Stop the horrific abuse of Michigan’s vulnerable by attorneys and judges.

Leave a comment

For almost 30 years, tens of thousands of Michigan’s elderly and developmentally disabled citizens have been subjected to neglect, abuse, torture, forced isolation, exploitation and embezzlement by the state’s probate judges and attorneys, professional guardianship companies and public administrators. 

Declared incapacitated “wards” by a probate court judge, with little or no corroborating medical evidence, Michigan’s most vulnerable are stripped of their statutory, civil, constitutional. and human rights and handed over to a court appointed guardian.

Even though wards are innocent, it is a life sentence during which they are forced from their homes and into a long-term nursing care, assisted living or unlicensed group home with subhuman living conditions. 

In as little as a year, wards have been rendered completely indigent and reliant upon social services and benefits such as Medicaid. Their homes are sold off, their savings accounts, IRAs, investment accounts, cars, personal belongings, keepsakes, heirlooms and jewelry stolen.

Recent media investigations have implicated guardians and judges in the forced separation of families and isolation of the vulnerable; massive over-abolishing [robate,billing real estate fraud; and missing assets that number in the millions of dollars.

An in-depth investigation into elder abuse at the Detroit-area Oakland County Probate Court found campaign ties between Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Oakland County Probate Court Chief Judge Kathleen Ryan. 

Nessel’s Elder Abuse Task Force has accomplished nothing.

  • Judges already do not obey the law as written so it’s announced legislative probate reform initiatives are pointless. Reforms are pointless without consequences to those who have flagrantly violated and continue to violate Michigan law.
  • Nessel’s recent, unexplained firing of public administrators John Yun. Jennifer Carney, Thomas Brennan Fraser and Robert Kirk accomplished nothing since they can still take roles as court-appointed guardians and conservators.
  • Nessel and Whitmer both know about the abuse of Michigan’s vulnerable by it’s probate courts. State Court Administrator Milton Mack,Jr.l and the Michigan Supreme Court have actively shielded probate court judges from investigation. 

We, the undersigned, demand that the abuse, neglect and exploitation Michigan’s elderly and developmentally disabled individuals by the state’s probate courts must stop!

We demand criminal investigations into any and all probate attorneys, public administrators, guardianship companies and judges suspected of criminal behavior and abuse of power. 

We demand investigations not initiatives.

We demand the immediate resignation of the State Court Administrator. 

We demand an explanation as to why no action has been taken against judges or their appointees who have donated to or accepted donations from the Nessel and Whitmer campaigns.

State of Florida sued for trafficking and abuse of elderly under guardianship

SE Texas Record

By David Yates | Sep 17, 2019

SAN ANTONIO – A group of adult children sued the state of Florida’s governor and attorney general in Florida Northern District Court, alleging that, under court appointed guardianship, their parents’ estate, assets, 401k funds, social security money, jewelry, cars and homes are being stolen.

After all is liquidated or redistributed, the senior citizens under these alleged unconstitutional court appointed guardianships are starved, denied medical care or prescribed high doses of toxic psychotropic medication to intentionally cause death, according to a press release.

Plaintiffs Barbara Stone, Lesa Martino and Patty Reid are collectively calling for an executive order from President Trump to the FBI and the Department of Justice to enforce the law and criminally investigate the Defendants.

“The Florida guardianship statute is being used as a pretense of legitimacy for an immoral, inhumane, barbaric color of law proceeding wherein judges are working together with attorneys and guardians to abuse vulnerable adults,” wrote the Plaintiffs in their Sept. 5 complaint.

Governor Rick DeSantis and Attorney General Ashley Moody are Defendants named in the lawsuit along with Florida Senate Chairman Bill Galvano, Florida Speaker of the House John Oliva, Office of Public and Private Guardians Director Carol Berkowitz who recently resigned along with the state’s Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis and Secretary of Elder Affairs Richard Prudom.

