Man jailed 10 years for molesting lover's child


A man who sexually assaulted his lover's 10-year-old daughter 33 times over 21/2 years was jailed 10 years on Wednesday.

The 55-year-old former security guard had pleaded guilty to three counts of aggravated molestation by fondling and touching the victim's private parts in November and December 2006.

Thirty other charges of sexual exploitation of a child were taken into consideration.

The court heard that the accused, who cannot be named, was in a relationship with the victim's mother, a divorcee with four children, at the time. He has been married three times before.
