A 47-year-old man in Singapore was sentenced to 6 years imprisonment on 6 February, for committing incest with his daughter and consuming drugs.
Despite having left his wife and children to live with his mistress, he returned home to consume drugs with his eldest daughter and have intercourse with her.
Both the father and daughter cannot be identified due to a court order.
The man stayed with his then-wife at their matrimonial home and their 5 children, where he molested his eldest daughter multiple times when she was still in secondary school.
He then moved out and lived with his mistress from 2017 onwards, returning home on occasion.
His eldest daughter was introduced to methamphetamine in March 2019 and depended on her father for pocket money and illegal drugs.
He would share methamphetamine with her every 2 to 3 days and consume the drug with her in the master bedroom at night.
He would then have intercourse with her and commit incest after their family had gone to bed, and she was only 17 years old at the time.
The victim wanted to get married in July 2019 and told her boyfriend about her past, and she then reported the incest to the police in January 2021.
