The offending began when the complainant was about seven years of age. You were baby sitting her.
 You began by hugging her and touching the area of her vagina outside her clothing. You told her not to tell anyone as it was your secret.
 The offending then progressed to sexually violating the complainant by inserting your fingers in her vagina and your tongue in her vagina and forcing your penis into her mouth. When you did this the complainant was still a young child, seven to eight years of age. These events were happening regularly during this time.
 You then began to rape the complainant. The first occasion seems to have been when she was about nine years of age. Several specific incidents were described by her but it is clear that you moved then to regularly raping her, where you lived or where she lived, typically when you were baby sitting her. You continued to rape this child until she was approximately sixteen years of age.
 It is impossible now to know how many times this occurred but it is clear from her evidence many more than ten occasions. As I have said, the complainant described both specific occasions and gave general descriptions of many occasions.
 These sexual assaults finally finished when the complainant was old enough to stop you. You provided her with money, you promised her large sums of money, you gave her alcohol and cigarettes at an age when she was unable to make mature choices about either.
 You have a previous conviction of a similar indecent assault against a young girl you were also baby sitting as a friend of the family. She was a mature woman and gave compelling propensity evidence at your trial.
