The Haifa District Court sentenced a 50-year-old resident of the north to 17 years in prison for committing sodomy and raping his daughter several times in a period of six months.

He threatened the 14-year-old girl that he would kill her if she did not obey him, and that if she told anyone what he had done to her, he would kill himself.

In addition to sexual offenses, the father carried out acts of violence on the girl for years, police sources said.
