Note from Lynn:  This response from LaVon Stennis Williams is from an article I wrote some time ago (2008 to be exact). GO HERE to view the original article.

———————————————-

Hello All, I am LaVon Stennis William and for the last five years I have been afraid to google my name for fear of this article.

Everyone including potential employers told me about it. In fact it seems that each time I tried to move forward, this article by Hicktown Press would surface. The article has been used by some to close doors and set up further barriers to my re-entry efforts.

So after yesterday 11/19/13, and yet another run in with this article, I decided to face my fears, and google me, and yep there was this article facing me right in the face– so I read it and now I get a chance to respond.

Yes I was disbarred and sentenced to federal prison. I settled the case in full with the client, accepted my responsibility, served my prison sentence and while in prison was able to help so many women. Many of these women were the actual faces of the War on Drugs that most of us only heard about on t.v. or read about in the news paper.

Many of these women were mothers who would not be able to
see their children for many years because they were poor and their families
could not afford to travel . I helped these women to earn their GED’s and
develop plans for how they would overcome their situation.

The program that I developed became so popular that it was copied by the prison to be used at the men’s facility across the street. Upon my release in 2010, I turned the program into ReConnect2 Success, a re-entry program and have now helped over 500 men and women to overcome employment and other barriers in life. I have expanded the services to now serve youth and the sad part is that I often serve both the parent and the child.

Now as to the other stuff in this article, yes I was sued by Billy Roy Tyler,
and so was anyone else with a pulse in Omaha. In fact he has filed so many frivolous suits that he must now get permission from the Courts to file.

The case in question was thrown out along with the other 1,000 plus suits he has filed. I never took his money. It was a ploy on his part to get back a home he had sold. And yes I was a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority at the time of my criminal indictment a matter that the President Barbara McKinzie asked that I keep between she and I until she was ready to tell the other members. I had worked on several projects at the request of Barbara and then I learned that she was intending to take credit for the work that I had done as a basis to get the Directorate or Board of Directors to pay her $250,000. I knew that our governing documents did not allow such payments. She tried to get me to come up with a way
for her to get the money and I refused.

As a member of the Foundation Board, I learned of a $100,000 transfer of funds back from AKA to EAF that had been ordered by Barbara, but the money had never showed back up on the books of EAF so I confronted her and she leaked the story of my indictment to other members under the guise that she did not know. In my efforts to defend myself to the members that Barbara did know and the reason why she was now disclosing my indictment, I shared the information I knew about her antics
to numerous members. I was getting calls daily after I was suspended.

Any or many of the members could have created the M.R. person mentioned in this article. I WAS NEVER PAID BY AKA TO INVESTIGATE THIS MATTER. Well this all hit at the same time I was fighting for the freedom which felt like the fight for my life. Since I was no longer practicing law, I did not have the money to fight this so Barbara and AKA won. But that was not the end of the story. Barbara is now being sued by AKA for taking over a million dollars. You can google her name and the story of the suit comes up.

Now as to this article, its not as bad as many made me to fear, and I cant
understand why some people put so much stock in it. I have never met ” Lynn Green” and have always suspected that Barbara got her medial friend M , to write this article. M and I never had a good relationship in AKA, but I have to give her credit, she knew her way around social media and public relations. She was very good at this. In any event, Lynn Green if you are real, I hope that you will not stop with the Strange Case of LaVon Stennis Williams, your readers, followers deserve to hear how the story ended and I am willing to tell it to you I may be reached at ( 402) 740——-[phone number removed by Lynn Green for safety of Ms. Williams]  or lavonsw@gmail.com

I’m sometimes wrong when I think I’ve smelled a rat. And I HOPE my rat smelling skills have failed me this time.

As you have heard, a white woman is claiming that some black teen boys shot her IN THE LEG while shooting her baby IN THE HEAD.

Why would they leave the threat alive while brutally killing an innocent who cannot chase them, call the cops on them, etc.?

Again, I hope my rat smelling skills are off this time:

A woman says she was taking her 13-month-old son for a walk in this Georgia town when they were approached by two boys who demanded money, then fatally shot her boy and wounded her.
“He said, ‘I’m gonna kill you if you don’t give me your money,’ and I said, ‘I swear, I don’t have any,’” Sherry West told CNN affiliate WAWS. “I put my arms over my baby and he shoves me and he shot my baby right in the head.”

Bishop I.V. Hilliard of New Light Church in Houston deserves credit for not taking part in a farce. Hilliard was chosen to help select a new pastor for Zachery Tims’ church.

Check this out:

“I was asked to be a part of a four bishop council, a committee of four bishops that would give wisdom and council and guidance to the board during their selection process,” Hilliard said.

