CINCINNATI (AP) — Police say a Cincinnati man raped his daughter over a period of 15 years, fathering two of her children.
The Cincinnati Enquirer <a target=”—blank” href=”https://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/crime/crime-and-courts/2018/03/05/police-man-raped-his-daughter-15-years-fathered-2-her-children/394954002/”>reports</a> that police say the man assaulted his daughter several times a month from when she was 10 until she left home at 25.
Hamilton County court records show he was indicted on 23 counts of rape and 18 counts of sexual battery. The man’s wife is charged with two counts of felony complicity.
Court documents show the victim has two children, ages 2 and 7. Prosecutors say genetic testing indicates the father is a close relative.
The man’s attorney, Brad Fox, said Tuesday the case is in its early stages and he’s still investigating.
This story has been corrected to show the man was charged with 41 total counts of rape or sexual battery, not 43 counts or with charges of endangering children.
