A man has the confidence of his stepdaughter & # 39; in the most despicable way & # 39; betrayed by sexually abusing her and must be punished with imprisonment, a judge said.

Judge Frances Hogan described the abuse of the girl by the Melbourne man, when she was between 10 and 14 years old in the early to mid-1970s, as & # 39; treacherous & # 39; and with & # 39; horrible regularity & # 39 ;.

Now in her fifties, the victim was at Victoria County Court to face the man she once considered her father, who had given her a special feeling by calling her princess and angel.

A man has the confidence of his stepdaughter & # 39; in the most despicable way & # 39; betrayed by sexually abusing her and must be punished with imprisonment, a judge said.

The perpetrator, who turns 85 on Wednesday, has been detained prior to a hearing next week.

The man admitted the abuse earlier this year and pleaded guilty to three indecent indictments and one of gross indecentness, but the judge said it was late and she saw little evidence of regret.

The abuse began when he would drive her to a local mall and let her sit on his lap to steer the car around the empty parking lot for two years on Sundays.

He first touched her over her clothes, then under. The abuse escalated when she was 12, starting when she went into his bedroom to ask for money to buy lollipops.

The man pointed to loose change on his dresser and told her she could have it & # 39; as long as you stood there & # 39; while he touched her and later forced her to perform oral sex.

It happened regularly until she was 14.

If she wanted money or clothing, he looked up and down in her body and she knew what was expected, prosecutor Damien Hannan said.

& # 39; She was seduced in many of these things by feeling special, being rewarded and being threatened – it had to be kept secret. And it was, & he said.

The girl told her mother about the abuse when she was 12, but she was not believed and was grounded for two weeks instead.

She then remained silent for decades before telling her brother, who confronted the man.

& # 39; I know I've done wrong, but I can't change anything about it, & # 39; he replied.

It took a decade before she went to the police.

The man's lawyer, Kellie Blair, said he was suffering and at a time when he should be loved, cherished and surrounded by family, & # 39; he has none of it & & # 39 ;.

She said the man had cognitive problems, was depressed and had tried suicide before.

Mrs Blair argued for a suspended sentence and added that every prison sentence can be a life sentence.

Judge Hogan said the prison was the only suitable option.
