Court in Conecuh County on 9 January 2018: PLUS SOME
After all my court trials and tribulations
over the last few years I must admit it has whelt my appetite for keeping up
with certain persons, especially those geared toward trying, to coin a phrase
from one of them, “sink my boat.”
It seems Ms. Rebecca Bennett, former
Southern Pine employee and a person who when delivered a subpoena to come to my
first trial as a witness, made the above statement. For those that can’t remember that far back Ms.
Bennett was an employee at the Evergreen Office of Southern Pine who had
“volunteered” to watch Terry Gray’s children in the event he wasn’t at his job
at the next door Conecuh Animal Shelter.
Yep, Ms. Bennett is the very person that
absolutely, in no uncertain terms, told my attorney that she would “sink my
boat if she had to come to court” when she was subpoenaed the first time. As you may remember, the first trial was
continued because the District Attorney had a “high profile” murder trial they
wanted to get out of the way before I was put on trial.
I’m betting a lot of people couldn’t
really tell that a high profile murder and a vehicular homicide took place at
the same time of my “phony” arrest for “Interference with Custody” charges just
because of the local news coverage. My
face and articles about me seemed to cover the front, middle and end of the
local news and the rest of the world was placed on ignore.
Aw, well, I got a little distracted
reminiscing and lost track for a moment.
Getting back to Ms. Bennett, the same person that was going to sink my
boat also threw me out of the local Southern Pine Office under threat of
calling the police on me. My big
transgression there, I actually wanted to talk to her about what she had seen
on the day I was placed in a position where I was compelled to take Terry
Gray’s children to their mother.
All that hatefulness on Ms. Bennett’s part
was probably derived from her deep concern over who was going to take care of
missing Southern Pine money. Seems the
story put out by her was she had to leave Southern Pine for health reasons,
seems Southern Pine no longer needed her services after monetary shortages in
her area. Proof positive taking others
peoples “stuff” is not conducive to good health.
Anyway, she is charged with “Theft of
Property in the 1 Degree,” a Class B felony punishable by 2-20
years in prison. On Tuesday she was to
be in court to forward a plea but, evidently, she failed to receive
notification. The judge did note that
during the morning session 5 individuals criminally charged were to have appeared
and notice was sent. By virtue of no one
showing up there must have been some miscommunications.
Not to worry, her absence on Tuesday will
not stop the justice system from moving forward. I certainly feel that sometime this year she
will need to worry about keeping her own boat afloat. Karma does have many looks and this time it’s
an in your face look.
Ms. Bennett was not the only person of
interest to me on Tuesday, it seems Terry Thomas Gray, that wonderful “father
of the year” persona filled with lies that got the ball rolling to create all
the problems that plagued me for 4 ½ years was scheduled to appear too.
If you’ll recall when all my troubles
started my face was all over the front of the local newspaper several
times. It’s amazing to me that when Mr.
Gray was arrested in March 2017 on charges of rape in the 2
degree, (Statutory Rape), not one article, not one picture, not one utterance
was made about him in the local news.
It’s as if it is a normal course of business that an almost 40 year old
man should have sexual encounters with a 14 year old girl. In fact, Gray has 2 female children in that
age area. Wonder how he would feel if
some dirtbag were to have abused his girls that way? Course they don’t live with him, he turned
custody of them over to his mom years ago.
No since burdening himself with trying to be “daddy” to too many, just
keep the ones on hand that provide you with food stamps and medical care.
Mr. Gray did show up for court and when
asked, stated he wanted a jury trial. I
really don’t think that I didn’t rape her, she gave it to me, is going to fly
considering her age.
I think it will be advantageous to include
a picture from Gray’s Facebook pages here, keep in mind he has a court
appointed lawyer that we, the everyday, common tax payer is bearing the cost
In case you can’t really see the bills in
the picture they are all $100.00 bills. His
explanation for this landfall is, he hit the lottery. Again, let me remind you all that he has an
appointed lawyer that the tax payer is putting up the bucks for.
In keeping with his improved status in
life, he has moved to the Judge Salter estate on Middle Road. Remember he’s not having to pay for his
lawyer, you are.
I think one more picture would be
appropriate for here:
A person of his means must have a decent
ride. Remember, you’re paying for his
It’s almost hard to grasp that someone the
District Attorney’s and State Attorney General’s Office basically portrayed as
that aforementioned “father of the year” image could sink so low as being
arrested for molesting a 14 year old girl.
Isn’t it hard to believe I would be crucified
for having the wellbeing of 2 minor children in mind and attempting to protect
them in the best manor possible compared to this?
Remember Gray had all the help in the
world from Commissioner John William Andrerws Jr. during my ordeal. Amazingly Andrews did not show up to support
Gray the other day. Of course Andrews
has his own problems with 6 counts of drug distribution against him.
