A Nelson man who filmed himself sexually violating his partner's nine-year-old daughter in bed has been sentenced to prison in what a judge has labelled "very, very serious offending".

The 31-year-old man was granted permanent name suppression in the Nelson District Court on Wednesday, when he was sentenced to two years and seven months imprisonment on a number of sex charges including unlawful sexual connection, indecent assault, making and possessing objectionable publications.

The court heard how the man sexually violated and filmed the girl while his partner was away for a weekend last September.

When police questioned the man the following week, he admitted the offending and that he took other recordings that night he'd since deleted.
