Protecting the Elderly

Dear Senator Brownsberger, Chair of the Joint Committee on the Judiciary,

Marti Oakley who has been hosting an internet radio show for about eight years devoted mostly to elder abuse posted an open letter to AG Jeff Sessions. I think this letter could just as well be posted to state Legislatures that make the laws governing how the Probate Court functions. I have copied a list of questions from that letter below.

What, if anything, is the Joint Committee on the Judiciary doing to address the questions posed by Marti Oakley?

An Open Letter to AG Jeff Sessions: Will you protect the elderly from professional predators?

Posted: 26 May 2018 11:00 PM PDT

Maybe you could explain to me:

  • How the living, breathing human being is forced to suffer a statutory civil death, equal in its legal consequences to a physical death, and then:
  • have their identity taken from them and assigned to a known predator, who now assumes and presents themselves as the victim, along with all their assets?
  • Why is it that in these tribunals, the rules of evidence do not have to be adhered to?
  • Why does the code of civil procedure not apply?
  • Why is due process never adhered to?
  • Why are ex parte hearings allowed to occur without notice to the family or the victim?
  • Why are these professional predators allowed to levy charges of all kinds against the victim and the family and friends without ever producing any evidence that the charges are in fact valid?
  • Why are they never asked for such evidence?
  • Why is no evidence allowed to be entered into the record of the tribunal refuting the claims of the predators?
  • And why is the victim forced to pay for the actions brought against them when no crime has been committed, there is no injured party and no damage to property that the predator does not own or have an interest in….yet.

  1. Hi David,

    The legislative response on this from my committee has been to report a bill creating a task force to develop a solution. Hopefully, that bill will proceed through the process and the group will get started. We will see.

  2. Yes… a task force. That should effectively stall this out for years. Why a task force would need to be assembled is beyond me. There is SO MUCH EVIDENCE out there now about this corrupt system of human trafficking for profit that state legislatures should have acted long ago to halt it. But that’s not going to happen in any state, is it!
