A little girl was traumatized after being called a whore while a priest forced himself on her, according to court documents in Scotland.

Theresa Tolmie-McGrane of Norway said that the incident unfolded when she was 8-year-old.

She was living at the Smyllum Park orphanage in Lanark when a priest sexually abused her over a period of several months.

The Smyllum Park orphanage, which has been shut down, was run by the Daughters of Charity of St Vincent de Paul.

Tolmie-McGrane told a child abuse inquiry that she was placed in the orphanage when she was 6-year-old after suffering abuse at home.

When she turned 8-year-old, a priest told her to sit on his lap.

He then ordered her to perform a sex act on him.

The abuse continued for about 6 months.

One day, a nun walked in on them as she was performing a sex act on the priest.

At first, Tolmie-McGrane was happy to see that the priest was caught red-handed but instead of being rescued, she was blamed.

The nun yelled at her and called her a whore.

She then grabbed Tolmie-McGrane by the arm and threw her across the room.

As a result, Tolmie-McGrane’s arm broke.

Tolmie-McGrane quickly crawled away.

She later told another nun that her arm was broken.

The other nun warned her to keep quiet about the attack in order to protect the priest.

The nun took her to the hospital but warned her that she would break her other arm if she told anyone about the abuse.

When Tolmie-McGrane told other priests about the abuse, she was told to pray for him.

Officials of the Smyllum Park orphanage denied the allegations.
