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 firstname.lastname@example.org
