Mum who left dying daughter to go to pub to take part in death probe
The mother of her 13-year-old daughter, who went to a bar instead of seeking medical help before her death, is preparing to join the investigation into the teenager’s death.
Robyn Goldie developed peritonitis and died in July 2018 from a perforated duodenal ulcer after Sharon Goldie, 45, unsuccessfully sought medical treatment.
The High Court in Glasgow was told the teenager tried to seek treatment in the week before he died but Goldie stopped him from doing so.
Goldie later admitted intentional mistreatment and neglect of her daughter between July 2017 and July 2018 and was sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison in October 2020.
A fatal accident inquest into the circumstances of the death was ordered by Lord Advocate Dorothy Bain KC earlier this year.
It was heard at a preliminary hearing at Hamilton Sheriff Court that Goldie would attend the inquest, but Goldie did not attend the court in person today.
Fiscal Depute Aimee Doran said: ‘Sharon Goldie, the mother of the dead child, is now represented.
‘I understand that their lawyers were only instructed last Friday and that they have now applied to the legal aid board for sanction to require lawyers for any investigation.’
Goldie’s lawyer, Emma-Louise Loran, said she attended the hearing with “particular urgency” after being instructed to do so last week.
The court also heard from lawyers representing North Lanarkshire Council and social workers who had contact with Robyn before her death.
Council advocate Scott Blair said: ‘The local authority plans to find out what medical authorities knew and what might have been done in the situation.’
NHS Lanarkshire, Police Scotland and the Scottish Children’s Reporting Authority were asked in writing if they would like to take part in the investigation.
Sheriff Linda Nicolson ordered a new preliminary hearing for November.
The High Court in Glasgow previously heard Robyn developed peritonitis and subsequently suffered a perforated duodenal ulcer.
Goldie admitted that she did not provide her with adequate food, clothing or warmth, hit her and allowed her to smoke marijuana and alcohol.
He also admitted exposing himself to unhygienic living conditions such as cat urine and cat feces, which caused him to contract fleas.
Prosecutors pleaded not guilty to the involuntary manslaughter charge.
The court heard Goldie claimed Robyn was ‘wanting attention’ despite her suffering and pleading for help.
Jailing Goldie, Judge Lord Beckett said: ‘Your daughter, although tough and difficult at times, was subjected to appalling neglect and mistreatment by you over a long period of time.
‘You had enough money to provide food for your daughter, but instead you bought alcohol and marijuana and gave your daughter this instead of adequate nutrition.’
‘We urgently request any possible sightings or information that could help us locate Leah and confirm she is safe.’
