What made this home invasion more chilling was that it was carried out by a Mother and daughter, the daughter only being 15 at the time.

This is a story of a brutal home invasion, the victims whose names have been withheld were at the hands of their attackers for hours. What made this home invasion more chilling was that it was carried out by a Mother and daughter, the daughter only being 15 at the time. Sharon Tiernan 36 and her daughter Leanne 15 committed the most horrendous acts against their victims. As such some of what happened can’t be written.

Sharon and her 15-year-old daughter targeted their victims a young Mother of 30 and her daughter who is around the age of Leanne because of their wealth. Due to the age of the victim’s daughter she will not be named but refereed to from now on as the daughter. Sharon Tiernan and her daughter Leanne Tiernan just 15 at the time carried out the home invasion on a November night 2018.

Leanne age 15

Sharon

Sharon sent Leanne to knock the door saying that she was being followed and could they help. When the Mother opened the door, Leanne pushed her way in holding a knife. Sharon quickly joined her daughter and they soon had their victims under control. Sharon and Leanne now wearing black face masks made their victims walk up the stairs and kneel on the floor of the main bedroom. Where they then tied their hands with cable ties. Leanne walked the victim’s daughter into her bedroom to help herself to her victim’s belongings. Sharon now alone with her victim sexually assaulted the young Mother, the details of which cannot be written as they are to obscene. Sharon when finished with her victim helped herself to the victims Jewry and clothing.

Leanna didn’t sexually assault the daughter but in some ways her crimes were eviller because she was only 15, close to the age of the young girl she had tied up. Leanne kicked and hit her victim over and over before helping herself to the young girl’s belongings. Including the victims school uniform which was always a mystery because Leanne went to a different school. Sharon and her daughter Leanne were in their victim’s home for around three hours. In which time Sharon assaulted the young Mother repeatedly. Leanne continually hit and tormented the young girl in ways that can’t be written. Before leaving them tied up together making off with their victim’s belongings.

The Mother and daughter remained there until a relative found them the next day. The UK police were called and a large-scale investigation began. For weeks, the police had no suspects and the investigation dragged on. The police and local comity shocked by the fact a child had been part of a home invasion, plus the child later to be known as Leanne had showed so much violence towards the daughter. Ruining her life due to the fact the young victim would be permanently scarred because of Leanne’s actions.

A break came when the West Yorkshire police stopped a car due to a traffic violation. The female driver was innocent of any crime, but the officer noticed that she was wearing a ring belonging to Sharon and Leanne’s victim. The police quickly found the female driver was Sharon’s sister. A search warrant was obtained for Sharon Tiernan’s house and the police carried out the warrant in the early hours. Sharon Tiernan and her daughter Leanne were arrested and taken to West Yorkshire police headquarters. Whilst searching their house UK police found their victims clothing in the bedrooms of Sharon and Leanne. They had not sold it on but kept it to wear themselves or it give to realities, who her indicant of any crime. Police also found incriminating data on Leanne’s computer. Most horrific Leanne who we must remember was only 15 at the time. Had taken photos of her victim’s torment. The only parts of what Leanne did to the daughter can be written, Leanne kicked the young girl repeatedly and sat down on her then force her to drink cleaning products from the kitchen. The UK police also found evidence on Sharon Sharon’s computer. It was in the form of photos taken of Sharon and her daughter 15-year-old Leanne.

The photos on Sharon’s computer contained images of herself and her daughter Leanne. They showed them wearing the clothing taken from the home invasion, they were shown laughing as they tried on jewellery and clothing.

Fur coat from victims house, police woman from UK police wearing it.

However, when the photos were made public at the trial some of them were of a disturbing nature, so much they can only partly be described. They showed Sharon wearing a fur coat and boots taken from the victim and Sharon’s daughter Leanne just 15 wearing the school uniform taken from the house. Which was confusing because Leanne went to a different school to the victim’s young daughter. Leanne was sitting on her Mother’s knee in the photo and in another she was sitting on her Mother’s knee wearing a coat over the school uniform. It wasn’t until the photos were used in court that it came out that Leanne was pretending to be the young victim for her Mother Sharon. The other details released in court can’t be written.

More than 1,400 hours of house to house inquiries were conducted, a control head office was set up by West Yorkshire police using thousands of man hours. Over 140 people were questioned in connection to the home invasion. It was the biggest investigation by West Yorkshire police. After Sharon and Leanne were arrested Sharon was held at the correction area for women. Leanne being a minor under UK law was sent to a secure children’s home.

The trial was in the following February at Leeds Crown court both Sharon and Leanne pleaded guilty. Sharon was sentenced to 20 years because of the sexual assault and Leanne was sentenced to 8 years child detention. Lord Justice Poole said he had past the heavy sentences because the lives of the victims would never be the same. The young daughter being marked for life because of Leanne’s sick enjoyment of using violence against her. He also ordered them both to received rehabilitation whilst in custody.

Why is it weird that a 15-y-o would do something like that? That's technically an adult. Besides, how stupid is someone if they let someone "being chased" in without calling the police first? If someone's being chased, how about asking why? C'mon, it's their own fault for being stupid, really...

A.S, I don't know but 15-y-o is aware of what's okay and what's not. And most kids that age at least should know how to be adults and do shit like living alone, paying bills and get their own doctor's appointments or something. It's a shame there are ppl older who can't do any of that.
