Ted Rollins' Daughter Knew of her CEO Father's "Unusual Relationship" With His Stepson

Sarah Rollins (right) with her father, Ted,
and sister, Emma

The oldest daughter of Campus Crest Communities CEO Ted Rollins says she was aware that her father had "somewhat of an unusual relationship" with his stepson.

When I asked Sarah Rollins if she was referring to the investigation in North Carolina of possible child sexual abuse involving her father, she said, "Yes, that's what I'm referring to."

Sarah Rollins joins her mother, Birmingham resident Sherry Carroll Rollins, in confirming that an investigation took place. Referencing what she apparently understands to have gone on, Sarah Rollins says she worries about the impact such revelations might have on her half brother.

"I certainly think that is something that is no good, but I just know that (my half brother) would not want it to be known to anybody who decided to look it up one day," Sarah Rollins says. "He has a family, and he's very private . . . "

My conversation with Sarah Rollins came when she unexpectedly called me at home one evening. She was nearing the end of her senior year at Mountain Brook High School and now is enrolled as a freshman at the University of the South at Sewanee. Other than one brief followup message via Facebook, this is the only interaction I've had with her.

Sarah Rollins comes across as a bright, articulate young woman who has had to find her way through a turbulent family situation--one that has been made much worse by the gross injustice inflicted upon her mother in the divorce from her father. That divorce, which Sherry Rollins initiated in South Carolina (where the family lived at the time) and saw it litigated in Greenville for three years, was unlawfully moved to Shelby County, Alabama. And that's where Circuit Judge D. Al Crowson issued a divorce judgment that was so grossly unjust--and one-sided in Ted Rollins favor--that it caused Sherry Rollins and her two daughters (Sarah and Emma) to wind up on food stamps.

We have written extensively about Rollins v. Rollins, a case I call the worst courtroom cheat job I've encountered in the civil arena. Sarah Rollins has a unique perspective on all of the issues involved. She was an infant, being held on her mother's hip, when Ted Rollins severely beat his stepson in 1995. In fact, Sherry Rollins had to sit her daughter down before trying to drag Ted Rollins off her son and finally calling 911 for assistance.

Sarah Rollins, her mother has told me, was an early talker. But witnessing the beating disturbed her so much that she stopped talking for quite a while.

We think Sarah Rollins has a valuable perspective on family turmoil--and the courtroom injustice that can make it infinitely worse. We will share her thoughts in a series of upcoming posts.

One of the and in fact to-date, THE BEST comment I've found regarding the condition of immoral bankrupt U.S.A.:

"... The shaping of the will of Congress and the choosing of the American president has become a privilege reserved to the country's equestrian classes, aka the 20 per cent of the population that holds 93 per cent of the wealth, the happy few who run the corporations and the banks, own and operate the news and entertainment media, compose the laws and govern the universities, control the philanthropic foundations, the policy institutes, the casinos, and the sports arenas. Their anxious and spendthrift company bears the mark of oligarchy ridden with the disease diagnosed by the ancient Greeks as [PLEONEXIA] (my emphasis added), the appetite for more of everything - more McMansions, more defence contracts, more beachfront, more tax subsidy, more prosperous fools.

... Aristotle mentions a faction of especially reactionary oligarchs in ancient Athens who took a vow of selfishness not unlike the anti-tax pledge administered by Grover Norquist to Republican stalwarts in modern Washington:

".. I will be an enemy to the people and will devise all the harm against them which I can..."


Basically, the American Empire has already collapsed, We The People in the ordinary "class" do not know what to do about this experience we have never processed.

How to right the incredibly WRONG "law" that is dictating to U.S.

Sick is a standard, to manufacture the sickest (Ted Rollins, et al) and have them destroy women, children and then of course the nucleus of society FAMILY, look at the rewards gained from joining the TRIBAL paedophilia and barbaric cult. No conscience in the predatory that have crossed the line of psychopaths. Obama was and is not able to "win" because he did not perform the Iran bomb AND DOUBLE CROSSED "China" ... wind farms et al, etc.

"... China is actively taking steps to phase out the US dollar which will decrease volatility in oil and commodity prices and deride the ‘exorbitant privilege' the USA commands as the issuer of the reserve currency at the centre of a post-war international financial architecture which is now failing.

