Stepfather jailed for eight years for sexually abusing young stepdaughters


A man from Zeeland who sexually abused his two stepdaughters from the age of eight and prostituted one of them to strangers when a teenager has been jailed for eight years, to be followed by psychiatric prison.

Pascal P was found guilty of abusing the girls between 2008 and 2019 as well as trafficking one of the girls by taking her to a car park and swingers clubs where she was also abused. He was also found guilty of making and distributing child pornography.

The sentence is longer than that demanded by the public prosecution department and would have been longer still but for the fact that he cannot be held completely liable because of diminished responsibility, the court said. P was also sexually abused as a child and was jailed in 2004 for sexually abusing under-aged girls.

The mother of the two girls is also facing charges for facilitating the abuse but her case will be dealt with later.
