In 2012, a woman named Brittney allowed her father, 36-year-old Jason Michael Grant to babysit her 14-month-old daughter.

Grant raped the infant while his girlfriend, 24-year-old Alisha Marie Drake allegedly filmed it. Drake was convicted on child pornography charges in 2013, but her conviction was overturned and she will face a new trial, Houston Press reported.

Grant was convicted of aggravated sexual assault  and on Feb. 3, a judge sentenced him to 99 years in prison - the maximum possible punishment. He isn’t eligible for parole because the victim was so young, the Associated Press reported via the Houston Chronicle. In this case, justice was delayed because Grant was found incompetent to stand trial in February, but in October he was reevaluated and the case went to court. 

Brittney hasn’t seen her daughter in more than a year. The victim, who is now 5 years old, was placed with Child Protective Services four years ago, FOX 26 reported.