In a special announcement, Hilliard spoke openly about his decision.
“Now after being involved for some time in the process, I have decided to resign my position in this bishop’s council. Now my commitment to integrity will not allow me to support something that I believe is deceptive and that compromises previously agreed upon procedures and protocol.” source

In other words, the “council” was formed as a smokescreen. Truth of the matter is, the powers that be— probably ruled by the devil himself, already knew who the new pastor would be prior to putting together this bishop council. Hilliard decided not to join in on the smoke and mirrors dog-and-pony show and good for him!

I would like to know where God is in all this. Was He sought? Obviously not. So another wolf, another snake, is going to slither up into the pulpit in Zachery Tims’ place and continue the conniving, slick method of “preaching” and “teaching” that he was famous for—all while enjoying the “powdery substance” that ultimately took him out of here.
Heaven help us!

UPDATE as of 12/3/11 – Vanessa Long has again changed her mind and she is continuing with the divorce proceedings. Keep this woman in prayer. As a human being, my heart goes out to her. LINK

I was out and about today when I suddenly started receiving emails from Hicktowners. First group of emails said that Vanessa Long had filed for divorce. Second group said that she had withdrawn her petition.

Where is Diva when you need her? In the past she would help me out with these articles and if I could not get to the computer, she would post the article for me. But she enrolled in grad school and got out of the groove, so …….. ya’ll only have me to wait on. Sorry I am late getting to this! Where are you, Diva???

…her petition for divorce filed late Thursday afternoon in DeKalb County civil court, Vanessa Long said her 21-year marriage to New Birth Missionary Baptist pastor Bishop Eddie Long was “irretrievably broken,” adding there was “no hope of reconciliation.”
Vanessa and Eddie Long, the beleaguered pastor of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, have been married for more than two decades.

Less than 24 hours later, Long announced, “upon prayerful reflection,” she was withdrawing the divorce petition.

“I love my husband,” she said in a statement released Friday afternoon. “I believe in him and admire his strength and courage.”
Vanessa Long, a New Birth elder, said her decision to seek a divorce was driven by “years of attacks in the media that frustrated and overwhelmed me.”
It’s unclear whether the couple, who have two adult children, will once again share living quarters. In Thursday’s filing Vanessa Long, 53, acknowledged the couple had been in a “state of separation.”

Hicktowner, MoKelly reported on this separation a looooong time ago. However, they denied that there was a separation. But Mo had some inside information so I knew he had posted accurate information.

Why the farce?

We will never know what all is going on in that household or what that woman is going through but I will say this.

She would do well to step lightly and carefully in dealing with the “great bishop”.

I’ll tell you why. Several years ago he was on one of his high and mighty trips and was giving a so-called testimony.

In his arrogant way, he boasted about how when his first wife left him, he had planned on killing her and himself. Now he gave that testimony himself. Those were his words, okay?

So I would strongly urge Vanessa to step with caution.

I feel for her. She does not deserve this mess. Imagine what she knows that you and I don’t know. Okay?

This is actually a case where I’d say keep the woman in prayer.

THANKS to all my Hicktowners who kept me up to date on this today.

There is a dangerous trend at foot. Don’t sleep on this, Hicktowners!

While working at his next job at a consumer electronics company, the “eureka moment” suddenly hit: What if products could walk and talk on their own? You could design a completely different kind of warehouse. And you could staff it with robots.

This robot does factory and warehouse work:

PRESS HERE

This robot will get you a beer and cook you a meal:

PRESS HERE

This robot guards prisons:

PRESS HERE

This robot will fight your battles for you. PRESS HERE

I could go on and on. This is NOT good news, everyone. How long before robots are teaching classes, performing operations and defending people in court?

How many jobs, exactly will these robots take from citizens? Some of you are thinking that this won’t go far because it’s cost prohibitive. Actually computers were initially cost prohibitive, weren’t they? And now almost everyone has one.

One more thing.  I mentioned that there is a robot that will fight real battles in real wars.  That’s a good thing, right?  It will save lives.  Well, therein lies the rub.  Throw in some positive things that the robot can do and that will justify all the negatives…such as eliminating thousands and eventually millions of jobs that humans could be doing.  Don’t believe the hype.  Robots pose a clear and present danger to jobs.

I believe that the Tims family has forgotten a little something called “Freedom of Information”. Or would this not be covered under the Freedom of Information Act?

This case is now in court and it will be quite interesting to see the outcome!

In any event, Zachery’s mother has confirmed via her court battle her son’s cause of death. Darkness WILL be exposed to the light:

The New York attorney for Zachery Tims’ mother said Tuesday the family is challenging the legal right of the New York City Medical Examiner’s Office to release the cause of death of the Apopka preacher.

Ricardo Oquendo, who represents Madeline Tims in the lawsuit filed Friday, said autopsy and toxicology reports are not public record in New York City and their findings should not be either.

“We are challenging what has never been challenged before, which is the medical examiner’s practice of disclosing manner and cause of death,” Oquendo said. “The cause of death of any person who may be subject to an autopsy or toxicology should not be made public.”
