So as posted to my social media earlier, William Jordan, aka Guillaume Allen, aka, Liam Allen, aka, Bill Jordan, aka Will Jordan aka William Jones, aka Bill Allen, international spy, Ministry of Defense worker, CIA Agent, Barclay Bank manager, terrorist killer, drone flyer, driver of the shady but in the end – a career liar whose full time job is to con it out of people rather than earn it honestly like the majority of society, was bonded out of jail. I will admit I was really emotional about the call that I received from our VINE network, but it wasn’t entirely unexpected. It was an array of feelings, from shock, anger, dismay at the system and even a feeling of failure to the other victims: known and unknown that I couldn’t keep them safe longer. 17 weeks and 3 days he did. For the 19 months of hell, irritation, inconvenience and annoyance he has caused to me, my family and friends. It’s beyond redonkulous.
What does this mean? Well he was bonded out, so someone paid the $2,000 of the 10% needed plus the bondsman fees and put up collateral for the full $20,000 – usually property. So either someone he continued to converse with while in the clink or his parents put up their house for him. If he fails to show up for court, then the bondsman is responsible for the full amount to the court and can then put a lien up against the property for the amount. It’s a contractual agreement. Whomever does it need to make damn sure that he shows up, doesn’t run or risk losing their home. Given his history, I sure as hell wouldn’t put that kind of faith into someone with such a sordid track record. Our next court date is coming up in 2 weeks. I’ve put my family and neighbors on alert that this man has NO BUSINESS being in this area (let alone this town) and they’re to call the police if they see him. Almost finalized a video surveillance system choice. While I don’t anticipate to ever see his lousy face again, one can never be too careful, especially based on some occurences past victims have had.
I needed to remind myself that this is a marathon, not a sprint. It’s 1,000 steps forward, even if it’s a few tumbles backwards along the way. It’s ok, it’s natural and healthy. As long as one doesn’t dwell in that place for too long or even more detrimental – forever. It’s been a tremendous 6 months of growth. Sure, a lot of things happen all at once, but there are good things sprinkled in between and I wholly believe that this will keep going forward. Fewer steps backwards, more happy times, more progress, more sun. It’s important to build a strong support system whether it’s immediate like family and friends or external like counseling or support groups. Just don’t deal with it alone. A burden is so much easier to bear with many shoulders to share it on. 🙂
Still don’t have a new Dateline air date yet. Spoke to the producer today who is going to call me next week with a status update, but she said it should be soon. It’s my most commonly asked question. Hope you all have a happy and safe Labor Day Weekend (in the US – which is our unofficial end of the summer season) Thank you so much for the continued support, emails, messages, Facebook likes and shares of this blog. Getting the word out is crucial. Until next time!
