A father has been jailed for 16 months for playing "secret" sexual games with his six-year-old daughter.
The man - who cannot be named because it would identify his victim - acted out sexual scenarios with the girl on several occasions at his home in Richmond.
Calling it the "naked game," the middle-aged father carried out a number of sex acts on the girl, too graphic to be published.
The six-year-old had been visiting her father overnight as part of the visitation arrangement with the girl's mother, from whom the man was separated after a long relationship.
The sexual abuse came to light after the girl returned to her mother's home and later revealed that her father had touched her.
After being arrested by police in the early hours of the morning, the father broke down and confessed to the abuse.
Richmond Provincial Court was told Thursday how the girl later went into more details about being touched by her father and how they kissed each other on three occasions.
The mother and a family member, who were in court for the sentencing hearing, hugged and comforted each other throughout proceedings.
He pleaded guilty to four sexrelated charges, including sexual interference and invitation to sexual touching from a person under the age of 16. As well as the jail term, Judge Ron Fratkin ordered a three-year probation upon the man's release.
