Uncle gets 20 years' jail for raping niece
A 54-year-old man was jailed 20 years on Monday (Oct 26) for raping, molesting and sexually assaulting his young niece.
The food stall operator, who cannot be named due to a gag order to protect the girl's identity, sexually abused her seven times over two years.
He first assaulted her in 2010 when she was 12 in his HDB flat.
The man struck again in 2012.
He raped her on Dec 20, 2012, as his wife slept in the master bedroom.
The incidents came to light after the girl confided in her school counsellor in January 2013.
On Monday (Oct 26), the man pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual assault, one count of outrage of modesty and one count of rape.
