Man rapes daughter 288 times, impregnates her

Jordanian dad sentenced to death; she was abused since age 11

A Jordanian court sentenced a man to death after he was convicted of raping his daughter 288 times over a period of nearly five years, leading to her pregnancy.

The court convicted the 49-year-old man after DNA and semen tests showed he raped his own daughter and that the baby was his.

Newspapers in the capital Amman said the man, who was arrested in 2008, had threatened to kill his daughter in case she reported him.

They said the girl later told her brother after learning she was pregnant from her father, adding that the brother reported his father to the police.

The reports did not make clear if the death sentence would be implemented after Jordan halted executions in 2006.
