Dunedin, New Zealand (The Weekly Vice) - A 32-year-old father from New Zealand and his 18-year-old daughter have been ordered by a judge to end their incestuous relationship after the couple had a child together and insisted they were in love with one another.
The unnamed couple, who pleaded guilty to one count of incest last June, appeared in Dunedin District Court on Tuesday for sentencing.
According to prosecutors, the father began an incestuous relationship with his daughter when she turned 16. The couple, who have lived together as "man and wife" for about two years, have a 1-year-old child together.
The teenager told the court that she was in love with her father and considered him to be her husband.
According to court records, the man's daughter was conceived during an incestuous relationship that he had with his foster mother. The alleged mother/son relationship took place when the father was 13-years-old and his foster mother was 30-years-old.
The male suspect's daughter was born about a year after he began having a sexual relationship with his foster mother. He had little contact with his daughter until 2010 when he was reunited with his daughter. The relationship became sexual after several visits together.
The judge reportedly sentenced the father to 300 hours of community service and a year of supervised probation. He has been banned from being in the company of his daughter unless an approved adult is supervising.
The daughter was sentenced to 1 year of supervised probation and counseling at a sex abuse treatment center.
The judge warned the couple that it is "highly likely" they would be sentenced to jail time if the couple appears before him on similar charges.
