A 38-year-old man has been sentenced to four and a half year in prison for sexually abusing his partner’s daughter in Denia.
According to reports, the abuse took place over a period of three years between 2008 and 2011, and took place in the home he shared with the girl’s mother. The girl was between eight and 11-years-old when the abuse took place.
The ruling issued by the Provincial Court in Alicante said that the accused repeatedly entered the bathroom and surprised the child when she was in the shower.
The series of events took place back in April 2012, and was brought to the attention of the authorities after the girl eventually told her grandmother what had happened.
In addition to the prison sentence the court has imposed a supervision order of five years after his release, bans the man from approaching the victim for nine and a half years, and must also pay €3,000 in damages to the child.
