My name is Mark Joiner. I am helping Leanne Silverman. On April 27, 2012, Leanne was the victim of Sexual battery using deadly force, and battery with a burglary. The Sociopath got two life sentences, with no possibility of parole, ever! During these past two years Leanne has lost everything, including her once peaceful home, due to: PTSD,Epilepsy,broken teeth, horrible nightmares, flashbacks, and grief, among so many other things! She has not lost her faith. I have attached a link to the crime.. Leanne needs medical help desperately now. She has waited two years for disability and been denied again! She can no longer wait. Her Epilepsy is spiriling out of control. She suffocates in her sleep due to the swollen lymph nodes in her neck. Her back teeth are all broken from the beating, and seizures. The Ct scan of her neck indicated several lymphnodes in question. Leanne has a past history of uterine cancer, and this is of great concern due to the past cancer. We will need extensive medical care for her! She even applied for medicaid and was turned down 3 times.

This is the first article written after the attack:
This is after he was found guilty, and just finally sentenced this past December.  HER STATEMENT READ IN COURT:Over the past year and 8 months, I have thought a million times what I would say. how I would
act, or how I would feel
I must say Willie Henderson has changed my life forever, and not one good memory comes to
mind when I think of his name.
When I think of a sick person and a sociopath, I think of Willie Henderson.
When I think of my beautiful home, now destroyed in one million pieces, I think of a monster
that destroyed it.
When I look, back at all of the things I had worked so hard for, I have to confess, it just breaks
my heart.
I think of a night so black and cold when sent this monster to steal my soul.
He knocked on my door, and to my surprise was the beginning of hell on earth, and me your
Somehow, my kindness, and goodness backfired in my face. Somehow in this man’s sick mind it
was more than it was.
This was not just an incident. This was a very sick man with a very sick plan. Only took him
three months to earn my trust.
On the fateful night when I heard the door, I jumped up to help what I thought was ok, was my
fateful mistake, my life will never be the
same. This monster was now in my place, I used to call home. I told him no. I asked him to go. I
fought for my life and he would not let go.
How dare he sit in this place, lie, and steal right in my face.
Physically this monster beat me repeatedly. How I survived, none of us knows.
It was more than bumps and bruises; he mentally destroyed my will. I tried to stay strong for my
I forgave him at first. Then it all caught up. In addition, I almost ended my own life. I was so
angry and so situation ally depressed.
I could not even get out of bed. I wanted to die. All I did was cry. Thinking of all I lost and what
he did to me.
As a massage therapist he has temporarily destroyed my career. I could not work let alone be
with a male figure one on one.
It was two months before I could even find the strength to get out of bed. I did not feel safe. The
horrid nightmares. Seeing this sociopaths face.
I cried repeatedly and prayed to GOD. I have to walk around with scriptures all day long to just
stay strong.
That night he took my dignity, a NO IS A NO.. That did not stop him, he lost all control. What
kind of person does that to a woman?
Not one with class, one with demons so huge and so bad. This sickness that he created in his own
mind took hold.
How do you hurt anyone like that, and then act like its nothing, and not so bad.
I am a grandmother, mother, sister, cousin, aunt, and best friend. What this horrible man did
affected us all. It was not just me he did this too.
HE did this to my MOTHER, SISTER, and DAUGHTER TOO.
I feel he deserves to sit and think about me for the rest of hislife. Sit in a box. Not enjoy the light
of day.I try not to be angry or want to seek revenge. I forgave him for me, so I can live.
He still haunts me in my nightmares; He still makes me lose so much sleep, my once peaceful
perfect life he shattered in a million pieces.
I lost my home, my car, and my everything. How could he do this to me? Now it is his turn to
pay the price for what he did to me
He did this unspeakable crime; it is only fair he do the time. He sealed his fate. He being in
prison for life is a small price for what he did to me.
How can a person rape, and beat a woman. How do can you live with this unspeakable act? How
can someone act with no remorse? I have cried so many nights. My anxiety through the roof.
It is still hard at 44 years old not to be scared of the dark. My once normal life is upside down. I
still cannot make sense of all of this. This is still so surreal for
me. Will I ever have a normal life again. I have PTSD, nightmares, flashbacks, and I cannot
sleep. My mouth is full of broken teeth, and missing fillings. The lymph nodes in my neck need
to be taken out. I suffocate in my sleep. I have suffered enough. Life in prison is a small price to
pay for what this man did to me. My final wish in all of this is that this never happens to anyone
I want to make sure I am the last woman he will ever hurt in this life. This sickness does not just
go away. This trial was NOT easy. Thank you for doing what is only fair. written by the victim, Leanne Silverman
PLEASE help her get the medical attention she needs. Please help her in anyway possible. Thank your for your support!! Any contribution will help. Mark
