A man was sentenced to 12 years in prison after raping his 14 year old daughter in Hohhot, Inner Mongolia, Shanghai Daily reports.
The man surnamed Guo confessed to police that he raped his daughter during the Spring Festival when his wife was out. He admitted to having raped the girl several times in the past as well, according to officials.
The girl kept silent as she was worried that if her father was arrested it would tear apart the family as he was their only source of income.
However, the girl’s classmates and teacher noticed that she had been depressed since the spring semester began. When asked about what happened, she told the truth.
The girl’s mother went to police and the father was soon arrested.
