Vietnamese man sentenced to 17 years in prison for raping his underage daughter

Vietnamese man sentenced to 17 years in prison for raping his underage daughter

The People’s Court in Vietnam’s Central Highlands province of Gia Lai pronounced on Friday a jail sentence of 17 years on a 40-year-old man, who was found guilty of raping his own underage daughter three times.

The judge handed down the penalty to Ly Van Sung, 40, for raping an under 13-year-old person.

Sung has been living with his then-nine-year-old daughter in Kbang District since 2017 after his wife and older son left their house.

Between 2020 and April 2022, Sung molested his daughter three times, with the daughter less than 13 years old in the first two times.

It was not until May 2022 that a woman at the daughter’s part-time job found the child had unusual symptoms and took her to doctor. 

The results showed that the girl was at 22 weeks pregnant, so the woman reported the case to police.

After that, Sung went to the Kbang District police office to surrender and confessed his crime.

On September 11, 2022, Sung’s daughter gave birth to a boy. 

The conclusion of a DNA examination determined that the boy was Sung’s son.
