To whom it may concern, the following pages are a revised version of a
letter written to the Michigan AG. It has mostly just been corrected of
spelling errors. But the letter points out the problems we have had with
Wayne County Probate Court. It does not follow the law! We need some
kind of oversight of the court and GALs and Guardians. I affirm that this and
the following pages are true to the best of my knowledge, under the penalty
of perjury. Randy Robinson
Dear Attorney General Dana Nesssel, this is a case of elder abuse!
And is extremely urgent! A matter of life and death!
My mother Gayle Robinson is an 88-year-old Marine Corps veteran.
She has been abused several times now! Physically, mentally and
fmancially. Wayne County Probate Court, case numbers 2014-797255-GA & 2014-
First by some of my siblings who stole over 100,000 dollars from her home
equity line a credit.
Then by the Westland police Det. R. Thivierge by not investigating the theft
in a timely manor! Then later taking part in her kidnapping, on video.
Then the biggest and worst ABUSE has come at the hands of Wayne
County Probate Court and judge Terrance Keith, GAL Maria Vulaj,
court appointed guardian and conservator, Mary Rowan, and her
assistant Katie MacDonald.
Also Kathy Law current guardian, Rickie Robinson current
conservator, Mary Robinson petitioner, and Linda Robinson (checks).
This is a case of obstruction of justice as well by using the probate court to
stop the investigation of the theft by the Westland police. And the probate
court was all too happy to help!
It should be noted that according to EPIC law, five days before the first
hearing to declare someone incapacitated you must file with the court any
medical proof that a guardian is needed. On the first court date 06/10/2014,
the only medical papers presented to the court was from my mothers doctor
saying she was OK and didn’t need a guardian. Still the GAL and judge
declared my mother incapacitated without any proof! And despite a
doctors report stating my mother didn’t have dementia and was able to
make her own decisions, regarding personal, health and financial
The judge ordered an investigation into the theft of my mother’s money,
to this date none has been done! Again I have confronted the judge about
this and why there is no report done yet, he says nothing and changes the
subject to something else! Again transcripts show this!
When my mom found out about her money being stolen, she demanded they
pay her back, they refused and told her she just forgot she loaned them the
money! And they didn’t owe her anything but rather they owed the bank.
My mother went to her bank to get records about her account, as my sister
Linda Robinson had committed mail fraud by changing the address on the
account to her address. The bank gave my mother statements and cancelled
checks. She found several checks with three different peoples
handwriting on them. After getting no results from her kids to pay the
money back, and the bank telling her they can’t tell her whose bank accounts
thousands was transferred to online. The bank told her to go to the police to
get subpoenas or warrants in order for them to tell who owns the accounts.
My mother then went to the Westland police several times. She finally
meets with Det. Thivierge, during the meeting he told me and my sister
Debbie Fox and my mother. Not to leave mom alone anyone who either
stole money or is trying to convince her they just borrowed the money, as if
they get mom to sign anything or take a payment it would ruin his criminal
case. So from that point one we made sure to not leave my mother alone
with any of them and video record them when they came over. They didn’t
like that as they kept saying, “mom I’ll explain everything to you away from
Randy and Debbie and no cameras.” Well my mother didn’t fall for any of
that. So they soon took her to PROBATE COURT to have her declared
incapacitated. But just two days before filing in probate my two sisters
Kathy Law, Mary Robinson and brother Rickie Robinson, came over
and upset my mother on mothers day 2014. My sister Mary attacked me
in the church parking lot while my sister Kathy filmed on her phone. My
brother Rickie had hit me with his car three times, bumping me; luckily my
then 14-year-old daughter also filmed them on her phone. The two
sisters filed false police reports about me, when the police saw the video
they were both charged with filing false police reports. And pled guilty.
For some unknown reason the police didn’t charge them with assault even
though they said they would.
Soon afterward a lady showed up at the house Maria Vulaj and said she
was a GAL that my sister Kathy Law had filed to be my moms guardian and
conservator. My mother told her she didn’t need or want that, and told her
about the money being stolen. I showed the GAL the video of the attack in
the church parking lot and police reports. She told us, my mother, me, and
Debbie that we didn’t have to show up in court, that they would have
another hearing date after that one, of June 10th 2014, and at that time the
judge would appoint my mother a lawyer, because she was objecting to
everything. She interviewed my mother alone on the front porch.
Then the day before the first court date GAL Maria Vulaj and Det. R
Thivierge came to the house and tried to convince my mother that is was ok
that some of her kids took the money, as they only took it from the bank
not out of her pocket! Luckily I have this recorded too! I have all kinds
of documentation! Police reports, medical reports, bank records, forged
checks, show cause, petitions, motions, court orders, videos of all kinds
of things that have happened, audio recordings, hand written letters
from my mother, court transcripts that show statements from my
mother, perjury, by almost everyone from the GAL to the guardian,
and many of my siblings. I have proof of the perjury also! The perjury
was also pointed out to the judge right after it happened but he does nothing.
