Depraved paedophile raped his own daughter numerous times

A depraved paedophile that raped his own daughter numerous times has been jailed.

Unemployed Michael John Hill, 61 of Hereford appeared at Hereford Crown Court where he admitted four counts of rape against a child aged under 13

The court was told that the girl was just four years old when the abuse began and it continued for almost a decade until she reached 13 years old.

It was at this point that he declared to the girl, that he had no further sexual use for her and the abuse stopped.

Hill had denied the offences throughout the police investigation and during the lead up to his trial. However he dramatically pleaded guilty less than an hour before the trial took place. 

His admission to the four counts of child rape were accepted by the prosecution, and a further four counts of indecent assault on a child were allowed to lie on file.

Michael John Hill was sentenced to a total of 13 years and six months imprisonment

Hill was told that he would be on the sex offenders register for life
