Dad got adopted daughter pregnant three times

CALGARY - Psychiatric testing has been ordered for a Calgary man who got his adopted daughter pregnant three times - one which ended in childbirth.

The man, who can't be named to protect his victim's identity, pleaded guilty Thursday to charges of sexual assault and sexual exploitation.

He admitted having a regular sexual relationship with a young girl he and his wife took in when she was abandoned by her mother.

Crown prosecutor Pam McCluskey told Justice Kristine Eidsvik the abuse began when the victim was 14 years old.

"The accused asked her to have sex with him," McCluskey said.

"The first time he asked she 'chickened out'," the prosecutor said.

Eventually, they began having unlawful sex, which ultimately resulted in the girl becoming pregnant in 2006.

The victim "did not realize she was pregnant until she went into labour," McCluskey said, reading from an agreed statement of facts.

The girl kept the baby, who ended up being cared for by the offender and his wife, she said.

After the victim recovered from childbirth the offender continued his predatory ways, resuming the assaults within three months.

She became pregnant a second time in spring 2007, but this time the fetus was aborted.

She also got pregnant a third time, but instead of going to the offender she went to his wife, who reported it to Child and Family Services and the police were brought in, McCluskey said.

The girl had her second abortion in June 2008 when she was 16 years old.

Eidsvik, who detained the offender pending sentencing, ordered a psychiatric and risk assessment be completed.

A sentencing date will be set May 20.
