Keep this Tip Sheet handy: Learn to recognize the signs of Elder Abuse



Recognizing abuse, which occurs across all socio-economic levels, is vital to protecting the ever-increasing number of seniors.


  • Watch for a sudden appearance of physical injuries such as bruises and sprains
  • Stay alert to a change in finances
  • Identify changes in behaviour or appearance
  • Watch for 'new' suspicious relationships
  • Any of the above could be signs of abuse. In an emergency situation, it's crucial to immediately call the police.


According to the Advocacy Centre for the Elderly (ACE), elder abuse includes:


  • Physical abuse such as slapping, pushing, beating or forced confinement
  • Financial abuse such as stealing, fraud, extortion or misusing a power of attorney
  • Sexual abuse as sexual assault or any unwanted form of sexual activity
  • Neglect as failing to give an older person in your care food, medical attention, or other necessary care or abandoning an older person in your care
  • Emotional abuse such as treating an older person like a child or humiliating, insulting, frightening, threatening or ignoring an older person

EXPECT ELDER ABUSE TO BECOME MORE COMMON, MORE PREVALENT


Elder abuse experts: Expect more cases like this one in Bethesda

To Montgomery County detectives, the care that James Kirkland provided to his 87-year-old mother — who had pressure ulcers so severe that her spine was exposed — amounted to felony abuse of a vulnerable adult.

According to arrest records, Kirkland’s mother arrived by ambulance at Suburban Hospital on Friday. She was found to have large pressure ulcers on her back and legs. Social workers and detectives were summoned.

“Hospital staff stated these wounds were packed with newspaper and a powdery substance,” police wrote in charging documents. “When the staff removed the newspaper from the area, the victim’s spine could be seen. Furthermore, on both of [the victim’s] feet were compression socks that were on her for such a long period of time that they were fused to her feet. Both socks had to be removed surgically.”

How does one charge their mother for rent, food and utilities after she's had a stroke?


We don't know, you'd need to ask him.  Keep in mind, dude had all of his mother's resources at his disposal.  Dude did not have an agreement with anyone written or otherwise to be paid or reimbursed for voluntarily taking care of his mother!!!
Now this:
Homeless man in shed illustrates Charlotte’s toughest cases






[snip]
“She’s an African-American woman, educated and works a 9-to-5 job in the corporate sector. He’s an older white male with limited education, who grew up impoverished,” she said. “Their friendship seems to erase lines between race, class and gender in a way that is powerful.”
Pierce and Robinson first met when she was attending church at Community Outreach Christian Ministries, which was then working with the Harvest Center to house up to 20 homeless people. Pierce was in that housing program, but he was kicked out five times because of his drinking, she says.
“There is something about Bear, an almost childlike innocence that makes you want to help him,” she says. “That innocence got him taken advantage of a lot on the streets.”
Robinson’s friends say she has a reputation for bold acts of kindness, but many were surprised to learn she was allowing a homeless man to live on her property.

List of Attorneys, LASC BP099211; BP118616; BP122665; BP135381


Steven A. Fuller's attorneys are in blue.

They were brought on board as a result of the actions of Steven A. Fuller in order to obtain MONEY! from his mother, Edwina J. Fuller and his step-father Thelsey L. Fuller.

Steven A. Fuller had 15 months to depose or have Thelsey L. Fuller placed on the witness-stand which he and his attorney, Sandra Jones Anderson at the time, failed to perform.

It must be noted that Steven A. Fuller desired and attempted to remove Atty. Tala R. Davis as Successor Trustee of the Thelsey L. Fuller Trust because she wouldn't do what he wanted her to do.

Atty. Barnitt and Atty. Fitzgerald assisted in the selling of 1916 N. Belhaven Ave below fair market value while Atty. Barnitt was the Successor Trustee. 

That Steven A. Fuller consulted with Atty. Randall on how to remove Atty. Barnitt being that he was not moving fast enough to sell 8625 S. 12th Ave below far market value.


















