, Judge Farnan has applied a global 50 percent discount to end the sentence for those charges to eight years in prison, with no parole for a minimum four-year period.

It also sentenced him to five years in prison on the remaining charges and issued an order to destroy his laptop.

It will be registered in the registry of child sex offenders according to the Child Protection Act (State Agency Registration of Child Sex Offenders) of 2016.

A final order to withhold the name has been issued, “not to protect you in any way, shape or form, but to protect your children.”
