Yes, folks, the day I have been dreading since February of last year has finally come to fruition. William Allen Jordan is back out on the streets to con yet another vulnerable victim, likely a single mother. I am absolutely INCENSED with the New Jersey justice system. How in the hell do violators have more rights than the victims? It’s like the justice system serves to just victimize people repeatedly.
Lets go back a few months. So I get a letter from the NJ parole board saying he filed for parole, yet again. I go guns blazing with my multitudes of proof as to why this man should NOT be let out on the streets of ANYWHERE and then weeks, months go by without a word. I call to find out the status only to find he has withdrawn his petition either on the merit that it would only garner him weeks if not a month or two of early release of he knew that I could go at him so hard he had no way of winning. I would like to hope it was B. So I get told back in July or August that he will likely be released between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Oh joy. /sarcasm
My and the other victims have been diligent in checking the NJ DOC website and saw his release date get moved closer and closer and closer. For real??? I call all over the place when I find out that the date was moved to October 24th. In doing the math of time served while the trial was going on and then time served since February of 2015, in October he would have only served 2 years of a 3 year sentence. Yet the Burlington County Prosecutor on my case said he should max out, so what the hell happened?? Evidently you can earn credit for good behavior and since he is not a violent offender and prisons being as overcrowded as they are (blah, blah, blah), he was eligible for early release. Good behavior, really? He harassed a girl for months from jail to where she had to file a report with the prison and even then the harassment kept up after the face. She had to file a restraining order against him to get it to stop. That is good behavior, victimizing victims from behind bars? Wake up New Jersey!?!? This is a man who should be locked up and the key melted into a titanium brick, surrounded by concrete and thrown in the biggest, deepest ocean trench or launched into outer space, never to be seen again.
Around the same time that I am getting this info, I get contacted by a UK production company to do a documentary on internet schemes of which they came across my story. Of course I said yes. I never turn down an interview and a chance to just educate people on how predators like Jordan work. Even to this day I receive regular communication from victims who come across my blog, my facebook site, one of my previous interviews, etc and come looking for help for themselves in getting out of a toxic relationship, on how to prosecute a conning ex (or in some cases, soon to be ex) or help on how to heal from such a personally crushing blow. I reply to EVERY email or message I get, even the hate mail. If someone will take the time to search me, then I feel I owe them a reply. I will continue to advocate for victim’s rights until my dying day. I get my days where I just feel lower than low, but I have a great support system around me that propels me forward and I want to be a good role model for my children. My son almost doesn’t even recall a world that doesn’t involve the media as he was 4 when all of this went down.
Now let me tell you about a horrific incident I had yesterday while filming for this new documentary (airing details will follow as I get the info). So I filmed on Sunday, yesterday and will be filming again tomorrow. Yesterday was a day of location shoots so we were pretty much on the road all day. They wanted to see the places we went. Around 10am we were at the site of the arrest that the Daily Mail had caught photos of. We did some interview work and then we were getting some B roll footage when I spot someone walking about 3 blocks away. I tell the camera guy I am with that I think that is Will Jordan coming towards us. He looks and says no, that guy is way too young. Another block goes by and I tell him again, I truly think that is him. By now I am sure the camera guy though I was paranoid, perhaps because of where we were. Now the figure is across the street – total opposite sides of the street of where the arrest actually happened and the man looks a bit startled and confused. By then I know without a doubt from across 4 lanes of traffic that it’s him! I had spent over a year knowing that walk, the mannerisms and style of dress. When Jordan spots us, he goes up the road about 100 feet and then I guess says to hell with it and crosses the street in very close proximity to us. The camera man tells me to get in the car and I feel my heart just racing away. He starts to pack up the camera because he doesn’t want to engage in anything that may provoke this completely disturbed, psychotic human being (if he can even be counted in our species). We drive away and I am just a bundle of nerves. After the fact we were able to have a good laugh about how wildly ironic that way and how we didn’t catch any of that on film. My body betrayed me with the fight or flight response and we went on about our day like nothing had happened, but I hope that Jordan realizes that just because he is out of jail and time has gone by that I am going to just stop my campaign to expose sociopaths/psychopaths like him. He may have a new victims, he may be grooming for a new victim, so single ladies have to be diligent!
I received a call from a friend who saw him walking down the same road this morning while she was late for work and she was just agape with horror as she didn’t realize that I already knew he was out of jail. I appreciate my friends beyond words. The first person I reached out to was Mary, Jordan’s ex-wife. Not my family or anyone else, Mary. Why? Because I was put into a place of 2 years ago when I would secretly film all day pretending like everything was honkey dory and then talking to her and the other victims all night about what had been discussed during the day and how I can get the video files to them so that they could see with their own eyes what kind of rubbish he had said that day. I see the lies for what they are…..NOW. But in the moment, I was mentally brainwashed to believe his crap and that’s what it was – crap. Lies cloaked in partial truths so that there were less lies overall to have to remember. I will say he looks like hell. Gaunt, thin, looking more his 51 years than before he went into prison. I hope it was hell for him. Miserable and void of anything worthwhile. After all it’s a punishment, not a 5 star resort.
There is a renewed sense of vigilance that I have. I have rewritten all of the political contacts that I had in moving forward with my law, with getting Jordan listed as a Megan’s Law offender and anything else that I can do to help victims in any way. If the law doesn’t want to work for victims, you advocate and persistently keep pushing to change the laws so that it does. I am not done, not by a long shot.
