MUM who left dying daughter alone while she went to the pub has been sentenced to just three and a half years in jail.
Cold-hearted Sharon Goldie, 45, accused her 13-year-old daughter Robyn of faking illness and went to the pub instead of looking after her, the High Court in Edinburgh heard. Her daughter was dead in the living room of their Wishaw home from a perforated ulcer when Goldie returned later on the night of July 26, 2018.
Sentencing her to three and a half years in prison on Thursday, October 29, Lord Beckett said: “When your daughter became ill and was repeatedly trying to get to hospital you were substantially motivated by protecting yourself from closer scrutiny by the authorities which would have inevitably followed hospital admission.”
Goldie, of Lomond Drive, Wishaw, admitted wilfully ill treating and neglecting Robyn between July 12, 2017 and July 26, 2018.
At the High Court in Edinburgh Lord Beckett told Goldie: “Yours was a crime involving considerable cruelty over a long period.”
