Florida elected leadership, elder protection advocates, Sara Caldwell, Tance Roberts, Sean Bogle, and the media,

dougToday I write with a heavy heart as it marks Day 60 of Dr. Lillie White’s abduction and isolation by professional guardian and attorney Sara Caldwell, her attorney Tance Roberts and the court’s investigative attorney Sean Bogle with the full endorsement of Flagler County FL Judge Margaret Hudson. I have come to anticipate predatory guardian’s actions and have learned how to pressure them. Exposure is often the innocent victim’s only ally. Dr. White had resided at her home at 22 Wellford Lane in Palm Coast, FL.

Sadly after two weeks of working the phone and email full time I have failed to find this 88 year old or any Florida authority who could or would intercede with Sara Caldwell to force her to reveal Lillie’s location to her family.

Democracies normally use a series of checks and balances to insure equal justice for all. Law enforcement investigate, district attorney’s prosecute, judges adjudicate, and juries determine guilt or innocence. However, in adult guardianships a single person, a judge, has sole responsibility for all four components, including immunity. As judges can be easily swayed, official law enforcement is your best ally when professional predatory guardians engage in blatant criminal activities, including human trafficking.

In Florida, I have found every criminal investigative entity defer to the judge’s orders when charges involve a guardian. Every entity, including the leadership, I have contacted have deferred to Judge Hudson to investigate Lillie’s abduction and insure her welfare. Those include:
– 7th District Chief Judge
– 7th District Clerk of Courts
– Florida Supreme Court Administrator of Courts
– Flagler County Sheriff
– Florida Adult Protective Services
– Florida Department of Elder Affairs
– Florida Office of Public and Professional Guardians
– Florida Department of Law Enforcement
– Florida Attorney General

No one should wonder why guardianship abuse in Florida is such a problem. By design the probate judge assumes control and authority over 10 government investigative bodies and all aspects of appointment, authority, and immunity for the actions of a guardian. If they are negligent or willfully engage in corrupt practices their damages go on unimpeded. Families entrapped in an involuntary and abusive guardianship have nowhere to turn but to the judge who is sponsoring it.

Would Judge Hudson, AG Pam Bondi, or Gov. Scott accept having a loved one isolated for 60 days and their estate confiscated with no way to see or speak to them?
