Ipswich man jailed after filming himself raping daughter

AN IPSWICH man who video recorded himself raping his biological daughter has been jailed.

The man, who cannot be identified in order to protect his daughter's identity, pleaded guilty yesterday in the Brisbane District Court to rape, indecent assault and producing child exploitation material.

The court was told the offences occurred between 2010 and 2011 when the girl was aged between 9 and 10 years.

Crown prosecutor Deborah Holliday said the man had filmed himself committing various sex acts, including penile rape, against his daughter while she lay on a bed.

The Queensland Times has chosen not to reveal the graphic details contained in the video recording.

Ms Holliday said the man had been on the police radar for a while before he was eventually arrested over the crimes.

"His former partner (not the girl's mother) was doing something on his computer one day in October, 2012 and came across the video," she said.

"She reported it to police.

"Early the following year he showed his current partner the video and she told him to destroy it.

"The next day she reported it to police and he was subsequently arrested."

Judge Michael Rackemann sentenced the man to seven years and three months behind bars and said it would have been much higher had there been any violence towards the girl.

The man will be eligible to apply for parole on August 12, 2017.
