    Woman 'forced to work naked as domestic slave'

    By Paul Stokes
    (Filed: 06/09/2006)
    A young woman was starved while being held captive by her sister-in-law and forced to work naked for nine months as a domestic slave, a court was told yesterday.
    Veronica Sandeman, 26, said she was too frightened to fight back as she was subjected to prolonged mental and physical torture by Antonia Pearson-Gaballonie.
    She finally escaped after her tormentor hacked off her hair, held a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her, York Crown Court heard.


    Miss Sandeman had turned to her soldier brother, Steven, for support as a teenager while having a difficult relationship with her divorced parents in Scotland.
    She went with him and Pearson–Gaballonie, 35, who has Addison's Disease and needed a wheelchair then, to work as their nanny when he was posted to York in 1997.
    The couple had a baby, two children from Pearson-Gaballonie's previous relationship, and went on to marry and have a second child of their own. But, when Steven Sandeman was posted to Wiltshire, his wife refused to move and Miss Sandeman was left with her and the children.
    Pearson-Gaballonie soon started a relationship with another man, had another child in 2001 and Steven Sandeman stopped visiting them altogether by the end of 2002.
    The court heard that Pearson-Gaballonie now "firmly ruled" the house and Miss Sandeman, who was isolated from her family, with no friends, was looking after all five children.
    She told the jury: "If I had not cleaned the house to her standard or if I answered back I would get punched in the face or slapped or kicked. I got hit with a black studded belt and sometimes it was a wooden rolling pin with handles on it.
    "She would grab my hair and start banging my head against the floor and she would hit me in the face and stomach and chest. I was too frightened to fight back."
    The court heard that Pearson-Gaballonie confiscated all Miss Sandeman's clothes about nine months before she escaped. The prosecution said it resulted in her "becoming a prisoner in the house".
    She was forced to clean the house while completely naked in front of six children and Pearson-Gaballonie's second husband, Neil Pearson.
    Miss Sandeman said: "She told me to take all my clothes off and put them in a black bag. She went upstairs and got the rest of my clothes and said she was going to burn them."
    She also said she had been forced to beg for food after her brother left and Pearson had moved in.
    She described being allowed to wear clothes as a one-off to go to Pearson's parents' home for dinner on Christmas Day 2004. "It went down very well because before that I hadn't had anything to eat for three weeks," she said. "I wasn't allowed to take food and I didn't like the idea of asking."
    But Miss Sandeman said that she was attacked by Pearson-Gaballonie that night and was beaten on her bare back and shoulders with a studded leather belt because the house was not cleaned properly.
    She said Pearson pinned her arms above her head while Pearson-Gaballonie used scissors to cut clumps of hair from her head, jabbing the scissors into her face.
    Pearson-Gaballonie then held a serrated kitchen knife to her throat and told her: "No one would care if you were dead."
    Three days later she found some of Pearson's old clothes in the garage and put them on before running to a neighbour's house for help.
    She was taken to hospital and Pearson-Gaballonie was arrested.
    Andrew Kershaw, prosecuting, said the first physical attack took place on New Year's Eve 2002 when Miss Sandeman sneaked out of the house to call her parents.
    Pearson-Gaballonie is alleged to have punched her so hard in the face her cheek burst and to have snapped the SIM card in her mobile phone to prevent her making calls.
    Mr Kershaw told the jury: "You may see a pattern of domestic slavery emerging. Veronica was expected to clean the whole house."
    Pearson-Gaballonie denies false imprisonment, making threats to kill and six counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm. Pearson denies aiding and abetting an assault. The hearing continues.

    I was going to put this under Bizarre News Stories. There is a 1% possibility there's nothing else to it though.

    She was so mentally tortured that she felt she *could not* escape.

    That is just terrible.

    Re: Woman 'forced to work naked as domestic slave'

    i actually have just moved into the house where this all happened. I had no idea of the history of what went on until the electricians told us when i moved in!
    We have a room upstairs that has steps leading to the attic. When opened up the attic, there was proof that somebody had lived up there, so we think thats where the woman was made to sleep.

    The attic has now been locked as the history of this house saddens me and i have to live there

    Im just trying to read up on what happened as i have only been told parts of different stories.

    I would take a guess that the woman in question, (the slave) has some mental and emotional problems that aided her in becoming a victim. Any woman with a thimbleful of common sense would have simply wrapped a bed sheet or curtain around herself and left the house. But if she had no where to go this may have added to the problem.

    The mentality of the other 2 is beyond my comprehension. There is something very,very wrong with any woman who forces another woman to run around the house naked in front of children and her man. I think that what is needed is a whack of psychiatrists for all of them.

    Whew... thats quite an assumption there.
    Fear alone is enough to make any person a 'victim'.
