A New Jersey judge has added 50 years in prison for a man convicted of sexual assault against two of his daughters.

The Paterson man, a self-styled music producer, faced one of his daughters at a state Superior Court hearing on Friday. He was convicted in March of aggravated sexual assault.

The woman has said her father raped her and her sisters over a period of years.

“I can’t describe how much you hurt me and my sisters,” the daughter, now 35, said Friday to her father, shackled in a prison jumpsuit, his head still bowed, eyes never once meeting hers, according to The Record of Woodland Park.

The paper reports that the man, shackled and in a prison jumpsuit, burst out that the woman “should have told the truth.”

The woman and her sisters learned that the man had fathered more children with other women that they decided to go to the authorities in 2006, according to the report.

“We found out we had other siblings, young siblings, and we had to put him to a stop,” the daughter said after the sentencing hearing. “Even though we were healing, they could still fall victim.”

The man was already serving 40-years after being convicted of raping another of his daughters, who bore a fifth child. He faces three more trials.
