The devastated mother of a youngster who committed suicide has spoken out about how her daughter was “damaged” by years of sexual torture at the hands of her own father.
At Glasgow High Court, Joseph McGinn was convicted of sexually abusing Megan and a second unknown victim and sentenced to 18 years in prison.
On the other hand, Gemma said that after his sentence, her daughter was so “damaged” by the abuse that she couldn’t come to terms with how it made her feel.
The grieving mother reportedly stated that Megan was “crushed” by the response of some extended family members who called the daughter a “liar.” “Megan was a lovely kid, but what occurred to her left her heartbroken and broken,” Gemma continued.

Who Is Megan Reid And What Happened To Her?
Megan Reid was a teenager who took her own life after being sexually abused by her dad at the age of 17.
Megan, a 17-year-old from Livingston in West Lothian, died on April 5th. Gemma remembered her daughter as a “bright, lively, and intellectual” girl who was her “best companion.” Megan even wrote in her heartbreaking suicide letter that she loved her mother so much and asked her not to blame herself.
Her father was sentenced to 18 years after he was found guilty of sexually assaulting Megan and one more woman, whose name has not been disclosed yet.
Parental alienation is as toxic as physical or sexual abuse, and should be treated accordingly.
