Finally–Nevada requests Criminal investigations in guardianship

from mainstream mega media:

The accompanying text has many quotes that most of us are familiar with:

When it comes to your civil rights, being put under guardianship is worse than being sent to prison.  Those words from a judge who sits on the commission. 

“Later my aunt was examined by a neurologist who determined she was competent,” Brenda Ralphs told the commission, through tears.  “My aunt was victimized based on a defective document and incorrect diagnosis by an unqualified person!”

Brenda Ralphs found our Contact 13 investigation online, then flew in from Seattle to share her aunt’s story with the guardianship commission. 

She told commission members she fought to free her 92-year-old aunt, Barbara Lasco, from an unnecessary guardianship, but succeeded only after Parks and her lawyer drained nearly $20,000 from Lasco’s accounts.

The commission also voted to establish a bill of rights for people under guardianship and to ensure they have legal counsel. 

One Supreme Court Justice remarked “what has been going on in guardianship is just plain crazy.

The commission unanimously voted to send a letter to all sheriffs and district attorneys in the state, as well as the Attorney General, asking them to prosecute misconduct and seek restitution for people subject to unjust guardianships.
