The golden time of childhood, unfortunately, is not for everyone the most rosy time in life. For this woman, and 20 years ago — a very young girl, this happy period turned into a living hell. The stepfather regularly bullied the girl and raped her, and she tried to prove the truth to everyone for two decades. Finally, she succeeded.

28-year-old Mary Doyle from Newport, Wales, did not use the right to anonymity and openly spoke about the atrocities of her stepfather, 52-year-old Mark Garnett. The criminal was sentenced to seven years in prison for indecent acts against a minor.Mary said that the monster sealed her mouth with tape to keep her quiet, and held her under water before raping her. This first happened when he took her into custody at the age of six, and then repeated several times.Only in 2011, the police began to investigate the case and, despite the statute of limitations of the crime, the stepfather was punished.
Mary doesn't understand why the investigation dragged on for so long, but she feels relieved after the verdict.
She wants to show other victims of violence that there is no need to be silent, no matter how much time has passed since the tragedy.Mark started dating the girl's mom when the baby was 4 years old. The man soon moved into their house, it happened in 1994. For the first time he abused a girl when she broke a light bulb. Mom was not at home at that time: she worked in a local pub and left her daughter under the supervision of her husband.
The pedophile stepfather came into the bathroom when the girl was washing and touched her. When she said she would complain to her mom, he put her head under the water and started threatening, so she was silent.
The girl constantly had nightmares, she had mental health problems.
Finally, in 2011, the Crown Prosecution Service reopened the case and investigated it to the end. The rapist stepfather received seven years in prison. The man denied all the charges, saying that his former stepdaughter was lying.