That was thwarted by a complaint against Atty. Barnitt and Atty. Fitzgerald with the California State Bar.

A complaint with the California State Bar has been filed against Teddie J. Randall for his actions, in-actions and omissions. 

The real estate was sold that the various attorneys of Steven Fuller AKA Steven A. Fuller could be paid and so that Steven A. Fuller could realize a pecuniary advantage over his siblings.

$107.692.30 belonging to the Estate of Edwina J. Fuller has not been accounted for by Steven A. Fuller or his attorney, Teddie J. Randall.

Ten Thousand More Potential Victims a Day, says Prosecutor
















As more of America’s “Baby Boomers” turn 65, the problem of senior citizen abuse in all its forms becomes a greater concern, Gloucester County Prosecutor Sean F. Dalton told a group of 60 law enforcement, health care and financial services officials and advocates for the elderly.
“This problem is only going to increase as Baby Boomers (born 1946-1964) become senior citizens,” Prosecutor Dalton said in a meeting at Auletto Caterers in Deptford NJ. “There’s ten thousand people a day who reach the age of 65 in the United States, and that trend will continue for the next 15 years.
“As a result, we need to focus more on this problem. It’s very similar to the issue of domestic violence or child abuse maybe 30 years ago, when it was looked upon as more of a family problem. Now it’s recognized for the crime that it is. I think elder abuse is going to be viewed similarly in the days to come.”
Generally, elder abuse is a challenging crime to prosecute because of the nature of the victim, Dalton said. “You’re typically dealing with an individual who has diminished capacity, which makes them especially vulnerable to be victimized.”
The risks to seniors come not only from con men who are strangers, but also from trusted people in their own homes, said Prosecutor Dalton.
“We certainly aren’t surprised by the number of scam artists, but the number of caregivers and relatives who engage in this despicable behavior is really terrible.”

MONEY! MONEY! MONEY! .... MONEY!


King James Bible

For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.



Now the question begs....

How does one charge their mother for anything?

Ea$y, wait until she dies and file a unsubstantiated creditor's claim against her estate then pull the amount that you want out of thin air.

Keep in mind, that you had what little MONEY! she had at your disposal and used it how you saw fit while she was alive.

Yeah, and tax payers paid you to take care of her too via in home care services.

Why should you care?

You don't, you're a swindler.

OBJECTIONS

1. That the accounting is fatally flawed in that the Estate of Thelsey L. Fuller, [LASC Case No. BP 122 665], via Atty. Tala R. Davis as Successor Trustee of the Thelsey L. Fuller Trust paid $107,692.30 to the Estate of Edwina Fuller with a certified cashier’s check  #000250402 from Comerica Bank dated 09/29/2014 to Steven Fuller as conservator of the estate and person of Edwina Fuller and has not been accounted for.

ESTATE FRAUDS ! ! !

After Lying and Embezzling from Her Mother’s Estate, Daughter is Jailed

Be Alert for Warning Signs

If You Suspect Fraud

If you are the beneficiary of an estate and think the executor is being dishonest, there are several steps you can take.
Consider getting an independent opinion from a probate lawyer who’s not involved in the estate. The attorney can review the last will and testament, probate court filings and any correspondence you’ve had with the executor in an effort to determine whether something is amiss.
Your lawyer can also take your concerns and available evidence to the probate court that’s overseeing the estate or local law enforcement authorities. After they review the evidence, they may decide to take legal action. This could include issuing a court order that requires or forbids the executor from performing certain actions, removing the executor and appointing a replacement, or filing criminal charges.
Regardless of the probate court or law enforcement’s actions, you may also have grounds for a civil lawsuit against the executor. Your probate lawyer can review your situation and tell you if this is a viable option.

