Both Baltimore City Police and Baltimore County Police in Maryland verified information stated on an FBI report about Willie E. Mabry regarding his prior arrest and conviction of 2nd Degree Rape back in 1979. Rev. Mabry is the pastor of Zion Traveler’s Baptist Church in Monroe, LA and the Accountant for the City of Grambling, LA.
On this afternoon of October 7, 2010 Detective Dottie Moses from the Public Affairs Department of the Baltimore City Police and, Corporal Hill from the Baltimore County Police in Towson, MD called The Fount simultaneously (literally) to confirm Mabry’s criminal record.
According to the FBI file, Mabry was convicted 1980-01-08 on a guilty plea and received 6 months on a suspended sentence for that 1979 offense. It is unclear at present as to whether that sentence was plead down from a felony to a misdemeanor.
Mabry’s 1979 rape conviction was prior to when national sex offender registration laws went into effect in 1994, but a continual pattern of deviant and predatory behavior over the years may have emerged.
In our previous article entitled “Grambling City Accountant Accused Of Child Molestation” Felicia Mabry, the estranged wife of Willie Mabry says that her daughter told her Mabry assaulted her back in June of this year and, alleged that local judges attending Mabry’s church were in prominent positions there and protecting Mabry.
Five hours after this story was published, Felicia Mabry received a phone call from the investigating officer requesting a DNA test for the child in question. This comes 3 months after Felicia Mabry’s initial complaint to the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Department and, according to the District Attorney’s office to date, the matter is still under investigation.
The FBI report also showed Mabry was arrested in March of 1974 for rape. This coincides with a news story by another publication local to Monroe, called the Monroe Free Press which stated Mabry was arrested by the Baltimore City Police in 1974 for rape but not convicted. The FBI report also had no conviction listed.
In addition, Felicia Mabry states while being married to him two years ago Willie Mabry was fired from Amedisys Hospice in Baton Rouge for sexual harassment and that two separate incidents were reported against him before being fired. Felicia Mabry says she was completely unaware of Mabry’s history until she “started putting two and two together.”
According to Grambling Mayor Martha Andrus, there is no mention of a prior arrest on Willie Mabry’s application for employment with the City of Grambling. Andrus said “It is evident that Grambling Chief of Police Tommy Clark did not perform a thorough background check.”
