In announcing the punishment, 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 S3xually 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.

In September, a jury found him guilty of 186 felony counts of S3xual assault, including dozens of of minor. The daughter, who is now 23 told the judge that her father has never shown remorse for her pain and suffering.
“When my father abused me, I was young. I had no power, no voice. I was defenseless,”
Before his preliminary hearing, he turned down two guilty pleas. If he had admitted  his guilt, prosecutors would have recommended 13 years in prison. But he rejected the offer, saying he should be released from jail for the time he already served.
“He ruined her teenage years and made her feel like it was her fault,” Galstan said.