Fraud

Sometimes fraud concerning a will or estate isn't discovered until after probate has closed. While the case could be reopened in probate court and a plaintiff could then sue for fraud or undue influence, another remedy, the tortious interference with an expectancy of an inheritance or a gift, has some advantages over a will contest:
Not only is the statute of limitations generally longer for tort actions, but the running of the statute doesn't begin until the discovery of the tort or when it should have been discovered, whereas the statute of limitations for will contests starts when the testator dies.
The tort challenge will not fall under no-contest clauses, since a tort challenge is an in personam action against the tortfeasor but a will contest is an in rem action against the probate estate; hence, a tort action is not considered a will contest, so that if the challenger were a beneficiary under the will that had a no-contest clause, then he would still receive the property even if he loses the tort suit. (If the challenger is not a beneficiary under the will, then he has nothing to lose from a no-contest clause.)
The tort action may be the only remedy available to someone who is neither an intestate heir or beneficiary under the will, since only plaintiffs with a financial stake under the will or intestacy will have legal standing in a will contest.
Because the tort action is in personam, the tortfeasor is personally liable for damages, so the plaintiff can still recover even if the probate property is not available. Furthermore, the successful plaintiff in a tort action can recover pre-judgment interest, attorney's fees, and punitive damages—none of which are recoverable in a will contest.
A lower standard of proof is required. Because the testator is dead, will contests require clear and convincing evidence while a tort action only requires a preponderance of the evidence.
HOW TO HELP SPOT A FRAUDULENT WILL
(AND OTHER FORMS OF ESTATE THEFT)

First, the only direct witness is usually dead by the time the theft is discovered. Young and healthy people are rarely targeted for estate theft. Unfortunately, the terminally ill and elderly are typical targets. They are the most vulnerable and the expected payoff is not far off. Stealing from a person who is physically and mentally weak is far easier than a person with all their faculties and health.

Second, estate theft is often undetected. As stated above, the only direct victim is usually dead by the time the theft is discovered. A case for estate theft is often made out entirely by circumstantial evidence. The family of the deceased victim often accepts an inexplicable/illogical estate plan as “Mom’s wishes”. The family does not know what to look for or how to properly investigate potential theft.

Third, estate theft is almost never prosecuted. The legal burden of “beyond a reasonable doubt” for a criminal conviction is nearly impossible to prove in estate theft cases. Prosecutors often have no choice but to rely on the civil justice system to remedy the theft. Without the threat prosecution, thieves have little deterrent. The Brooke Astor case is a very high profile, but rare, example of criminal charges being filed in a case of alleged estate theft.

Robin Williams’ wife, children head to court in estate fight



- Associated Press - Monday, March 30, 2015

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Attorneys for Robin Williams‘ wife and children are headed to court in their battle over the late comedian’s estate.
The attorneys are scheduled to appear before a San Francisco probate judge on Monday, as they argue over who should get clothes and other personal items the actor kept at one his Northern California homes.
In papers filed in December, Williams‘ wife, Susan, says some of the late actor’s personal items were taken without her permission.

Misappropriation [Embezzlement] of Estate Assets - $107,692.30


SUPERIOR COURT OF THE STATE CALIFORNIA FOR THE COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES

In Re the Estate of EDWINA FULLER CASE NO. BP 135381


It is alleged that $107,692.30 was misappropriated from the Estate of Edwina J. Fuller by Steven A. Fuller with the assistance of Atty. Teddie J. Randall.

Edwina J. Fuller passed away on 02 June 2012, her conservatorship ended upon her death and thus became "the Estate of Edwina J. Fuller" and subject to California Probate Code.

$107,692.30 was paid to the Estate of Edwina J. Fuller on 29 September 2014 by Atty. Tala R. Davis in her capacity as Successor Trustee of the Thelsey L. Fuller Trust and from the Estate of Thelsey L. Fuller [LASC Case# BP 122 665] by Comerica Bank check #000250402 to Mr. Steven A. Fuller. 

