Today just keeps getting weirder and weirder.
A 27-year-old father from Australia was just sent to jail for raping his daughter, stepdaughter, family dog and chickens, according to Daily Mail.
He will only be detained for three years because the judge was impressed by his "motivation" to recover.
The Adelaide man – whose name has not been disclosed – confessed to his now ex-wife in a note. It detailed how he sexually abused his daughter and stepdaughter. His ex-wife then contacted the police and reported the assault.
A report by ABC stated that while in court, the man pleaded guilty to bestiality, one count of persistent sexual exploitation of a child and one aggravated count of indecent assault.
He allegedly took the most advantage of his stepdaughter while she was asleep. The assault began to take place when she was 9 years old, and continued until she was 11.
His biological daughter, who was 3 at the time of abuse, was also sexually assaulted by the troubled man.
It didn't stop there, though.
The father also admitted in court that he sexually penetrated both the family's chickens and dog.
This was no surprise. It's been reported that he had been abused as a child, and had sexual relations with a dog before.
In a statement disclosed to ABC, the man's ex-wife proclaimed that her family never did anything to deserve such horrific abuse.
She allegedly said,
We didn't do anything wrong; my beautiful innocent children certainly never ever deserved to have such terrible violation occur on their bodies and hearts.
Apparently, the man is aware of how gruesome his actions are. He came clean to Judge Paul Muscat about his wrongdoings in Adelaide District Court.
To his surprise, the judge was impressed by his willingness to seek help. He reportedly said,
You appear determined and motivated to engage in treatment and address your abhorrent and abnormal sexual behaviors, which is imperative in order to reduce your risk of further sexual offending.
The sexually disturbed man was sentenced to six years and seven months in prison. But according to Daily Mail, he was given a three-and-a-half-year non-parole period when he was taken into custody in December 2015.
Now, he could possibly be released in less than three years.
