Court sentences man to 400-years in prison for raping his 10-year-old stepdaughter 900 times


A yet-to-be named auto electrician by trade based in South Africa has been sentenced to nine life terms in the Durban high court in South Africa for raping his 10-year-old for close to 1,000 times over five years.

The man who cannot be named to protect the identity of the child was further given a 173-year prison sentence after being found guilty of 56 counts relating to rape, human trafficking, sexual grooming, sexual abuse and distribution of child pornography.

Judge Mohini Moodley found the accused guilty of all 56 charges and said he should be registered as a sex offender and not be allowed near children.

Moodley said the stepfather had prostituted the child for financial gain and the investigating officer, Nevarge Lutchminarain of the Verulam family violence, child protection and sexual offences unit, should pursue charges against all those who abused the child sexually.

Private Security Company Reaction Unit SA (Rusa) spokesperson Prem Balram said they were called in for assistance after a group of residents had discovered horrifying videos of the rapes on the man’s mobile phone.

“His mobile phone was confiscated and several video recordings of rape were found. Recordings of other men and women engaged in sexual activity with the child were also found on the memory card. Pictures of the accused using woman’s lingerie were also discovered on the phone,” Moodley added.
