Man convicted of raping daughter

A 44-year old man from Vetlanda, southern Sweden, raped and molested his own daughter, Eksjö district court ruled on Monday.

The social services in Vetlanda were severely criticized by the county administrative board in Jönköping for the way the family’s situation was handled.
