Man Accused of Raping Daughter Formally Charged

Formal charges were filed Friday against a man accused of raping and molesting his own daughter.

11 News has chosen not to release the name of the suspect in order to protect the victim's identity.

Twelve counts of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust were filed by the District Attorney's Office.

The arrest affidavit states the 42-year-old had been sexually assaulting his daughter since she was 7-years-old.

He'll be back in court at the end of the month. Right now he's being held at the Mesa County Jail on a $100,000 bond.
