Pa meted 40 years
for raping daughter


A Regional Trial Court judge yesterday sentenced a lumber yard worker to 40 years imprisonment without possibility of parole for raping his 7-year-old daughter, despite her pleas for him to stop, in their house located under a bridge in Bacolod City, in 2008.

RTC Branch 43 Judge Philadelfa Pagapong-Agraviador found the 40-year-old father, whose name is being withheld to protect the identity of the victim, guilty beyond reasonable doubt of rape and sentenced him to suffer the penalty of reclusion perpetua.

He was also ordered to pay his daughter P50,000 as civil indemnity and P50,000 as moral damages.moremoremore
