Father jailed for 1,500 years for raping teenage daughter

41-year-old described as a 'serious danger to society' sentenced to 1,503 years in prison for raping his daughter over a four-year period

A California man was sentenced to 1,503 years in prison for raping his teenage daughter over a four-year period. 

The 41-year-old was sentenced on Friday to the longest-known prison sentence in Fresno Superior Court history, the Fresno Bee reported. 

In announcing the punishment, Judge Edward Sarkisian Jr. told the man he is a “serious danger to society” and noted that he had never shown remorse and has blamed his daughter for his predicament.

The man's daughter was first sexually abused by a family friend but instead of protecting her, he turned her into “a piece of property,” prosecutor Nicole Galstan said. 

The victim was raped two to three times a week from May 2009 to May 2013, when the girl got the courage to leave him, Galstan said. 

In September a jury found him guilty of 186 felony counts of sexual assault, including dozens of counts of rape of a minor.

“When my father abused me, I was young. I had no power, no voice. I was defenseless,” said the daughter, who now is 23 years old. She also told the judge that her father has never shown remorse for her pain and suffering.

The man turned down two plea deals. Before his preliminary hearing, if he had admitted his guilt, prosecutors would have recommended 13 years in prison. He rejected the offer. Then before his trial, he was offered 22 years in prison if he admitted his guilt.
