Incest case opened

Father charged with sexual assault to daughter

WEATHERFORD — A 47-year-old Granbury man, arrested by the Parker County Sheriff’s Office Wednesday on a warrant for aggravated sexual assault of a child, faces allegations he impregnated his daughter four times, beginning when she was a teenager.

The Democrat is not publishing the man’s name to avoid identifying his daughter, named as the victim in the arrest warrant affidavit. The Democrat does not generally identify victims of sexual assault.

According to the probable cause affidavit, the woman told an investigator through a bilingual interpreter she was brought to Texas illegally at the age of 13 years old and began living with her father in the Silverado on the Brazos community.

The man allegedly told his daughter he could not look at her as his daughter, and they began sharing a bedroom.

He reportedly began having sex with her about a month after she began living with him and continued for 14 years, with the last reported assault taking place in May, in a vehicle in the hunting grounds of Silverado on the Brazos.

Her father reportedly forced her to have sex or perform sexual acts nightly, then weekly for about four years, then biweekly when he began dating his current wife and, when she was out of the residence, when he was alone with her, according to the affidavit.

She reportedly became pregnant early on by her father and gave birth, according to the court document.

She told the investigator she became pregnant again when she was 19 or 20 years old and was sent to Mexico to have the pregnancy terminated.

She reportedly miscarried when she was 25 and had a fourth pregnancy terminated this year at a Dallas clinic.

The sheriff’s office took a report Monday and a warrant was issued Wednesday.

The man is also being held on an Immigrations and Customs Enforcement hold and bond has not been set on the first degree felony charge, according to jail records.
