The man, who cannot be named to protect to identity of the girl, indecently treated and raped his daughter in Queensland between 1998 and 2003 when she was aged between 11 and 15 at the time.

A court heard how the father told the girl she “needed to learn what a lady does” before the first “sickening assault”, the News-Mail reported.

The man also threatened to kill her if she told anyone about the abuse.

In one attack the man assaulted his daughter while she was watching TV while at another time he watched porn while he sat beside her.

After she had moved out he told her she could come round to have sex.

The man did not deny any of the charges.

Defence barrister Callan Cassidy said his client was remorseful.

Judge Leanne Clare described the man’s behaviour as “abhorrent” and jailed him for five years, which was suspended after just 20 months, on Friday.

The judge said: “She was your own daughter, you were meant to protect her, you were meant to be the person she could trust the most in the world, that is what father's are for.

“Instead you poisoned her most formative years, you took her childhood from her and you did it in the guise of a supposed practical lessons on safe sex.

“You made your own child feel like a sex object.”