My mother has been kidnapped, held against her will in a psych ward,
against a court order that she not be removed. Also the guardian’s
paperwork was expired! So she had no authority to do anything to my
mother! That’s why at first the hospital refused to admit my mother
because my mother refused treatment, and the guardian had no proper
paperwork. Again I have hospital records saying that! They only admitted
her the next day after the guardian made a call to the Doctor that she has a
“relationship” with and has worked with in the past at the hospital. The
transcripts from 10107/2014 show the judge just being mad about his order
not being followed, and ignoring all medical records, even stating that they
were enough to end my mother’s guardianship! But he wasn’t going to
ignore that fact that his order wasn’t followed. He ordered an IME; my
mother went to the doctors of her choice as stated in the paperwork
given to her by the GAL. So this is a case of revenge! Punishing my
mother even with proof that she was ok! My poor mother has been through
HELL! She doesn’t deserve this! Now they are going to sell her home too!
Under value and to someone the GAL found? Strange that the house
never had a for-sale sign in front, but she found a buyer? Also there was
another conservator on the case for about a year, didn’t do much but billed
over 70 thousand! They talked him down to 37 thousand! If his billing
were legit he never would have came down! There has been fraud on the
court, and when it’s pointed out with proof the judge says there no proof!
Also after Mary Rowan cut off the rest of the family from seeing my mother
. they got mad and went to court to have her removed. In the beginning, my
siblings claimed my mother had dementia, this was proven wrong with many
doctors’ reports! Then when they were removing, Mary Rowan. Who had
my mother under lock and key at Maple Manor. They wanted my mother to
live in an independent facility, Mary Rowan said, ” she needs 2417 care she
has dementia!” They all screamed she does not have dementia! Then
Mary Rowan and The GAL said that was the basis for you to start the
guardianship, they pointed it out to the judge! My siblings denied saying
that I pointed it out too. I told the judge just go back and look at the video of
the hearing, it’s all on the record! What kind of judge is he? So the judge
then removes Mary Rowan, and makes my sister Kathy Law my mother’s
guardian! Even though there was a report from Henry Ford Hospital
Neuropsychology Evaluation stating my mother is afraid of Kathy Law,
and does not want to be left alone with her
Since then my mother has told me and just about everyone involved in the
case. That Paul Law attacked her! This is Kathy Law’s husband. I have
this on video, and audio of a phone call, and a hand written letter to the
judge from my mother telling him of this! Now they claim my mother has
dementia again! And that she just thinks Paul Law attacked her. I pointed
out to the judge again how they keep changing that to fit their needs. But
did nothing again! That is perjury!
My sister Debbie and I haven’t been allowed to see my mother for over a
year now! They finally said we could have supervised visits for half an hour
once a month, but cant take pictures, or record in any way. They don’t want
us documenting anything she might tell us! We still have not seen her
though. They also have had her on some very heavy SSRI drugs! Again
medial records state my mother is only suffering from depression caused
by the guardianship! And even recommends it be stopped to prevent
further harm to her mentally, and to help her recover from the damage
already done! So this court and this judge are guilty of Elder Abuse on
I ask for a chance to show all my documentation to the Attorney General’s
I ask for an immediate halt to all court action until investigation is complete.
I would also like to point out that the judge made my brother Rickie
Robinson my mother’s conservator, Rickie Robinson’s wife Judy Robinson
helped set up the line of credit as she worked at the bank National City, now
PNC. Rickie Robinson got a check for 11,000.00 dollars. First claimed it
was a loan then a gift, then his early inheritance. He was ordered to
make timely payment to my mother but refuses to, yet the judge then
makes him the conservator? Also Mary Robinson got a check for
$45,000.00 said she it was a loan from my mother. She said she bought a
HUD house with it then got a loan on the house to fix it up, and was
planning on getting another loan for $90,00000 after it was fixed up and
then pay my mother back, but the bank got bought out and changed
their loan rules. All of that would be bank fraud and fraud on HUD as
So many things WRONG with this case!
I am fighting for my mother’s life at this point! She will be 91 this
November. There has also been fraud against the VA as my sister Kathy
Law filed for and received Aid and Attendance for my mother~ She even
got it retroactive claiming my mother was unable to care for herself, was
wheelchair bound, when I have video of my mother chasing her dog down
the hall of the home they now have her in, she picked up the dog carried her
back to her room without any help from anyone and without a wheelchair,
walker or cane! This case is all fraud! From the beginning and it just
keeps getting worse! I use to live with my mother with my daughter. I had
a very close relationship with my mother, as did my daughter, and my sister
Debbie F ox. The other six siblings had claimed that we were systematically
destroying their relationship with our mother, again without proof of any
kind and my mother telling the judge she didn’t want to have anything to do
with them as they stole her money and now have taken her to probate court.
