Full Description

This is the life story of a man who grew up in a small Southern town in a Christian family with all odds against him. He had visions and dreams of great businesses. He followed those dreams and rose to become the chairman of several multi-billion dollar companies, all three in New York, two of which were Fortune 500 companies, and one of which was in the S&P 500. Everything he built and gained in his twenty-five years of building businesses was taken away from him and his family through vicious attacks from dishonest prosecutors, judges, and plaintiff attorneys. It should not have happened in America.
