PATERSON - (AP) - A New Jersey man accused of sexuallyassaulting five of his daughters has been convicted of raping andimpregnating one of them.

The jury deliberated for less than three hours before findingthe man guilty on all of the eight counts against him.

Jurors heard extremely graphic testimony from the man's formerwife and a daughter, who says he raped her until she bore him achild. The women testified that he said he wanted to create"pure" family bloodlines.

Prosecutors say the man sexually assaulted five of hisdaughters, and he faces five separate trials. This was the first.

The Associated Press doesn't identify victims of sexual crimesand is not reporting the names of the man or his former wife toprotect the identities of their children.
