October 16, 2013 Athens, Ga. 1:30PM EST - The Courthouse Steps - 325 East Washington Street, Athens, Georgia

Rally For Justice: Octboer 16, 2013 @ 1:30pm


Contact: Ms. Susie Addison Phone: 706- 543-4291


Athens, Georgia ---- 9/22/2013----On Wednesday October 16, 2013 at 1:30pm a rally will be held in front of the courthouse at : 325 East Washington Street Athens, GA 30601. This rally will be held in support of justice for a two year old victim whom the Athens Clarke County Police has chosen to ignore for years.

 No arrests have been made while; an egregious crime has been committed against this child. We, The Committee For Justice, fear that a rush to make an arrest is imminent which could result in a wrongful conviction. We would like to insure that this criminal case is soundly investigated without passing the buck in a rush to close the case.

 Five years ago, after the child was raped by one man and and tortured by another, an incident report was taken by the police and the child identified the perpetrators of the crime. Initially, the police and the North Georgia Cottage were involved however; the case quickly grew cold over a span of four years and was reopened when grassroots activists formed a global movement for justice.

 While confirmation of rape has come from certified medical doctors; the police department states that their doctors have confirmed the injuries to be synonymous with falling off of a wooden rocking horse. We, The Committee For Justice, find this analysis to be utmost despicable.

 The Committee For Justice is composed of global activists and grassroots organizers who are outraged by the lack of concern in this case. We seek justice for all involved and we also realize that Justice Is Not A Wrongful Conviction.

Justice Is Not A Wrongful Conviction - Raped At The Age Of Two In Athens, Georgia

Justice Is Not A Wrongful Conviction
Raped at The Age of Two In Athens, Georgia 
 By Nancy Lockhart, M.J. 

 Mail On Line Award- Winning Video Director Of Fugees, informs us that Aswad Syinde was sentenced to ninty years in prison on Friday July 26th 2013, for the sexual assault of a daughter. He previously received a forty year sentence for raping another daughter. Aswad Syinde, has been convicted of raping his daughters and fathering children with some of them. His goal for 30 years was to create a pure bloodline. His wife informs readers that she was too afraid of him to do anything about the incest/rapes.

The numbers of abused children floating underneath the radar of Children's Services and the Police are unfathomable. There are common threads in the New Jersey case and the case of #TheLittleGirl, in Athens, Georgia. 
The biological mothers in both cases protected their men – not the child(ren). Evidence shows that the biological mother and grandmother of #TheLittleGirl knew that she was abused. The mother and grandmother have not been charged, arrested or prosecuted, neither have the men. 

Some eight hundred plus miles southwest of New Jersey is a southern college town called Athens, Georgia. It is home to several academic institutions including The University of Georgia and it's law school. An African American child (#TheLittleGirl), was raped at the age of two for an extensive period of time in Athens, Georgia. The exact time frame? We're uncertain. We are certain however; that District Attorney Ken Mauldin sat on the executive board of a non profit known as The North Georgia Cottage. A 501(3)C with a mission statement that reads, "The Cottage provides intervention, advocacy, referrals, and support for survivors and families impacted by child abuse and sexual assault. The Cottage also raises awareness and provides prevention education about these issues." North Georgia Cottage Website 

#TheLittleGirl was provided services at this non profit agency and they too, dropped the ball. The Department of Children and Family Services sent the child to The Cottage to be examined and interviewed after the rape. Within this interview the child named one of the rapists. The victim child named and graphically described what was done to her. On August 17, 2012 I briefly spoke with The North Georgia Cottage Executive Director who requested a signed "Release of Information" form by the adopted mother, to discuss the case with me. This was expected, however; the mother completed the form and Executive Director Salley Sheppard never responded to my phone calls, e-mails or facsimiles afterwards.

In experiences of fighting for justice, I've noticed that most individuals don't return calls or, e-mails when there is something being swept under the rug. While I prefer to sweep things into a dustpan or, vacuum them up – others quickly sweep under the rug and many times that rug is large enough to conceal lot's of other sweepings. 

