Father touched daughter, court told

BY GEORGE JACKSON

A 12-year-old girl has told a jury at the Crown Court in Londonderry that she shouted "daddy, please get off" when her father allegedly indecently touched her last year when she was aged just 10-and-a-half.

The schoolgirl said that her father touched her in the bedroom of her family home on May 4, 2012.

At the time the defendant was babysitting his daughter when his estranged wife and his other daughter were at a family wedding in England.

In her recorded statement, which was made seven days after the alleged offence, to members of the PSNI's Child Abuse Investigation Unit, the schoolgirl said her father lay beside her on her bed and put his hand under the bedcover.

She said "he just futtered me," by touching her.

"I said get off daddy, please get off," she told the investigating police officer.

"I was shaking in my bed, I was really scared," she added.

The trial continues.
