          May 11, 2017

          Crystal says she brought Ronnie and his 16-year-old son, Shawn, into her home when she found out they were practically homeless and that the teen might be placed in foster care. Ten months later, she claims Ronnie is obsessed with her and watches her every move and although she’s tried to kick him out numerous times, he won’t leave.
