Risky Business

An elite private school, a top-drawer law firm, and lots of lewd talk.

Victor: My house is yours and always feel comfortable to come by.

Sunday, June 1

9:10 a.m.

Jason Crosby

Jenny: Trying to work out and all I'm thinking of is you.

Victor: Left you a voice mail with the same problem.

9:58 a.m.

Jenny to husband: Hey, I miss you...

Husband: Miss you back. Exhausted from working and can't wait to see you guys this weekend.

Jenny: Can you transfer money down today?

12:17 p.m.

Husband: Yes. I've transferred $6,000 down. There is just enough to cover everything this week.

Jenny: Awesome! Good job, Smorsies.

Side note from husband: "Smores is her pet name for me. I used to really like it."

3:20 p.m.

Victor: Thanks for calling. It brought a big smile to my face.

6:20 p.m.

Jenny: I want to ravage you.

June 2

7:06 a.m.

Victor: What time do I have to be at church and what do I have to wear?

Side note from husband: "I have to say this shocked me... Jenny is taking a guy that she met 14 days ago and has fucked four times to watch one of my four kids' graduation school play in the church with all of the other parents."

When the messages — which must have taken hours to type into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet — end, Glenn fills in the reader: "At this point, Jenny buys a new cell phone with the money I have just wired." He found all the text messages on her discarded BlackBerry.

Parts of the conversations described above have appeared without names on a website called Abovethelaw.com. The Wall Street Journal's legal blog even linked to it. And Miami's Daily Business Review ran a tepid story about the law firm's public relations nightmare — again without naming names or providing details.

Neither Jenny nor Victor would comment about the situation. But Jenny told Abovethelaw.com her hubby encouraged her to sell porn because it brought in cash. "He told me to get back on to make money for the family... I think it turned him on, me doing it."

Reached by email last week, Glenn Ballman would say only: "The situation speaks for itself. I am disgusted by the whole series of events."

Parents who received the text messages are disgusted too — but mostly with Glenn. A mother named Julie Seguin says, "It's pretty low of the husband."

Dad James Hawkins adds, "It should have been kept private."

Says Sheldon Lowe, father of a fifth-grader: "Do I stand in judgment of her? No. Did I enjoy hearing the story? Absolutely."

On June 29, after New Times began asking about the text messages, St. Stephen's Head of School Silvia Larrauri sent a mass email to parents. "I urge you to make no comment if you are contacted by the media." She added that the Ballmans were no longer St. Stephen's parents.

Contacted about the school's parent/porn-star policy, Larrauri responded, "Well, we do screen our parents... But I'm not sure you can screen for something like that."