 In the year 2012 we were denied an incident report. The following report was obtained in 2013. Incident Report Number CRN 01-08-12-0812 Dated from 10-01-08 to Date 10-15-08 Aggravated Child Molestation Code Section 16-6-4. The incident report proves that #TheLittleGirl was raped five years ago – at least during the age of two. Further research and investigations may prove earlier dates of aggravated molestation. 

During such time, Sexual Assault Center of Northeast Georgia, Inc.'s 2009, federal tax return shows that Ken Mauldin was a board member. The Sexual Assault Center of Northeast Georgia changed it's name to The Cottage, Sexual Assault Center and Children's Advocacy Center in October of 2008, according to their website ( ). The Cottage Sexual Assault Center's federal tax returns from 2010, lists Ken Mauldin as a Director; while; the Re-Elect Ken Mauldin website shows him seeking re-election for District Attorney Tuesday November 2, 2004. 

Mauldin is currently the District Attorney and according to the Athens Clarke County website, " The Office of the District Attorney serves primarily as the prosecuting attorney in the Superior Court of Athens-Clarke and Oconee counties. In Athens-Clarke County Georgia, the district attorney is responsible for the prosecution of all criminal cases involving at least one felony charge. Additionally, there is a responsibility to pursue, when appropriate, certain civil actions such as RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act), drug, gambling, and bond forfeitures."

Where Exactly Does Corruption Lie? Who Exactly Dropped The Ball and Why?

Since 2008, there have been approximately five officers shifting responsibilities within a dormant investigation. Approximately one year ago, a retired GBI officer was assigned. This past spring (2013), another officer has been assigned to the case. The retired GBI officer stayed in communication with me as well as, the adopted mother until the case was shifted to the fifth detective. That detective refuses to communicate. #TheLittleGirl gave vivid explanations about her abusers. The Department of Children and Family Services found enough abuse to remove her from the home of her biological mother and grandmother. The police did not make arrest(s). 

Report Of Aggravated Sexual Abuse By Physician

  • Biological Mother Took Child To Physician
  • Physician Reported Abuse.
  • Physician Remains Ignored
  • Police Ignored Adopted Mother For Years
  • Media Continues To Ignore Adopted Mother
  • Counselors State That, Child Needs Prosecution For Recovery
  • Child Wants To Know Why When Children do bad they go to time out - Adults do bad and nothing happens.

 Poor Children Don't Own 

Wooden Rocking Horses – Sir!

 After many campaigns to bring justice for #TheLittleGirl, detectives invited the adoptive mother and her guests to a meeting on May 21, 2013. Detectives started by saying that their independent doctors concluded that injuries to #TheLittle Girl were possibly obtained from falling off of a wooden rocking horse. Poor children do not own wooden rocking horses - Sir!

Medical determinations from the child's physician and the child's statements remain ignored.  Athens-Clarke County Refused Independent Polygraph one man in question has asked for a polygraph test. This man is #TheLittleGirl's biological father. She stated information which actually sounds coached by her biological mother in reference to her father. She gives graphic details and names the individuals who raped and tortured her. I'm actually wondering if the biological mother had not coached her to protect mother and grandmother's boyfriends. Her story hasn't changed and she could not have made this very graphically, descriptive information up. The biological father adamantly states that he did not rape his child. ( He would like a private polygraph test). He was recently convicted of another crime and there appears to be a rush to charge him with the rape of #TheLittleGirl, his daughter.

As a result of the father's request for a polygraph, I located an expert who agreed to an independent test. The Little Girl did not give vivid details of her father however; she did give graphic details of rape by an additional man and torture by yet another. She very descriptively explains rape and torture as well as, the men who did it to her. Her story regarding the rape and torture has not changed. Athens- Clarke County Police Department , under the direction of Chief of Police Joseph H. Lumpkin Sr, has refused to cooperate with an independent test and the cooperation of the police department is needed.

