A man who molested his stepdaughter has signed over his house to support her and her mother while he is in jail.
Brisbane Criminal Lawyers at Bosscher Lawyers’ Anna Smith told a court yesterday that her client knew he would emerge from prison with nothing and have to start again.
“This action demonstrates genuine remorse for his offending,” Ms Smith said.
The man, 57, pleaded guilty in Maroochydore District Court to nine sex offences against the nine-year-old.
The charges included six counts of indecent dealing, two counts of rape, and maintaining a sexual relationship with a child, ending in September last year.