Gretchen Rachel Hammond, investigative reporter, fills us in on the after shock of her expose’ on Oakland county Probate Court, Michigan.  Gretchen’s five part series, fully documented in tedious detail the corruption and abuses that have been on going for years!  The number of lives destroyed while predators in the system were given ownership and control of vulnerable elderly an disabled individuals, allowing them to warehouse these people and help themselves to their assets is a national disgrace.  All of it done within the full view of the state’s attorney general, Dana Nessel.  She wasn’t the only AG to turn a blind eye, just the last in a long line.

“It seems the guardians and judges at the Oakland County Probate Court have been doing a bit of house cleaning since August:

Elderly and developmentally disabled victims are getting moved out of unlicensed group homes.

Small refunds are being offered to victim family members on the proviso that they sign a form saying they received a refund for “accidental over billing.”

Guardians are trying to close out cases and get rid of their own assets (such as half million dollar homes).

Files in case dockets are being altered or removed (such as accounts, change of address forms and ex parte orders).

As of last week, the court’s only public access computer (the one my team and I used to research case files without paying $1-per-page) is gone.”

Tune in as Gretchen fills us in on the recent activity in Michigan.  Amazing what a top-notch investigative journalist can do!

Update from Gretchen Rachel Hammond about Oakland Co. (MI) Probate Court which she investigated thoroughly for her five-part series, “The Fortress.” ( https://www.dailykos.com/…/-The-Fortress-Part-One-of-Five-U…).

From Gretchen: Good, sneaky and bad news.

It seems the guardians and judges at the Oakland County Probate Court have been doing a bit of house cleaning since August:

As of last week, the court’s only public access computer (the one my team and I used to research case files without paying $1-per-page) is gone.

So, the good: removal of victims from unlicensed group homes.

The sneaky: small refund as long as you agree to saying. “No worries. Small oops. Could have happened to anyone.”

The bad: destruction of evidence and hiding assets. If Dana Nessel was really investigating these crimes, one would imagine that such activity would be a naughty no-no.

Tonight, Patricia & Robert Femia join us to talk about the downstream effects of predatory guardianships. Patricia’s mother, captured and isolated from her family, soon succumbed to the psychological torture inflicted upon her. In a classic case of trauma based bonding, she rejected all ties to her daughter and her family. Instead, she identified with her captors. In what was a clear case of the Stockholm Syndrome, and the effects on the family as this unfolded were staggering.

“This horrific ordeal has left me and my family completely heart-broken. My mother was taken care of and had her daughter and son-in-law and grandchildren living closely around her every day. She lived comfortably, was healthy and had her independence for many years. Once this whole scenario unfolded,she died all alone in a nursing home.”

Tune in as Patricia and Robert tell how they managed to survive this attack on their family, and where are they today in managing the damage.

Caring for Elders: Heartbreak and Guardian Abuse

The elderly in American society shouldn’t have to plan for the loss of their rights and their estates in their old age. But the current guardianship system threatens the retired community with just that.

Guardian abuse came about from a broken system. States often provide guardians for when the elderly and incapacitated need outside care. County or state courts appoint them to take care of their wards either personally or financially.

But the system failed thousands of people by allowing dishonest people and corrupt politicians to handle guardianship. Public guardians cut off wards from communication with their families, charge massive fees, and in some cases, cause the death of their wards.

A System Motivated By Greed

Not all guardians commit these atrocities. However, more and more victims report guardian abuse every day.

“It’s nothing personal, it’s all about the money,” says Charlie Pascal, whose mother-in-law was a victim. “That’s what I tell all the victims. You have to get past it.”

The National Association to Stop Guardian Abuse (NASGA) writes that guardianship laws threaten “the health and wealth to our elderly and disabled citizens.” Director Elaine Renoire said that while people are working to pass laws, “legislation is slow moving, so we’re still at it.”

Guardianships For No Reason

The system supposedly helps those that need it. But what happens when those that don’t get caught?

When Mary Whitten and her sister, Cos Skaife, dealt with their uncle’s guardianship in the State of Pennsylvania, they had no idea how much was involved. The two collected horror stories of wards over-medicated and isolated from their families by unscrupulous guardians.
