SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A sex offender is facing life in prison after being convicted of sexually abusing his adult daughter, prosecutors said Wednesday.

Clive McGaw, 65, was convicted of three counts of sexual abuse of a dependent adult and one count of failing to register as a sex offender, which makes him eligible for a sentence of life in prison due to California’s Three Strikes Law.

The Sacramento Police Department arrested McGaw in February 2008 after staff members at the UC Davis Medical Center saw him kissing and being groped by his 25-year-old daughter, who has Down syndrome.

Investigators determined that McGaw hadn’t registered as a sex offender after past convictions of sexual abuse of two other children.

McGaw’s sentencing hearing has been scheduled for April 8.

    why are we paying for another person to serve a life sentence? Push him threw to death row and actually use it this time. As if molesting your own child wasn’t bad enough, he went after a victim that had no way of knowing what he was doing could possibly be wrong.I think if we should let the other inmates know what he is convicted of and let it be handled in general population. It would save the tax payers a lot of money!

    This individual is why we voted for the three strikes law.

    It is not right to wish bad things on people to show them that bad things are wrong..

      It ought to be an eye for an eye. If people were made to realize what it is they are doing – or feared having it done to them in turn – they would not do it.

    taking advantage of his own mentally challenged child! he needs alot of “jailhouse” justice. now the state has to pay for his upkeep!not fair. fry him!

  5. Cleotis says:

    Let all of his cell mates know what he is in for also.
    If “action” is what he wants action he will get.

  6. growup says:

    I believe that this man needs to be where he is. And he should have been there long ago.
    However, wishing him raped, murdered or mutilated makes us just as bad as him in so many ways.
    Had any of you been thru this kind of treatment, no matter what happens around you, you would not wish it on ANY one.

      Birds of a feather flock togather, in other words moron, It wouldn’t happen to the rest of us because we don’t allow our childen to grope us and french kiss us reguardless of there mental state. The reason that mr sicko does this with his daughter is because he wasn’t able to get away with this type of behavior on our kids because being responsible mom’s and dad’s we don’t let our kids out of our sight. Instead he picks a victim that he can control and manipulate, how convenent to have her under his own roof.

  9. Ginger Reese says:

    Why do we have to wait untill April 8th. I say lock him up and throw away the key NOW. What was he thinking that daughter didn’t know any better because she was never taught. They are a lot smater than we think.

  10. ihatethenannystate says:

    The system is also responsible for letting him out the first time! How long are we going to tolerate them releasing these pigs back into society. Once a molester ALWAYS a molester,

  11. trj says:

    WOW! Yet there was a sheriff where I live who gave his daughter meth and then raped her and all he got was 1 year in jail and does not have to register as a sex offender. Talk about the good ol boys system.

    1. Cathy says:
