While growing up on a planation in Mississippi, Lillian was molested by three different men from age 6 to 12, at the ages of 14 & 16, and raped by a fourth man. All rapists were considered to be friends of the family.
Out of fear for her life, Lillian killed a man. The District Attorney charged Lillian with first and third degree murder. Under those charges Lillian was facing life in prison without the possibility of parole or 20 to 40 years. She had periods of speechlessness, staring and immobility. Lillian was like a zombie. Her charge was dropped down to 20 to 40 years. Instead of receiving 20 to 40 years, she received a sentence of 5 to 15 years. In the end, Lillian only served 4yrs and 9mos.
Currently, the ministry that the Lord has entrusted Lillian and her husband with is called Forgiven Ministries, Inc.
