George - A 51-year-old man from George received 37 life sentences for raping seven of his daughter’s friends, police said on Wednesday.

"This was surely one of the toughest penalties ever," George police spokesperson Captain Malcolm Pojie said.

The rapist was sentenced in the Thembalethu Regional Court on Monday.

Pojie said the father was sentenced to a further 10 years behind bars for 30 charges relating to the creation of pornography.

The man drugged his daughter’s friends with strong anaesthetics when they had sleepovers.

"The man was accused of 3 033 charges on rape and possession of child pornography," he said.

His victims were between the ages of 10 and 12 when the incidents took place between 2012 and 2014.

Pojie said the man was arrested in December 2014.
