A former resident of east central Alberta was given a three-and-a-half year jail sentence in Red Deer provincial court after pleading guilty earlier in the year to sexual exploitation and the making of child pornography.

The 47-year-old man sexually assaulted a stepdaughter, who has diminished mental capacity. The man also videotaped his crime.

The events occurred repeatedly between June 2006 and January 2010.

The victim is now an adult.

The accused had previously served 90 days in jail after pleading guilty after Christmas to contacting the victim. He was found later in a hotel room with her.

He was also sentenced to another five weeks in jail for breaching conditions of an earlier recognizance not to contact the victim. He contacted the victim via text message on a disposable cell phone minutes after signing an order detailing his release conditions.

The 47-year-old man, who can’t be named because it could identify the victim, also had his name placed on a Canada-wide sex offender registry for life and he must surrender a sample of his DNA.
