CAL­I­FOR­NIA — A 41-year-old Fresno man has been sen­tenced to 1 503 years in pri­son for rap­ing his teenage daughter over a four-year pe­riod.

The Fresno Bee re­ports the man was sen­tenced Fri­day to the long­est-known pri­son sen­tence in Fresno Su­pe­rior Court his­tory.

A jury in Septem­ber found him guilty of 186 felony counts of sex­ual as­sault, in­clud­ing dozens of counts of rape of a mi­nor.

Pros­e­cu­tors say the vic­tim was raped two to three times a week from May 2009 to May 2013, when the girl got the courage to leave.

Judge Ed­ward Sark­isian Jr noted that Lopez had never shown re­morse and has blamed his daughter for his predica­ment. — AFP
