A Melbourne man has been jailed for at least five-and-a-half years for having a sexual relationship with his daughter, on the pretext of sex education.

In sentencing the 44-year-old man, a Victorian County Court judge said the case was unusual and distressing.

The man pleaded guilty to incest after having a three-year sexual relationship with his daughter.

She was 14 when the abuse began.

He also pleaded guilty to producing and possessing child pornography featuring his daughter.

The court heard the teenager asked her father for guidance when she started dating a 15-year-old boy, but he started a sexual relationship with her under the guise of sex education.

She eventually told a friend who reported it to her school.

Police seized a computer hard drive containing 1,094 pornographic images and a video from the house.

The court heard the man tried to blame his daughter during a police interview, saying she had initiated the “unnatural relationship” and persistently asked for sex education so she could satisfy her boyfriend.

The judge said the man had shown no true remorse for exploiting his daughter’s trust and vulnerability.

He has been sentenced to eight years in jail, with a non-parole period of five-and-a-half years.

Intervention orders are in place to stop him contacting his three daughters until 2017.

The man will be a registered sex offender for the rest of his life.