In reality they have used the probate court to systematically destroy our
relationship with our mother, by asking the court to bar us from even
visiting with her. In the last five years there has been a no contact order
for us, then very limited supervised visitation. Then no visitation after we
tried to report the assault on our mother. In the last five years we have
been denied contact with our mother for three of those years. The judge
ordered four times that we couldn’t file anything for 180 days, so that’s
two full years of not being able to help our mother in anyway! This is
out of control I have been in contact with many others that are having the
same kind of problems with probates court in Michigan and across the
I’m sure you know who April Parks is; well Mary Rowan is her Wayne
County counterpart! This whole system has destroyed thousands of lives!
I have offered more then once to help take care of my mother for FREE in
her home along with my sister Debbie and anyone else in the family that
wants to help. Instead they her in an apartment paying 21,060 a month for
a studio, another 1700 for someone to walk my mother to the dinning
room, shower her and give her meds, this is an independent senior
apartment, not a nursing home or medical facility. So why is she there
when they claim she has dementia? I would also like to point out that on
the first court date my mother did show up and had no lawyer, even
though at the beginning the GAL told the judge he needed to appoint
my mother a lawyer. She had also told my mother she would get a free
lawyer since she was objecting. But the law says you only get a free
lawyer if you’re indigent, says it right on the paperwork when someone
files. Only after the case was over did the GAL tell the judge that he
“FORGOT” to give my mother a lawyer. Then he tells a lawyer sitting at
the back of the courtroom, he tells her you were here you heard everything;
“I don’t have to bring you up to speed.” This is in the transcripts. But
she was talking to her client the whole time I doubt she was paying much
attention to my mother’s case. A good lawyer would have pointed out to the
judge that their now client just had a hearing held without a lawyer, and that
she would need time to meet with my mother and that the hearing that just
took place should be voided. My mother didn’t like that lawyer so we hired
a private one. He soon quit after his retainer ran out. And my mother has
not had a lawyer since! So no lawyer the first hearing, and none for the
next four and a half years! My mother has been denied he due process,
as well as her, “Unalienable Rights to Life Liberty and the pursuit of
Happiness.” Once again I am begging you to put a temporary restraining
order on this court to stop the sale of my mother home, allow her to return
there, get off the SSRI drugs. Then if it is felt it’s necessary to be tested
once again. My mother deserves to be happy! I don’t know how much
longer we will have her around, but I know she’ll only be happy back in her
home, the only home she’s known sine 1956. My mother is supposed to
have the right to pick her own guardian and conservator, she has
repeatedly asked for me, or my sister Debbie Fox to do these duties. The
judge has said that EPIC basically says the family gets to vote on it. Which
is not true, and is how I found out about EPIC law saying you must file five
days before the first hearing any medical proof.
Also the way the judge runs the court room is crazy, he cuts you off, allows
others to cut you off, and most importantly he does not swear people in
properly. They are not identified for the record. So you get transcripts
that say, “unidentified male, unidentified female”, or just “witness” this
makes the transcripts very hard to understand to someone who was not there.
The judge has a huge EGO problem! He likes to quote movie stars and
singers rather the doing the right thing. He has put the fox in charge of the
So many people who have had similar problems with probate courts around
the country have either never gotten to see their loved ones again or if they
were lucky enough to free them only end up dying a short time later.
This court has taken years from my relationship with my mother, as
well as my sister Debbie Fox and my daughter Lynnette Robinson.
Please help time is of the essence! This isn’t everything, just the tip of the
Thank you for you for considering this case for prosecution of all parties invovled on the grounds of elder abuse and financial exploitation.
Randy Robinson, son and interested party.
All of the theft should also be reported to the IRS because there are fees, fines and penalties on criminal income of 2% per month for not reporting and for not filing a tax return and paying income tax on it. The tax rate for crime is a flat 50% so in just 24 months, the perp will owe the entire amount to the IRS.
Next the administration of psych drugs is illegal and should be reported to the Mich. agency that licenses doctors and nurses and you need to have all of them delicensed. There is a CFR on this. Psych drugs, including SSRIs are contraindicated for dementia and they only make it worse. These drugs are typically used as chemical restraints. I believe there was no evidence your mom was depressed at the time these were prescribed.
You did a great job on the letter. File complaints against the lawyers and judges involved too for they should be delicensed.
