Here we are at the 5 year anniversary of this Daytona NA nightmare event. Since this occurred there have been additional events of harassment of local Holly Hill citizens and business owners. AA Volusia County Intergroup has bullied multiple times people out of pavilions, including threatening and harassing locals.  They had an incident where an NA member tried to hit another member with a baseball bat!

We commend Holly Hill for moving forward with this new Park rule!  We Hope they respect Holly Hill more than Daytona Groups do. Continue reading

Mandated Daytona AA Member Rapes 9 Year Old Port Orange Girl

James Maxwell 43, a convicted violent felon was invited to a Christmas party in Port Orange by the girls parents. He later returned to abduct and rape the little 9 year old girl. They spent the night in a park. James Maxwell was on probation at the time and was attending mandated Daytona Narcotics Anonymous meetings and Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. He has a long criminal history. He served 9 years for attempted murder in 1988 and 2 years for burglary in 1994. He is being held with no bail. This is horrible what happened to this little girl. The practice of mandating violent felons to meetings where minors are present needs to stop !

A 9-year-old Port Orange girl who was kidnapped and raped told police she woke up to find her neighbor, James Maxwell, sitting in a chair in her bedroom, according to court documents obtained Monday.

Maxwell, 43, who had been a holiday party guest at the girl’s parent’s house in the Brandy Hills neighborhood earlier Thursday night, then abducted the girl and raped her, police said. Reports say Maxwell told the child to take off her clothes. When she refused and resisted, Maxwell is accused of striking the child in the head.

When the mother reported her daughter missing, she told police she suspected Maxwell.

The mother’s reasons for concern about Maxwell, according to reports, was that “he was known to act strangely around children, he had a violent criminal past and left his residence early in the morning without explanation,” court records show.

According to reports filed in circuit court, authorities say Maxwell drove the child to a wooded area, raped her and took her to a park, where they stayed for the night.
