How did Ted Rollins, who regularly flies around the country on private jets, manage to get a support judgment that might be expected for a janitor, a school teacher, or a journalist? We are continuing to investigate that question. But one answer appears to rest with a CS-41 form, an Alabama child-support document that is signed under penalty of perjury. . . .
The CS-41 is dated April 27, 2005, and published reports show that Campus Crest Communities already had started at that point, with Rollins as CEO. The South Carolina court found that Rollins was president of St. James Capital LLC, an investment firm he founded with his cousin--R. Randall Rollins, chairman of Rollins Inc. in Atlanta. The South Carolina judge found that the Rollins family is "extremely wealthy."
The form said he made $50,000 a year and worked for Reynolds Mortgage company in Brentwood Tennessee, for a guy named Ken Reynolds--and that Reynolds Mortgage was withholding the support funds for the girls, and the state of Alabama would send it to me. The (child-support) check was late by two months . . . early in the first year (after the divorce) in Alabama. I called Reynolds Mortgage Company and got Ken Reynolds on the phone and asked why my girls' child support was late. I said I was Sherry Rollins, and I (had been) married to Ted Rollins. He said, "I know Ted Rollins," and he stated that Ted had never worked for him. . . . He had sold Ted some land in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, on which he built some apartments. That's when I learned that Ted had a company called Campus Crest. . . . Out of that conversation, I learned (Ted) had never worked for (Mr. Reynolds), and Ted had this company. Ted built one of his first complexes (at Middle Tennessee State in Murfreesboro).
