Sex offer caught on tape

The mom propositioned for sex by the founder of a Christian school speaks out. Her identity is no longer secret. The graphic sex tapes you first heard on Eyewitness News are now making national headlines. But until now, you couldn't see the face of the mom who was asked to trade sex for her daughter's enrollment fee.

"He didn't know me. I was a stranger," said Tamiku Robertson. "For him to make those kind of allegations towards me, justice has not been done."

Robertson is the mom behind the graphic tapes you've been hearing this week.

"I've never had to sell my body to get what I need for my kids," said Tamiku. "That was totally out of line and disrespectful and hurtful to me."

Tamiku is talking about her conversations with the co-founder of Parkway Christian School in Spring. Lavern Jordan offered to waive $300 in enrollment fees at Parkway Christian School in exchange for sex.

"You think that's the Christian thing to do?" we asked Jordan.

"No. Thanks, Wayne," said Jordan.

"Then why'd you do it?" we asked him.

We all heard the sex talk for ourselves.

Jordan: "Excuse me and I don't mean to be so blunt but I am talking about f------ you, Tamiku."

Robertson: "You talking about what?"

Jordan: "F------ you."

Jordan: "For the $300 I would expect maybe we could get together several times, you think?"

Robertson: "Several times, whatcha mean several times?"

Jordan: "Well I don't know, you might like whatcha getting."

Tamiku claims she recorded conversations after Jordan began talking about sex and fantasies at their first face to face meeting.

"I recorded to let everyone know what this man does when he meets with parents," she said.

She went to community activist Quannel X for help.

"I was absolutely appalled by the things which I heard," he said. "This is much more than a proposition of a man who's weak in the flesh. This is a man who used his position in a school to manipulate, to extort this woman for sex because she was vulnerable because she did not have the money."

Before our parking lot confrontation with Mr. Jordan, the school's website called him its spiritual backbone. Now Jordan's face and picture are gone A statement posted says Jordan "...is no longer affiliated in any way with Parkway Christian School." It says the school has forgiven him for his wrong action. But there is no direct apology to Tamiku Robertson, no promise of an investigation.

"It says a lot in here about Christian theology," said Quannel X. "I want parkway to understand something Christianity is never what you say. Christianity is what you practice. This man was claiming the gospels of Christianity as a cloak and a veneer as a wolf in sheep's clothing."

"People pretend to be one thing but all along they are something else," Tamiku said.
