SRSO Scott Haines: The Exploitation of Dorothy Rogers

Featured

Previously I posted on Scott Haines an SRSO officer who wormed his way into a family, isolated a 90 year old woman with Alzheimer’s, Dorothy Rogers, and convinced her that her family was out “to put her away”. By detaching her from her family, via false accusations, civil complaint, and arrest warrant, Scott convinced her that only he was looking out for her welfare, being a law enforcement officer sold it. Aren’t cops supposed to be the “good guys”?

He got her to change an Irrevocable Trust by arresting the trustee, the person who is entrusted to protect the trust, Matthew Groelinger, for stealing from her estate, exploitation of an elderly person.  Those charges were later dismissed, nolle proseqi, but only after Scott was named the new trustee of Rogers Trust and Estate, valued into the millions of dollars in real estate and assets. New documents have been released, authenticating Haines’s abuse of power and profiteering off of this woman.

This is the link to land sales to Haines for the sales of tracts of land owned by Rogers, deeded to Haines for $20 each (estimated value of each tract is $20K+).

These are the links to evictions from Rogers’s trailer park, executed by Rogers. The notes in Rogers own handwriting show her confusion and that she, not only believes Scott is her grandson, but that he is forcing her to evict these people and she doesn’t know why.

Legacy

I have spent the day reflecting on different things.  As I sat down to write about the case, I thought that going over the lasting indentation in time; a moment  can carry a generational reverberation. One instant can propel a life into constellation of events. We take for granted those moments and we abuse them regularly. Byrd Billings used his moments in time to weave a web of lies, as well as brazenly live a  life more corrupt than a movie plot could begin to describe. He was selling drugs. He was laundering money. He was lining his pocket with government money for his “disadvantaged” kids.  The money is in the number of kids.

When you have the ability to spend the least amount of effort and expense, the money is in the numbers. If you have a full time person, on site, that is CPR certified and is a healthcare professional, the space, the vehicles to transport the kids, and other fringe people helping out in a voluntary or part-time basis, the number of kids, who are not completely incapable of doing for themselves (ie dressing, eating etc), becomes a business. The state doesn’t mind because they have problems providing for the number of kids that need a home. Byrd & Melanie Billings exploited that. This all stems out of Melanie having a special needs daughter who died not too long before her mother.

The legacy here is not altruistic. The proof is in the lawsuits that Byrd filed trying to copyright the names of the kids. He tried to impose fines for letters acknowledging services for the kids.

“Additional documents released Monday from the Florida Department of Children and Families show a bizarre attempt by Byrd Billings to copyright the children’s names and request money from the department for their use. A department attorney, Katie George, told the Pensacola News-Journal that every time the agency sent Billings a letter referencing the children by name, he would reply with an invoice demanding millions in copyright infringement. In one document released by the department, he demands $10 million in silver or federal reserve notes of equal value.

In a sharply worded letter of December 2005, another department attorney, Richard Cserep, wrote to Billings, “you reference a wide variety of law in connection with this claim” for damages. “This includes copyright violations, trademark violations, contract violations, admiralty and maritime law, libel and the Truth in Lending Act. At no time in any of your correspondence have you made a plain demand for damages under a clear and cognizable theory of liability.”…A handwritten note on the letter says that no further correspondence was received from Billings after that letter.”http://www.cnn.com/2009/CRIME/07/20/florida.slain.couple/index.html?eref=rss_crime

This is the legacy of Byrd Billings.
