Father pleads guilty to sexually abusing daughters

  • Print

A Winnipeg father has admitted to repeatedly confining, raping and making pornography with his two young daughters -- one of whom is physically disabled -- for more than seven years.

The 48-year-old -- who can't be named to protect the identity of the children – pleaded guilty today to what police and justice officials say is one of the worst cases they’ve ever seen.

The Crown is planning a potential dangerous offender application against the man following completion of an extensive forensic report. They also plan to show videotapes which depict some of the horrific crimes.

If successful, he would be given an indefinite prison sentence with no guarantee of ever being released.

Police arrested the accused last fall. He has now admitted to charges of sexual assault causing bodily harm, making child pornography, forcible confinement, use of a firearm, invitation to sexual touching, possession of child porn and careless storage of weapons.

The investigation began when one of the victims walked into a police station seeking help. She then outlined a series of incidents that occurred between 2002 and 2009 involving her and her sister while living with the accused in St. James.

Both victims were under the age of 14 throughout the time period, court documents say.

Police executed a search warrant in late September and seized a number of items, including electronic equipment.

Now that former cabinet minister Theresa Oswald has entered the NDP leadership race, do you believe the "gang of five" rebel ministers were right to publicly criticize Premier Greg Selinger's leadership?
