A father was found guilty of raping his young daughter and sharing her with another man.
The man of the United Kingdom, raped his 5-year-old daughter and offered another man the opportunity to rape the child.
The incident occurred 40 years ago, the Canterbury Crown Court heard. The victim, who is now a middle-aged woman, finally had the courage to report the horrific abuse.
According to court documents, the father of Kent, who is now 83 years old, said that the girl offered to play “Blind Man’s Bluff,” a kids game in which children are blindfolded.
The jury was told how the father offered his daughter to a delivery man who brought coal to him, and the man accepted the offer.
The father blindfolded his daughter, but rather than playing with her, the delivery driver raped her. The father then threatened his daughter not to tell anyone about the rape.
The father, who cannot be named for legal reasons, denied the charges, but was convicted by a jury. He will be sentenced at a later date.
