MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A Wisconsin man, accused of locking up his teenage daughter in a basement, was convicted by a jury on Friday.

The 42-year-old Madison man was found guilty of intentional child abuse, along with reckless endangerment and causing mental harm to a child.

According to court records, the teen was found wandering the streets after she ran away from home in February last year. She told investigators about a five-year nightmare of confinement and starvation, along with sexual abuse from her stepbrother.

The father took the stand on Thursday, saying his daughter suffered from severe behavioral problems and did his best to help her.

In order to protect the girl’s identity, the father has not been identified.
