A 50-year-old San Mateo man accused of molesting his paralyzed 11-year-old daughter while her mother took walks is charged with nearly four dozen felonies for the alleged two-year span of abuse.
The man, whom the Daily Journal is not naming to protect the identity of the alleged victim, appeared in court Tuesday afternoon and pleaded not guilty to all 42 charges. He remains in custody on $600,000 bail.
The girl, who is paralyzed and requires a wheelchair, told the school principal that her father molested her between fifth- and seventh-grade on a monthly basis while her mother was away from the family home on walks. The principal contacted San Mateo police and the girl further detailed multiple acts of oral copulation and one act of sodomy, prosecutors said.
The girl called her father at police request during which he made multiple admissions of guilt, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
He returns to court July 16 to set a preliminary hearing.
