The daughters of a man who pleaded guilty in Manhattan Supreme Court to repeatedly raping and abusing them for over a decade hope their father “rots in prison.”
Alex Lino pleaded guilty to three counts of sexual conduct against a child in the first degree and one count of sexual conduct against a child in the second degree Monday. He will spend 25 years in state prison with 20 years of post-release supervision.
“They suffered in silence year after year not knowing that separately they were being abused,” said Assistant District Attorney Kristen Caruso.
According to a victim’s statement read by Caruso, Lino regularly physically and sexually assaulted his daughters, and would only let the girls leave the house after he raped them. Over the decade-long abuse, he impregnated at least one of his daughters.
