Derry paedophile jailed for raping sister

A Londonderry man who sexually abused his sister over a six-year period – starting in 1989 when she was aged eight – has been jailed for 14 years.

Last month the 40-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was convicted by a jury of raping, attempting to rape, committing acts of gross indecency and of indecently assaulting his sister in their family home.

The now separated father-of-three, who still denies the charges, will be on licence for seven years after his prison release and he'll be on the sex offenders' register for life.

Judge Stephen Fowler told the abuser that he had subjected his sister to a prolonged, planned and escalated campaign of sexual abuse during which he took away his sister's innocence.
