Tara Ciccone via Facebook:

“The people who owned the rink KNEW about these allegations for years. I worked for them in management. I was THERE on many occasions when they talked to him about it. Their answer was to transfer him from Coweta to Henry county because schools in Coweta stopped coming based on allegations about Malcolm. Starlite KNEW…..but Malcolm was a draw for the kids so they overlooked it …and hired him back all three times that I fired him! Hold Starlite and the owner’s, Angela Lewis Williams, Clint Couey and Michael Couey responsible too. Hit then where it hurts….BOYCOTT THEIR BUSINESS.”
