Quick reminder first… it’s Father’s Day this weekend! So don’t forget to say thanks to the men in your life, we’re sure they’d all love a fry up in bed on Sunday. But the occasion is also a stark reminder that not everyone’s lucky enough to have a reliable and honest father figure. This week we’ve had two stories published where sadly our clients have been let down in a huge way.
SISTER ACT: “MUM CHOSE OUR ABUSER OVER US”
When sisters Claire, Julie and Sharon were abused as children by their stepdad they naturally assumed their mum would stand by them. But she didn’t. The sexual abuse remained secret until Lenny, 65, was convicted in 2011. Surely their mum, Anne would support them now? Incredibly, Anne, 61, stood by Lenny and took him back when he was released from prison. She even blamed her daughters for their split. The sisters revealed how their sick stepdad split their family apart in That’s Life magazine.
BETRAYED! ROBBED — BY MY LONG-LOST DAD
Amanda, 41, was thrilled when she was reunited with her father Geoffrey after nearly 30 years apart following her parents’ divorce. Geoffrey was the doting grandad… until it was revealed the disgraced solicitor had secretly been stealing thousands of pounds. He was found guilty of swiping £165,000 from clients and jailed. Now Amanda wishes she’d never reunited with her deceitful dad. Her story is in Bella magazine.
