From page 3
The citizens of this County
need to be aware that I was not
the only attorney who ever rep-
resented Mr. Stephens. Jenefer
Grant represented Mr. Ste-
phens from approximately April
24, 2002, until January of 2003.
This seems to call into question
the appropriateness of Jenefer
Grant issuing a restraining or-
der against her former client,
Rockland Stephens, in January
of 2008. Jenefer’s involvement,
however, did not cease be-
cause she then issued a stalk-
ing order on behalf of her for-
mer client, Rockland Stephens,
against Shannon Davis’ signifi-
cant other. It should be noted,
also, that Jenefer’s order still
allowed Rockland Stephens
one overnight visit, (he was al-
lowed two overnights previous-
ly) the first and third weekends
of each month, so her order
would not have prevented this
tragedy, and Judge Reed’s
subsequent order did not cause
it. Court records show that nei-
ther the attorneys, Judges, law
enforcement nor Shannon
Davis ever alleged that Mr.
Stephens would harm his son.
If I had known any harm
would come to Shane I would
have alerted authorities. For
Jenefer to suggest that I was
not concerned for the safety of
a child is reprehensible con-
duct. I can appreciate Shannon
Davis’ grief; however, I cannot
excuse the mischaracterization
of my role in this tragic case.
Once again, thanks to all of
you who supported me in my
