(Criminal law / Sentencing)
The accused was convicted of sexually assaulting his daughter and of making, distributing and possessing child pornography.  The trial judge imposed the maximum sentence for sexual assault and a consecutive five years for the other charges.  Because of the offender's record, he was also found to be a long-term offender.  The Court upheld the sentence, finding that it was not demonstrably unfit.
