AMSTERDAM – The court in Breda has sentenced 39-year-old J.S. from Amsterdam to five years in prison for the repeated rape of three children over the course of several years.

Starting in 1994 the man raped his own daughter and two stepchildren almost daily. The abuse started when the children were six. The mother of the children says she knew nothing about the abuse as she was seldom home.

The public prosecution had asked that the man be sentenced to six years in prison. The court wrote in its ruling that the man had damaged the children for life.

J.S.'s lawyer M. Stassen says his client is not guilty and is considering appeal.
