Man handed prison term for molesting his daughters By Rana Husseini
AMMAN Ã¢â‚¬â€ The Criminal Court has sentenced a 50-year-old Arab national to nine years and eight months in prison after convicting him of molesting his two daughters for the past 14 years.
The factory employee told his daughters that what he was doing with them was normal, according to court papers.
The girls informed their mother about the molestation a few months before the defendant was arrested and she confronted her husband, the court said.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“At first, the defendant denied any wrongdoing but later admitted to his wife that he was molesting his children and promised not to repeat it,Ã¢â‚¬Â the court said.
Court transcripts said the defendant also used to physically abuse his wife and daughters and beat them with his hands and a wooden stick.
On January 20, the defendant had a fight with his wife and threatened to kill her with his shotgun, the court said.
Question: Is 9.8 years enough for 14 years worth of molestation?
