Man accused of raping daughter while siblings played in park

A MARYBOROUGH man has pleaded not guilty to allegedly making his then eight-year-old daughter commit sex acts on him while her siblings were across the road playing in the park.

The man, who cannot be identified in order to protect his daughter's identity, is on trial in the Brisbane District Court where he is facing four rape charges stemming from interactions with his daughter between March and December, 2012.

Crown Prosecutor Carly Whelan told the court on Monday the young girl would describe what occurred when the two were alone together inside their Maryborough home.

She told jurors they did not have to worry about consent issues because under Queensland law a child under 12 cannot consent to any type of sexual act or interaction.

"The victim will tell you about a time in her life when she was raped by her father," she said.

"On all occasions the accused made his daughter suck, stroke and kiss his penis.

"The girl told her mother about what occurred one day when they were visiting her grandparents in Hervey Bay.

"She said she did not want to go home because of what her father was making her do."

The girl, in a recorded interview with Maryborough Child Protection Unit officers played to the court, said her father only made her commit the sex acts when her mother was away from the house.

"He made me do it in the boy's room when they were at the park," she said.

"He made me sit on a basket and then he put his penis inside my mouth while he was leaning against the bunk bed."

The girl told officers her father made her do the same thing the following day when her mother had once again left the house.

"The next day he made me do the same thing in the morning, at lunchtime and after dinner," she said.

"I told him I did not want to, but he said just to do it."

The man, who was dressed in jeans and a checked shirt, sat in court shaking his head as his daughter's police interview was being played to the court.

The trial before Judge Brad Farr continues.
