Remember that lawyer Brian Ponder who tried to sue us after we broadcasted his ridiculous letter threatening to sue Doherty High School? Well he’s being accused of raping a former client while conducting business out of the mansion of another dead client in which he is squatting.

Back in September a Doherty High School football player named Michael Oppong made national headlines when he made up a story about being suspended by administration for taking a knee during the National Anthem before a football game that his team lost. Shortly after that Doherty High School was flooded with threatening emails and calls from around the country, after black lives matter terrorists like Shaun King organized an online lynch mob and profited off of this student’s lie. One of the people who jumped on board was New York attorney Brian Ponder, who sent this to the school:
After we called him out on his shenanigans, Brian Ponder actually sent Turtleboy an email, threatening to sue us for writing about his threatening letter to the high school.
We sent him a link to the blog just so he could see how badly he humiliated himself. No response.
Well, he’s back!! And this time he’s trying to make a name for himself by urging the police to arrest Ronald Gasser for shooting Joe McKnight during an incident involving road rage. Little did he know that Gasser was already arrested when he gave this interview on the Michaela Pereira show in California:

This guy LOVES to get involved with things he has nothing to do with. He’s just that bored, because apparently no one wants to hire him and thus he has nothing but time to kill. Last week he even proudly bragged about the letter he sent President-Elect Donald Trump, which I’m SURE Trump will be reading:
Not the first time he’s gone after Trump. In 2015 he sued Donald Trump on behalf of his client, who was “cybersquatting” on a domain name that was eerily similar to Trump’s. He lost and Brian Ponder called the decision to dismiss, “very disappointing.”
Dude loves sending letters. Like the one he sent to Cosmopolitan Magazine after they referred to the Kardashians as the “first family” instead of the Obamas:
In the meantime he’s making sure that deadbeats don’t have to pay back their lenders:
Anyway, as you can see with the video above in which he is going to bat for Joe McKnight, the guy likes to carry on like he’s some sort of crusader for social justice. But as we pointed out in our blog about him, he has some serious accusations made against him on Ripoff Report:
We never really followed up with this because he just kind of disappeared. But now that he’s back in the spotlight his accuser has come forward and reached out to Turtleboy Sports to tell us her side of the story. Her name is Britt Stillwell, and here’s part of the email she sent us today:
I’m writing in response to an article you all wrote in Sept. about Brian Ponder. ( I wrote the Ripoff report you all referenced in your September article). May you please consider writing an updated version to this article. For the following reasons:
This week Brian was on HLN for starting a petition to get charges filed in the death of a slain NFL’r…. As you all know, Brian is known for threatening people with lawsuits. You’d think he was an upstanding citizen the way he threatens to invoke the law. But the truth is, Brain deserves to be behind bars. He’s a rapist. A criminal. A fraud.
After learning of Brian’s efforts to see justice in the Joe McKnight case, it made me revisit my own pursuit of justice… I recently posted about 15 videos on my IG (bmfs_08) mostly recordings of Brian justifying raping me; The video of me bound and intoxicated is also posted and more. Brian lied under oath and filed false police reports, all to coerce me to redact my allegations against him…
Anyhow, I dont have a huge platform so I feel like my story wont reach anyone who could help me secure justice. After checking out the videos on my IG, my hope is that my story will be of interest to you. Perhaps people will read about the monster Brian is and demand that I receive justice too.
Pretty serious allegations. But did she have any sort of evidence to back them up? Of course she did:
That’s one of the most disturbing videos we’ve ever seen. That woman was tied up and clearly in pain. But instead of getting her help all those pieces of human garbage around her are laughing at her, recording her, and one seems to be operating a device that is causing even more pain. Clearly the woman in that video is not in any position to consent to sex. Obviously. And the fact that her lawyer of all people, whom she placed her trust in, allegedly had sex with her under those conditions, is insane. But she had more:
“In this link Brian is trying to get me to redact my statements in exchange for his continual representation of me”:
“Here, Brian justifies having sex with me after the party (where Im tied up and intoxicated)”:
“Here Brian’s dad is trying to coerce me into redacting my statements”:
We say “illegally” because his business is registered in Georgia, which would make it illegal for him to conduct business or practice law out of the state of New Jersey.
Here’s the best part – according to the complaint, this is not really his home. He’s actually squatting there after ripping off a former client who ended up dying. Remember his tweet from above about helping people get rid of debt? That apparently is his specialty. And in doing so he would find people who were getting foreclosed on, contact them, and say he could help them save their house. He’d ask them to deed the property over to him and then he’d charge them rent. Then he never paid the mortgage and people lost their house.
Well, the guy who is listed as the owner of this mansion is John A. Rocco, who died in 2014. In 2012 an employee at his now defunct insurance brokerage firm was sentenced to 7 years in prison for using her position to steal millions of dollars. The article on this does not state if this is the reason that John A. Rocco fell into hard financial times, but it’s certainly QUITE the coincidence if it’s not. Either way he retained Brian Ponder’s services (a lawyer who advertises as himself as someone who can help you avoid debt collectors) and Brian Ponder squats there now.
Brittany Stillwell is currently a nurse who is taking the NY bar exam, and wants to practice law. According to the filed complaint Brian Ponder hired her to work in his law office (at the mansion). He didn’t pay her and she sued him for her wages. Brian Ponder never answered so she can finish off that case and get a judgment.
Obviously we wanted to get Brian Ponder’s side of the story because we’re just fair and balanced like that. But after asking him about the alleged rape:
He immediately declined comment by blocking us:
So yea, this guy is the shadiest, most fucked up sleazeball we’ve ever written about. And I mean that. We’ve profiled a lot of asshats on Turtleboy Sports, but this guy takes the dickbag cake. He prays on the vulnerable. He writes letters to pretty much anyone involved in a high profile story, hoping to make a name for himself, which is exactly what he’s doing with Joe McKnight. Of course he can’t practice law in most of these states so he hands them off to a real attorney and takes his finder’s fee. He also admittedly has sex with clients, films them in a deadly state of intoxication, and allegedly even raped this woman and tried to intimidate her to cover it up. We DARE this pussy to try to sue us again. We look forward to laughing in his face and continuing to humiliate him until he is behind bars where he belongs.
We all need to stand up against sexual violence. The fact that this woman’s rapist is basically getting away with it because he’s an attorney cannot stand. We urge you to bombard him on Twitter and on Facebook. Hell, even tweet at Michaela Pereira to let her know about the scumbag she just had on her show. This guy wants to be famous. Let’s help him become Turtleboy famous.
We urge you to support the Turtleboy Sponsors by doing business with them. Without them none of this is possible. Click on any of them to check out their sites or Facebook pages.
