A MAN has been sentenced to ten years in jail after being found guilty of sexually abusing his underage niece in Mallorca.

The defendant, 30 and of Ecuadorian nationally, admitted in court to raping the girl, 11, more than ten times.

The abuse had begun in 2017 when the defendant moved in with his sister who had several young daughters. 

Shortly after arriving at the family home in Migjorn, the man began to grope the minor on the sofa and touch her in her intimate area.

Months later, the uncle forced his niece to have sex with him and on one occasion made her take a pregnancy test.

He would always threaten to kill the youngster if she said anything to her parents.

The abuse continued until September 2019 but was stopped when one of the girl’s sisters came home early and witnessed her uncle performing a sexual act on the child.

She proceeded to tell her parents who in turn alerted the Guardia Civil.

In addition to having to serve ten years in prison, the defendant must also pay the child €15,000 for psychological distress.

It comes after a father who repeatedly raped his young daughter until she became pregnant was sentenced to 12 years in jail.

The Sevilla man began raping his daughter when she was 12 and did not stop until October 3 2019, when, at 13, she was rushed to the medical centre with severe abdominal pain.

A paediatrician soon discovered that the girl was 21 weeks pregnant.
