Daughter left disgusted with paedo dads statement blaming her for abuse

A woman who was just age two when she began suffering horrendous sexual abuse at the hands of her own father was left "disgusted" after finding out he tried to blame her for the 15-year ordeal.

Emily Victoria, from Dorset, was molested throughout her childhood, right up until she left home aged 17, and her father would even have sex with her – initially using condoms, but then placing her on the pill.

Now 31, the businesswoman has told of her horrifying ordeal in a new Channel 4 documentary – A Paedophile in My Family: Surviving Dad.

Emily, who has two brothers and children of her own now, says when she was growing up in a remote village of Dorset, her family looked like any other.

Emily thought she was a lone victim, until she saw one of the foster children comforting him in the same way she felt she had to.

"I didn't consider telling anyone anything until I was about 17. I started to suspect he was hurting other children," she reflected.

"Something snapped in me and changed."

A few weeks after her realisation, in November 2009, Emily reported the abuse to the police.

During the documentary, she was reunited with police officers Tony O'Connell and Helen Deakin – who had first been involved in the case.

Tony said Emily's father was "nervous" but then "opened up", reading the interview notes aloud: "'[I was] happily married at the start, never watched kiddie porn, don't know why it happened.

"'Emily was a very sexual kid, some kids are. Don't know if that's what switched me on. Can't remember exactly how it started.

"'Emily would do stuff to herself, I caught her one day.'"

He paused, and then addressing Emily, he said: "So that's the start of his narrative, he's not a sex offender or into kiddie porn, it's about you and what you did to him."

Emily responded: "It's so interesting because the earliest memories I have, as a toddler, of him like poking me and everything, why did he think a child behaves a certain way?

"It's because you're teaching them."

Continuing to read the notes, Tony recalled how the dad had recalled the abuse in his mind.

The notes read: "'[She was] sat on bed, straddled me, started moving on me. Didn't stop her immediately. Could feel she was quite turned on I guess.'

"'[I] felt guilty, usual stuff. Feelings came up again, sexually aroused, guilty. It just progressed.

"He said '[we had a] brilliant father-daughter relationship and [that I] didn't do anything she didn't want.'

"'[It was a] very gentle, wrong but a very loving relationship. [I] didn't have to force her or tell her not to tell.'"

Stunned Emily then asked if her father ever felt remorse, to which Tony responded: "There was no part of him that felt bad over what had happened."

Emily added: "I just feel a bit sick. His narrative that he put there was what he was trying to put on me the whole time. Everything was my fault, even outside of that nonsense."

Her dad was sentenced to 14 years in prison but was recently released.

During the show, it shows Emily speaking with a restorative justice specialist as she attempts to meet with him.

However, the dad, who was unemployed and living in council accommodation, turned down her offer.
