GUILTY: Father claims ‘mistaken identity’ after having sex with 15yo daughter

The building that houses the High Court in Road Town, Tortola.

A 43-year-old local who was found guilty of incest on Monday has claimed that it was a case of ‘mistaken identity’ when he had sex with his then 15-year-old daughter nearly two years ago.

Eight of the nine-member jury panel returned with a guilty verdict.

The man – whose name is being withheld to protect his child – testified that he was under the influence of alcohol and thought he was having sex with his girlfriend on the night of December 15, 2016.

Throughout the course of his trial in the High Court, the Crown relied on the victim’s testimony, DNA evidence, as well as the testimony of a retired police officer who reported the matter after the sexually-assaulted minor raced to his home asking for help on the night in question.

The incestuous dad is now in custody awaiting his sentence which is scheduled for January 14.

What the court heard happened

The court heard that the daughter came over to Tortola from a sister island to attend a family event that was happening the following day.

As pre-arranged by her mother, the father was supposed to pick her up from the ferry dock and take her to her grandparents home.

The incestuous father, however, opted not to take the minor to her grandparents’ house but, rather, to his home.

The court heard that the man later went to work and, one his way back, had a few alcoholic beverages before returning home.

Later that night, after taking a bath, the underaged victim was reportedly lying in bed when her father came into her bedroom and gave her a kiss on the cheek.

He then continued kissing her but this time tried inserting his tongue into her mouth, the court heard. The teen clenched her teeth and tried to push him away. The lewd father persisted.

‘Daddy no, Daddy stop!’

He proceeded to pin her down and eventually overpowered her and had sex with her, the court heard.

The underaged daughter reportedly told the court she shouted, “Daddy no, Daddy stop” but he did not stop, and he ejaculated inside her vagina and on her body.

When the assault was over, she ran to the bathroom and he followed. He asked the child not to tell anyone, including her mother, and promised her that he could get her anything she wanted.

The young lady told the court that she agreed so that he could stop pestering her. She later returned to bed and pretended to fall asleep.

It was during that time that her father, believing she was sound asleep, called his then-girlfriend, who came to pick him up shortly after.

The court heard that when he left the house, his daughter packed her travelling bag and ran next door to ask for help.

The neighbour, who was a retired police officer, alerted the police and she was taken to the hospital for a medical assessment.

The assessment found her father’s semen was still embedded in her vagina. The assessment also showed that she had tearing of her hymen (a membrane which partially closes the opening of the vagina and whose presence is traditionally used as a mark of virginity).

The semen was later tested and it was found to be a match with her father’s.

Her father was subsequently arrested, charged and granted bail.

        I ain’t hear they say nothing of rape though… Obviously there was some kind of consent.

        • Madoff says:

          Consent? Really? Its rape if only because of her age.

          It’s certainly rape, because she said “Daddy, don’t do it” and ran away at the first opportunity she could and reported it.”

          When the master used to have his way with young girls he could get away with it. Those times should have passed.

          We need an explanation from the prosecution, why this matter is considered incest vs rape!

        • You idiot says:

          she said NO Daddy! And even if she didn’t get the words out are you insinuating that a father can have sex with his child? she is also a minor…hello!!

        Of course is a problem when royals do it. That don’t mean we have to condone it tho. We just don’t say anything to royals because they’re “royal”.

        But if that’s you trying to justify that man’s actions, you should be locked up with him.

    Do we live in a civil society? Our elected officials have ignored our children by failing to rebuild their schools. Our courts are now protecting rapists?

    This is a matter of rape not incest! Do women have any rights here?

      • Madoff says:

        The penalty for rape is severely different than the penalty for incest. The crime of incest usually implies consent on behalf of both parties.

        What that monster did to his child did not involve her consent. By all accounts he raped her. Why wasn’t he charged with rape?

        The usual penalty for raping children is life imprisonment or death. The penalty for incest varies and may involve a small fine.

  4. Just Curious says:

    I would like to know who is that juror who heard the evidence of the child coupled with forensic evidence showing that the father seen was inside if his own daughter and believe that the father wasn’t guilty. That’s one of the reasons why jury trial should be abolished and leave the deliberations to three judges to give the verdict. I am glad his A$$ Will be at HMP until next year and I hope he gets the same amount of years like his daughter’s age. Thanks to the other eight jurors that makes justice happens.

    First, let me say to the victim, I am so sorry that you had this terrible experienced by the man who should have been there to protect you.

    Know that you did nothing wrong. I applaud you for testifying against your so called father. I trust that your mother has gotten you the necessary psychotherapy to cope with this horrible horrible experience, so that you can move on with your life and hopefully have healthy relationships in the future.

    Now, mistaken identity? I cannot believe this low life used that as an excuse. Did’t his child’s cries of ‘Daddy no, Daddy stop!’ not make him realize he was committing a crime against his own child? Mistaken identity my @ss.

    I would like to spend one minute in a room with this guy…just one minute. One of us would not be coming out of that room. People like him need their @sses thoroughly beaten.

    There is no amount of alcohol one can consume that would cause one to rape their own child. This guy had this idea in the back of his mind. Let’s call what he did what it is: Incestuous rape. He need a lengthy stay at Balsum Ghut.

    While there, I hope he is miserable every single day, and one of the guys who has read or head of this case mistake his identity and beat his a$$ real good.

    I am mad just reading this story. You cannot go any lower than raping your own child. While I am 99.99% a law abiding person, this is one exception where I could end up in jail.

    I cannot guarantee I could control myself if something like this happen to my child. Horrible.

    This was a closed case and for what is supposed to be a reputable newspaper to print such distortion of the facts of the case, is ridiculous. You should be allowed to sue. But that’s how things are done in a small place where even law enforcement is corrupted. Majority of this so called news story are lies and doesn’t even line up with what the young lady said.

      Which bit did they get wrong? Did or did not the father have Sexual intercourse with his daughter who was underage?
      The rest doesn’t matter. If you have sex with a minor that is rape – if that’s your daughter it’s still rape plus incest which even worse if that’s possible.
      Don’t have sex with underage children. It’s really simple. If you do you are a pedo and need serious physiological help as well as removal from society.
      Rape is a cowardly act done by men (and women) who are the lowest form of scum. If you are trying to protect him you need to ask yourself some serious questions about morals and ethics.
