Georgian father sentenced for attempted rape of underage daughter
A Georgia man has been sentenced to four decades in prison after being found guilty of sexually assaulting his underage daughter.
Pierre Lang, 47, was convicted on Thursday of attempted felony rape, aggravated sexual assault, aggravated sodomy and incest, according to Fox 5 Atlanta.
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office opened a sexual assault investigation on April 16, when deputies were called to speak with a girl who had run away from her home.

The girl told an investigator that Lang was undressed lying in bed with her, touched her inappropriately, and forced her to touch him.
Lang stopped the abuse only after telling her she was tired, the girl said in her testimony.
As Lang was leaving, the girl grabbed her cell phone and took a picture of her naked body, officials said. She then ran out of the house and called law enforcement.
