Speaking to ABC4, the man said 'I wanted my kids to be educated, but it was hard to tell the difference between keeping it on an education level and not get involved in the sex part of it because, like I said, it was enjoyable'.
The man from Salt Lake in Utah also admitted that in addition to abusing his own children, he had also taken advantage of 21 other victims.
He first admitted the abuse to a church leader and ended up serving 22 years in jail between 1997 and 2009 after being found guilty of several crimes, including abusive sexual intercourse with a minor and sodomy with victims.
Speaking about his horrific crimes, the man claimed that they made him 'ill', but claimed he had been rehabilitated through intensive therapy, claiming he is no longer a danger to children.
'Therapy works if the person having the therapy believes in it, puts it into effect and understands it and they have to want to make it work,' he said.
'My main deterrent is knowing what I want for the future and to be with my family and to be a free person,' he added.
'I believe I'm the safest person in this neighbourhood'.
