Laurie Lima Family Status

June 4, 2011

I have been fighting negative publicity since 2007.

I had been contemplating changing my last name but felt resistant to that idea simply because I did nothing wrong nor was the trial against me accurately tried or concluded. As I was a pro se Attorney there are no avenues to overturn a Judges decision.

I have now decided to simply update the status of my family members mentioned in the press throughout Connecticut on the Internet.

It is unfortunate that the only press that remains open for review on the Internet is negative. Throughout my 29 year Career, as a Local Business Owner, and my children’s lives press and media attention was common as we were active in the Community and in our day to day lives. We were positive role models to others, especially Women. We remain steadfast in our efforts to return to our status as Private Contributors to our Society.

My daughters and I volunteered regularly in the avenues of our choice. Although our choices might not been popular within the town we lived, they were our choices. They were and remain private. Many people choose to Volunteer and make it a public matter, simply put, that was never our choice. The fact that we, as a family, were dragged into a very Public situation was unfortunate for all involved. It is also unfortunate that the negative press on the Internet is inaccurate.

My eldest daughter, Hope Lima, is approaching her final year at West Virginia Wesleyan College. She regained her status as a Nationally ranked Swimmer and has maintained a 4.0 gpa throughout her Undergraduate Studies. Hope has just returned from a research trip in Peru. She is happy, working and planning the next leg of her Academic Career. Hope is continuing her Graduate Studies in the field of Medicine although has not made any specific decisions concerning her future. Hope’s Undergraduate Studies will be completed in 2012.

I remain focused on my day to day life and pray for all parties involved to someday be responsible and come forward to make amends to my family.

  1. Background check on the Teacher/Coach who sued me: 3 DUI’S, 2 were during the trial against me…WHILE HER ATTORNEY WAS SINGING HER PRAISES IN ONE COURTROOM HE WAS IN ANOTHER COURTROOM IN THE SAME STATE REDUCING HER PRISON SENTENCE FROM 6 MONTHS TO PROBATION….

    irst) Birth Year Court Docket No. Disposition Sentenced

  2. In updating my family status I would now like to include a few milestones we have reached.

    Hope is now a graduate of West Virginia Wesleyan, is employed and is an Assistant Swim Coach herself. Sighting “past experiences” as her yardstick of “what not to do” Sensitive, caring and knowledgable, the parents of the swimmers are thrilled to have her on board.

    Rachel is nearing her graduation from Manchester Community College, employed and active in the art field, photography, modeling and running multiple businesses.

    Mama is happy she got them through…alive and with their education in tact.

  3. As noted above ” As I was a pro se Attorney there are no avenues to overturn a Judges decision.” apparently there is a way but I just did not know of it. The bigger picture is really HOW abusive teachers or coaches (or even convicted criminals) get to stay near our children. After six years of research…I finally have the answer to that. Education “passing the trash” is common place in America’s educational system. The offender’s are asked to resign quietly in return their background is hidden and they move on to another school. Pennsylvania is now actively trying to pass laws to stop this educational practice. Pennsylvania also passed outstanding legislation last year concerning background checks (including criminal history, arrests and convictions) along with employment deterrents for teachers who have dirty backgrounds. It is hard to believe that ANYONE COULD BE TEACHING OUR CHILDREN REGARDLESS OF THEIR BACKGROUND…but it’s true. (2012)

  4. Its been quite a few years since the retaliatory attack on my family.

    To date my eldest daughter Hope is a regular missionary in third world countries – is close to attaining her RD and PhD in the nutrition fields. She is happy, healthy and strives daily to help those who cannot help themselves.

    My younger daughter is an activist for all civil liberties – a steadfast feminist – through her art work, writings and photography she is relentless is helping expose inequity in every area of life. She is also happy and healthy — determined to be an advocate for the masses.

    It obvious to me the abuse they suffered in high school and the corruption and injustice they both suffered and witnessed have shaped their life decisions and efforts in their walk of their lives and futures.

    They feel deeply that what can and should be corrected in our world deserves their full attention – they are strong, educated and determined to be a part of solutions for the future generations.
