Backstory

Jaimie and Mady dated for 2 years, her senior year of high school and her first year of design school. He hated the fact that she took the job at the Coyote Ugly Saloon in order to pay for school. They fought about it constantly and he even showed up at the bar a few times, trying to get her fired. The bouncer at the bar escorted him from the premises and eventually banned him from coming back. Jaimie threatened Mady multiple times if she didn’t quit her job, but she refused and the last argument resulted in him trying to strangle her because he’d been drinking. She called the police on him and pressed charges and he was sentenced to serve 18 months. He’s in jail at the South Central Correctional facility in Clifton, but gets moved to a jail in Texas because he got in trouble. After serving his 18 months he’s released and is obsessed with going after Mady.

When Gregg was younger he too got in trouble and spent time in jail. When he was released from jail he found out that his father had passed away and left him his entire estate. He knew he wanted to use the money to help people who were in a similar situation as he was. Gregg had been raised in a conservative Christian home, but was led astray when he got involved in drugs at the age of 17. His mother passed away when he was 20 and his father didn’t know how to control Gregg after that. His mother’s death sent him over the edge and he would spend weeks at a time away from his father’s home doing drugs and ending up in the hospital a few times, but his father never knew about it.

Gregg didn’t have any siblings, but he did have a cousin that he would keep in touch with, but he never accepted his offers to help Gregg get clean. One night when he was desperate for another high, but had no money he attacked a guy he saw walking through the park alone after dark. The guy ended up in the hospital, but after he was released about 2 weeks later he was able to identify Gregg so he was arrested, charged and convicted. He spent 4 years in jail and was treated for his drug addiction as well as depression and anxiety.

Backstory

It had been almost 3 years since he’d touched a computer. It was part of his recovery and in reality, he didn’t miss it. But, starting this new job as an insurance adjuster on Monday meant he’d have to use one again. The company would provide full training since they had software developed specifically for their use, so he wasn’t worried about that. But he was told he’d have his own office, which meant he’d have privacy. If there wasn’t someone around to hold him accountable there was a chance he’d slip right back into his old habit and that was dangerous.

He could still think back to the days when he would sit up half the night watching porn movie after porn movie on his computer, even though his fiancé was mere feet away from him. She had no idea he had this addiction, but she could tell something wasn’t right with him after living together for about 6 months. They hadn’t had sex in at least a month and he was always on edge and angry about something. One night around 4am she woke up and found him asleep at the computer. When she saw what was on the screen she screamed and he jumped awake. He had headphones on so she wouldn’t be able to hear it, but it was obvious that he’d fallen asleep while watching a hardcore porn movie. She immediately told him their relationship was over, packed a bag and left to stay with a friend. At that point he knew that things were getting out of control, but he couldn’t help himself. Eventually however, it got to the point that just watching wasn’t enough. As he walked down the street most days on his way to and from work he would see the women he passed and imagine what it would be like to pin then against the side of a building in a deserted alley and rape them. The thought got stronger and stronger until late one night after watching a movie that again did nothing for him, he put on his sweats, grabbed his keys and left his apartment. There weren’t many people around, so he slowly walked down the sidewalk until he heard a group of women coming out of the restaurant on the corner and as they parted ways, one of them was walking toward him. Her car must’ve been parked nearby. At first he just smiled at her and she smiled back. But as he turned to watch her walk a bit farther he found himself turning and walking towards her.

Two hours later he was back in his apartment sweaty and exhausted after raping her and leaving her in the alley two blocks from his apartment building. He showered, went to bed and got up after only sleeping 3 hours and went to work as if nothing had happened. The next night he was woken up by nightmares of what he had done, but he never told anyone about it. A few days later while he was getting ready to go into a meeting at work, 2 officers walked into his office and asked for a word with him. They told him that they had a warrant for his arrest for raping Stephanie Tiffney. He denied having anything to do with her, but they took him into custody for questioning. At the police station he was put in a line up with a handful of other men. He knew that she was on the other side of the 2 way mirror he was staring at. After a few minutes he heard over a loud speaker that everyone was excused. They were escorted into a room, but he was quickly taken into another room and questioned by the officers that had taken him into custody. He was quickly charged with rape and found guilty.

Rather than just being thrown into a cell and left to rot, the judge ordered that he attend counseling and get help for addiction. Three years later he’s a free man and starting his life over again. While he was in jail and going through counseling he met an older man that was there for the same thing and he introduced Derrik to God.