In researching years of service, I would imagine that Chief Lumpkin is nearing retirement. I feel very sadly for him as I wouldn't want to leave behind, a legacy of doing absolutely nothing about the rape of a two year old baby within a five year investigation. Four of those years being dormant under his leadership. Why Did Athens-Clarke County Refuse An Independent Polygraph? Please visit #TheLittleGirl's blog (

Donate To The Little Girl's Legal Fund

An incident report is evidence of  #TheLittleGirl being raped at the age of TWO, and not three as previously reported. A year ago, the incident report was requested and that request was denied.  We now know that The Athens, Clarke County Police Department dropped the ball and 5 years later there begins an effort to rush a conviction.  We are demanding a thorough investigation void of innocent persons being convicted. 

Upon locating a pro bono polygraph expert, Athens Clarke County Police Department refused to cooperate. 

The Committee has determined that The Little Girl is in need of a legal team.

Response From Georgia Attorney General's Office

We very much appreciate having a response from The State of Georgia's Attorney General's office.
The Georgia AG office states that this case is out of it's jurisdiction and has forwarded our concerns to the Athens-Clarke County district attorney's office. The DA's name is Ken Mauldin. Please view the video on this blog with DA Mauldin.

Call & Fax District Attorney Ken Mauldin and inquire as to why he has not prosecuted this case.

Phone: 706-613-3240
Fax: 706-613-3247
Monday - Friday
8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

There has not been a response from the Athens - Clarke County Police department from our requests to have a Pro Bono Polygraph Expert conduct polygraphs on the men who committed this crime. Additionally, Major Seizemore has stated that the police force has their own polygraph experts. Our requests for an independent polygraph have gone ignored while, one party to this crime has stated that he would conduct a polygraph. Why are the Athens Georgia Police refusing to cooperate in a polygraph exam? Call, e-mail and ask them why.

Update: Meeting With Major Mark Sizemore and Assistant Chief Fred Stephens May 21, 2013

The Little Girl's (adopted)mother and supporters met with Chief Fred Stephens and Major Mark Sizemore of the Athens Clarke County Police Department on May 21, 2013.

This meeting was basically a status update of their investigation. Sizemore and Stephens basically stated that independent doctors feel that injuries to the little girl are consistent of straddle injuries such as those obtained while riding a wooden rocking horse. One of the supporters asked whether or not police had investigated the home where this rape occurred to look for the wooden horse. 

(How could a 3 year old child make such graphic descriptions of rape while naming the men who did this to her? A rocking horse? Really? )

It is very obvious that The Athens-Clarke County Police are making yet another attempt to pass the buck.

Apparently, the Athens Clarke County Police are going to overlook the findings of the initial doctor, who incidentally happens to be Black.

No written report was presented to the mother or supporters from the two independent doctors. 

Police also stated that they could not locate the men in question. The Little Girl's mother had previously told them where to find them - one address included jail.

Police Said DA's Office had case, DA Says No Case

The Athens Clarke County Police Department stated that the case of "The Little Girl" was being handled by the DA's office.  Canadian Supporters called and spoke with District Attorney Ken Mauldin. That conversation is provided by Black Talk Media Project.

Since the production of this video, we have gained global support. Thank you for supporting Justice for The Little Girl however; No arrests have been made!

The Little Girl

Four years ago a 3 year old toddler was raped and tortured in Athens, Georgia.  She is referred to as "The Little Girl" in an effort to conceal her identity. 

Two men raped her (possibly over a period of time), an additional man tortured her. These men have not been charged or arrested by The Athens, Georgia Police Department. It is rumored that another child has been raped by one or more of the same perpetrators. 

The Little Girl gave graphic details about what happened. She was interviewed by The Cottage, Sexual Assault Center & Children's Advocacy Center, Inc. a 5013c whose mission statement says "The Cottage provides intervention, advocacy, referrals and support for survivors and families impacted by child abuse and sexual assault..." (North Georgia Cottage)

"The Little Girl" identified the perpetrators.

Why didn't The Cottage find a need to ensure that the rapists of "The Little Girl" were prosecuted?  

Even with a signed "Waiver" the director has refused to answer and return phone calls. 

The Little Girl was removed from the home and adopted by a wholesome lady who cares for her and takes much needed time with her; however, The Little Girl would like to know "Why, when children do wrong they go to time out and when adults do wrong nothing happens"?