.. In 1971, U.S. Treasury Secretary John Connally said, "It's our currency and your problem". China is frustrated with what it sees as the US government’s mismanagement of the dollar, and is now actively promoting the cross-border use of its own currency, the yuan, or also called the renminbi, in trade and investment.

I feel for young Ms. Rollins, her mother, and her sister. Sounds like Rollins men have a history of behaving badly and making Rollins women pay for it.

I live in ATL, and the social circles over here are abuzz about Danielle Rollins and her divorce from Glen Rollins, who was a big shot at Orkin.

Word is that the divorce involves serial philandering on Glen's part, with sex addiction and a trip to the same clinic that treated Tiger Woods.

Danielle and Glen live in a humble home called Boxwood. You can check it out here:

Sounds like Danielle and Glen were living in opulence while the Rollins ladies in Birmingham were on food stamps.

Oh, I almost forgot, check out this outdoor party at Boxwood, which featured special guest Oscar de la Renta. I didn't get an invitation.

Anonymous: Check out Danielle Rollins facebook page and her new book out by Rizzoli Press: SOIREE', thats a fancy french name for party. Oh and look at Jane Fonda at an intimate little gathering at Danielle's home too- on facebook page.

Wonder what her divorce settlement was?

I would love to know about a divorce settlement, too. Had my ears on alert. Actually, not sure they have gotten to the settlement stage yet, but lots of buzz about it over here.

Glen has been a very bad boy, I hear.

Thanks for info about Danielle's book. The girl does have style.

Ted Rollins might be a total ass wipe, but he has two very pretty daughters. And Sarah sounds like a good soul. That must come from her mother. Don't see how it could come from her dad.

LS, I find it interesting that Sarah Rollins called you and not the other way around.

Makes me think she wanted to get some things off her chest. I come from a family with some pretty heavy secrets, and I know what a burden it can be to carry those around.

I send my prayers and best thoughts to this young woman.

Thanks for a thoughtful comment. If Sarah Rollins sees your words, I'm sure she will appreciate them.

I would like to make clear that I never wanted to make Sarah or her sister, Emma, part of this story--in any sort of personal way. Their role in the story, til now, has been only from what court documents show about the cheat job their father inflicted upon them over child support.

I never asked to speak with the girls or involve them in any way--and never would have even considered it unless their mother had suggested it. As it turned out, Sarah called me, out of the blue, and I appreciate her concerns and thoughtful comments. She sounds like much more of an adult than her father does, based on the one phone conversation I've had with him.

For what it's worth, I've never met Sarah or Emma, and as far as I know, they wouldn't know me if I passed them on the street--unless maybe they've seen a video or two on this blog.

Anyway, I share your good wishes for the three Rollins women of Birmingham. They all have been victimized, and they deserve your supportive thoughts.

In military families homicide as the highest number in America, is a reality and also, abuse of spouses is also a high number of victims in the families of the military.

Children are seriously abused and worse, brainwashed to continue being in a killer society reality.

Ted Rollins is one of the elite of the American society and this standard has finally begun to shake people up.

In the event I was carrying the name Rollins, I would change this immediately. A first step in healing an "identity."

Healing the "wound of the soul," "I'm not worthy," is done all the time by victims of predators and the psychopaths, as long as the fracture in the "self image" has not crossed the no conscience boundary.

Again, Edgar Cayce and Carl Jung in the "dream work(s)" had much success in serving humanity for the healing crises back then. Today the 'practices' are used and do actually succeed.

Highest sources of verve, to the women in this saga: America gone rogue and totally uncivilized, absent common decent manners.

Must not lower our own 'selves' in to the tribes of beasts.

Sleep a healing dream, create an art form of understanding, even while awake.

This might be a good place for me to address something that might be news to LS readers. Ted Rollins has started a Web site called, in an apparent effort to counter our reporting.

I've been told by a number of sources that Ted Rollins has claimed several times that I have some sort of improper relationship with his ex wife, Sherry Rollins, and that explains my reporting on the Rollins v. Rollins divorce case. That isn't true, of course, and Mr. Rollins probably has crossed the boundary into defamatory communications.

