TheStar.com - News - Man jailed for infecting girl, 5

TheStar.com - News - Man jailed for infecting girl, 5: "An HIV-infected dad who breached his “sacred trust” of parenthood and gave his 5-year-old daughter gonorrhea has been sentenced to three years in jail.

His little girl was “a helpless child who loved and trusted her father,” said Superior Court Justice Bonnie Croll.

There is a chance that his daughter will suffer from future infertility, the judge noted.

Last October, Croll found the 47-year-old man, who cannot be named, guilty of sexual assault causing bodily harm and the sexual touching of his daughter in July 2001
."

Three years in jail seems almost excessive, no? Maybe the judge should have taken away his driver's license and demand that he refrain from raping his own daughter in the future, under penalty of house arrest.
