A 14-YEAR-OLD girl performed sexual acts on her father to satisfy her own erotic desires, the District Court was told yesterday. Her 53-year-old father, a waiter, admitted indecent assault, but claimed his daughter took the initiative. 'He behaved wrongly by not stopping her,' defence lawyer Geoffrey Chan said. 'He always loved the girl very much and he hates himself now for what he did.' In mid-1994, the girl was at home during school holidays and wandered into her parents' room for a rest. But her father was already lying on the bed. He began fondling his daughter's breasts. Then she gave him oral sex. Between October and November last year, the girl went to her parents' bedroom to fetch a book. Her father crept up behind her and wrapped his arms around her waist, then fondled her breasts. Five months later, he again groped her, this time asking her to stroke him through his trousers. The next day she told her mother and a school social worker what had happened and her father was arrested. Mr Chan pointed out the acts were short in duration, and that the girl had not removed any of her clothes. While she was growing up, the daughter had made a habit of sharing her parents' bed, Mr Chan told the court. 'When she was getting older and older this kind of relationship should have changed,' he said. 'They should have learned how to deal with it and that there is a line that should not be crossed.' Judge Gould said the 'line' should not have been difficult to detect. 'It should be a yawning great chasm,' he said. The judge adjourned sentencing until November 29 pending background and psychologist reports.
