‘Evil mon­ster’ sent down for sex abuse

Mum of lit­tle girls tells of rage to­wards pae­dophile

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - News - Amanda Keenan

An Air­drie-born pae­dophile, branded “the devil in­car­nate” by the mother of two young girls he abused, has been jailed.

De­praved Gor­don Ram­say, 46, de­stroyed the sis­ters’ and an­other young girl’s child­hoods, over an eightyear pe­riod.

Orig­i­nally from Glen­mavis, church­goer Ram­say hid his sick perver­sions un­der a cloak of re­spectabil­ity.

The girls’ mum, who can­not be named for le­gal rea­sons, said: “My eight-year-old is so trau­ma­tised that she said she wants to kill her­self.

“He’s an evil mon­ster who has de­stroyed both of my girls’ in­no­cence.

“Ev­ery­one thought he was a de­cent and re­spectable bloke.

“Now I know he was the com­plete op­po­site – to me, he is the devil in­car­nate. He’s ripped our fam­ily apart and robbed both girls of their child­hood. It’s a com­plete night­mare that’s never go­ing to leave them.”

Ear­lier this month, Ram­say was sen­tenced to four years for abus­ing the girls.

The dev­as­tated mum said she had no idea the abuse was tak­ing place un­til her youngest girl con­fided in her.

She added: “I had come home from work and my daugh­ter, who was seven at the time, said; ‘I don’t like it when he touches me there’.

“She showed me and my heart sank. I was in to­tal shock and asked if it had ever hap­pened be­fore and she said sev­eral times.

“She said he had even touched her that morn­ing while I was at work.

“When I found out, the rage just tore through me. I went into the kitchen and picked up a pair of scis­sors. If he had come through the door at that point, God only knows what would have hap­pened.

“I’ve never felt anger like that. Just know­ing he had touched my daugh­ter made my blood boil.”

The woman took the girl to po­lice, where she had to en­dure a painful did I think he was ca­pa­ble of some­thing like this.

“He’s shown no re­morse and has no idea of the dam­age he’s caused. Both my girls are strug­gling to cope.

“No mother wants to see her kids in pain and what he’s done is be­yond sick.”

Greenock Sher­iff Court heard Ram­say as­saulted one child so bru­tally that she was in tears from the pain.

He abused the younger sis­ter in Oc­to­ber 2016. The el­der sis­ter was aged be­tween seven and nine when he at­tacked her be­tween June 2008 and Novem­ber 2010.

From De­cem­ber 2010 to Oc­to­ber 2013, he re­peat­edly sex­u­ally as­saulted the third child; Ram­say com­mit­ted the of­fences at var­i­ous ad­dresses in Greenock.

He ini­tially de­nied he had abused the chil­dren, but later pled guilty.

The sis­ters’ mum was in court to see the per­vert jailed and called his fouryear sen­tence an in­sult to the vic­tims.

She added: “He looked at me in court and I could tell he was feel­ing sorry for him­self. He’s in­ca­pable of re­morse.

“As he was be­ing led away in hand­cuffs, I looked at him and mouthed; ‘I hope you suf­fer ev­ery day of your life’.

“He will be out in a few years, yet my girls have to live with what he has done for­ever.

“It sick­ens me to think that he could do this to an­other fam­ily and that’s why I have cho­sen to speak out.

“I want ev­ery par­ent to look at the pic­tures of this per­vert and never al­low him near their chil­dren.

“He’s a dan­ger­ous man and I don’t think jail will change him one bit.”
