Man Charged in Relation to Sexually Assaulting his Daughter
Release Date: March 23, 2018
A 37-year-old Smiths Falls man has been charged by Kingston Police for sexually assaulting his pre-teen daughter.
In March 2018, Kingston Police were contacted by Children’s Aid Society as a result of information received of sexual assaults against a youth. Detectives with the Kingston Police Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Unit began an investigation and learned multiple incidents occurred between 2014 and 2017 when the victim was between 10 and 13 years of age. The assaults took place while the family resided in Kingston.
The accused was arrested and held to attend a bail hearing. He has been arrested and charged with sexual assault and sexual interference.
Kingston Police want to let victims of sexual assault know that it is their choice to disclose the incident to police. If you have been sexually assaulted or abused and are uncertain what to do, please attend the hospital and see the caring and compassionate staff at the Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence clinic (SADV). The staff can help you with counselling and coping strategies in addition to providing testing for sexually transmitted diseases and providing access to HIV medication. If you are willing the staff will also complete the sexual assault evidence kit. Evidence can be collected up to twelve days following a sexual assault. Depending on the circumstances it may be possible for DNA evidence to be obtained from clothing after it has been washed. Your confidentiality is guaranteed and police will only be contacted by the hospital if you request it at the time. The SADV clinic will store the contents of the kit for a preliminary period of 6 months which offers a victim time to gather information on the process and decide on how they want to proceed.
