(Scroll down for video) Three generations of men were arrested and jailed after raping a maid over 80 times.

The incident began when the Indonesian woman went to Taiwan, to work as a maid.

She was hired by a family to do their housework, but while working, the family’s men turned her into their personal sex slave.

The despicable trio, Hu Ye-Chang, his son and his grandson, sexually assaulted the maid repeatedly over an entire year.

The 24-year-old maid was hired by the family to take care of Ye-Chang’s elderly mother.

The grandfather was the first to sexually assault the woman. One day, while the maid was mopping the floor, Ye-Chang groped her from behind, forced her to perform oral sex and then raped her, according to court records.

Hu then threatened to send the maid back to Indonesia, if she dared to tell anyone. After the first offense, Ye-Chang sexually assaulted the maid regularly once or twice each week. He paid the woman $16 after each sexual encounter.

The horrific crime worsened when the man’s 45-year-old son began sexually assaulting the woman as well. Later, the grandson, who is only 15 years old, also raped her.

Her ordeal ended only when she had saved enough money to pay the fees she owed to the foreign domestic worker agency that gave her the job.

At the trial, the three men claimed that the maid seduced them, adding that she had agreed to perform sexual services for money. However, the judge reviewed the evidence and determined that the woman had not given her consent.

The grandfather was sentenced to 10 years in prison for 43 counts of rape, his 45-year-old son was sentenced to 9 years for 35 counts of rape, and the grandson was sent to juvenile detention center for three counts of rape.
