A 41-year-old man in Fresno, California has been sentenced to 1,503 years in prison for raping his teenage daughter over a four-year period.

The man was sentenced on Friday to the longest-known prison sentence in Fresno Superior Court history, the Fresno Bee reported.

A jury in September found him guilty of 186 felony counts of sexual assault, including dozens of counts of rape of a minor.

Prosecutors say the victim was raped two to three times a week from May 2009 to May 2013, when the girl finally got the courage to leave.

In his judgment, Judge Edward Sarkisian Jr. noted that Lopez violated a position of trust, engaged in violent conduct and is a danger to society.

"When my father abused me, I was young. I had no power, no voice. I was defenseless," said the daughter, who now is 23 years old. She also told the judge that her father never has shown remorse for her pain and suffering.
