The offenses, including three charges of rape, nine of indecent assault and one of indecency with a child, occurred during the 1980s and 90s after the girl told her father she was struggling to come to terms with his sexuality. He reacted with what Crown prosecutors described as "uncontrolled anger."
The victim's evidence "made harrowing listening," a judge has told the father. "That rape involved degradation and humiliation... the offence demonstrated your hostility towards her as a lesbian."
The man has been sentenced to 21 years in jail.