He even has touched on this via his "truth" web site at a post titled "Setting the Record Straight," which states in part:

"I am not sure of what the relationship is between my ex wife and Mr. Schuler, but it is somewhat suspect in that he cites a variety of things that he cannot support and seems to have a personal issue here."

Aside from the fact that Ted Rollins can't spell my name correctly, it's curious that I've had a number of people say they thought my posts on the Rollins case were "too personal." I have no idea what that even means, but I take it as a clear sign that the person has been in touch with the Rollins propaganda machine.

In fact, I have quite a bit of information that points to an organized campaign to shut down my reporting on the Rollins case. More on that coming down the road.

As regular readers know, I've been married for quite a while--it will soon be 23 years. Mrs. Schnauzer, in addition to being a recurring character on this blog, has been my one and only wife--and I intend to keep it that way. This probably is news to Ted Rollins, but not all men cheat on their wives. Some men respect their wives and marriage enough that they don't even want to cheat. I have flaws, but cheating on my wife isn't one of them. In fact, Mrs. Schnauzer was present for several of my meetings with Sherry Rollins.

For the record, Sherry Rollins seems like an honorable person, so her ex husband's insinuations are typical of the insulting and abusive way he has treated her.

Anyway, I thought I would let readers know that Ted Rollins is trying to cover up his own ugly actions by attacking the messenger. If whispers about something "personal" are the best he can do, desperation must have set in.

Thanks for the info on Ted Rollins Web site. Will have to check it out. Hate to give him traffic, but my curiosity is killing me.

Reading your comment about Ted Rollins Truth website it struck me that like Mitt Romney, the truth is whatever they want it to be at that particular moment. I hope America realizes these two seem to have a lot in common; Romney abuses dogs and Rollins abuses his own family members. Americans should beware; Romney will abuse poor and old citizens as well as women if he gets in.

… I’m not sure …

“… Ted Rollins’ Truth SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT By Ted Rollins The Facts ~ this site was created the set the record straight about Ted Rollins .. Mr. Rollins is the co-chairman and chief executive officer of Campus Crest Communities ..

… An amateur blogger, Roger Shuler, has repeatedly attacked Mr. Rollins via the Legal Schnauzer blog and other online forums .. Unfortunately, Shuler, who was fired from his last journalism job for misconduct, has a personal vendetta against Mr. Rollins .. This vendetta has resulted in frequent blog posts about Mr. Rollins that contain complete fabrications and utter misrepresentations ..

… I am not sure of what the relationship is between my ex wife and Mr. Schuler, but it is somewhat suspect in that he cites a variety of things that he cannot support and seems to have a personal issue here ..

Dear Mr. Rollins, please come and post at Legal Schnauzer so that the community which is definitely exposed to your “CEO Truth Setting the Record Straight” and can without question debate your “personal issues.”

left a comment LS, however, it does not appear the site has any interest in comments/rk

I went to Rollins truth site and GOOD FOR HIM.. He only will get more readers coming here to your site to find out the truth.. He did you a favor and he does not know it. I bet your readers count went up didnt it? and you'd think with all his money he could get a decent site. It looks like a 5th grader designed it.. He looks creepy with those glasses on.

Please, please lay off Honorable Judge Crowson. He is not doing anything that the other judges aren't doing. Supplementing one's income is commonplace in the judicial system. Heck, it's even legal..if you don't get caught.

I know you and Ms. Carol. Rollins is a moron for even hinting that you would have an improper relationship. You're one of the few folks I know that has a solid marriage.

Apparently this guy knew a sexual deviant when he saw one & wanted nothing else to do with Campus Crest Communities Inc (CCG)

Very interesting article. Thanks so much for sharing. I hear quite often from lower level Campus Crest employees who say it is a terrible place to work. This guy was very high up the food chain, right underneath Ted Rollins and his chief compadre, Mike Hartnett. Wonder why Mr. Howell hit the exits.

The public will let a lot slide but association with sexual abuse of children still causes revulsion. Example: "Hey Song" being banned from more and more schools and was removed from being aired at the Super Bowl. Song gets a crowd going like no other but is being increasingly banned.