No accounting has been made to the court in regards to the $107,692.30 received by Mr. Steven A. Fuller in connection with the court cases:

LASC Case# BP 099 211 Fuller, Edwina - Conservatorship 

LASC Case# BP 135 381 Fuller, Edwina - Decedent

Click on image to enlarge
























But, instead those monies have been excluded from any accounting filed by Atty. Teddie J. Randall and his client Mr. Steven A. Fuller with the court in regards to the Estate of Edwina J. Fuller and or the cases cited above.



That these monies were taken without being reported to the court, without the consent of the court and without the oversight of the court constitutes fraud and financial elder abuse against the beneficiaries of the Estate of Edwina J. Fuller.

Shirley Ritchey, daughter
Sandra Arnold, daughter
Robert Fuller, son
Doris Fuller, daughter

That those monies have been embezzled and fraudulently converted is a violation of statutory law.

It is further alleged that Steven A. Fuller owes each beneficiary $21,538.46, their portion of the $107,692.30 paid to the Estate of Edwina J. Fuller by the Estate of Thelsey L. Fuller. That California Probate Law should have been applied by the court before any monies were distributed or confiscated by Steven A. Fuller and or any of his attorneys.

Three Score Ten


Elder Abuse, Financial Elder Abuse, Fraud, Undue Influence, Theft.... at or near or even long before 70-years-old that's when it's likely happen to you.

Three score ten is all that is promised to us according to King James.


1. What is elder abuse?

It is the neglect, exploitation or “painful or harmful” mistreatment of anyone who is 65 or older (or anyone aged 18 to 64 who falls under the legal definition of a “dependent” adult). It can involve physical violence, psychological abuse, isolation, abandonment, abduction, false imprisonment or a caregiver’s neglect. It could also involve the unlawful taking of a senior’s money or property.

In short, elder abuse involves various crimes, such as theft, assault or identity theft, that strike victims of all ages. But when the victim is 65 years old or older (or a dependent adult), the criminal could face stiffer penalties.
For the most part we treat our elders worst than we treat beat up old automobiles.






When the story below first broke, "This Ain't No Game Show" was on top of it:



Two charged with felony elder abuse in abandoned Castro Valley care home case

"The owner and a top administrator who are accused of abandoning elderly and mentally ill residents in a Castro Valley senior home in 2013 without proper staffing or care for two days have been charged with felony elder abuse and could face up to 17 years in prison if convicted, officials said Monday."

"E What happened to Cadillac inventoried at $3500"

Cadillac is not running and is worth $800.00 if that much. 

The steering box is gone, paint and vinyl top are shot as well, it has an electrical short that drains the battery and in order to start the vehicle, start fluid must be sprayed into the carburetor.

The vehicle was set to be junked by the trustee, Tala R. Davis.

Shirley, Sandra, Robert and Steven wanted me to have the vehicle.

Said vehicle is in York, SC, I had it shipped here.

Doris has refused to turn over the title.... she's a bitch.

If the vehicle was on a US naval vessel it would be the anchor.

The bigger concern is what happened to the contents of 8625 S. 12th Ave, Inglewood, CA 90305 after it was sold.

Why weren't the antiques and the other contents of the home inventoried but, instead carted off somewhere by unknown persons hired by Trustee Davis after she sold the home?

Elder Abuse, Financial Elder Abuse, Murder, Bedsores...


It wasn’t until a month after her father died that Linda Magel discovered something awry.

Sifting through boxes of bank statements, she realized $118,000 of her father’s life savings was missing, withdrawn from a Chase Bank branch her father had never stepped foot in.

After a months-long investigation, it became clear that John “Jack” Magel, a Livermore resident who suffered from dementia and early onset Alzheimer’s disease, had been swindled by a bank employee, who made off with a certificate of deposit worth $105,000 and other withdrawals using forged signatures. Magel, who wanted to pass the money to his heirs, died from cancer and Alzheimer’s in March at age 91.

A Grayridge man is in custody after allegedly abusing his mother and holding a gun to her head.

Michael Davis, 40, of Grayridge, was arrested Monday after a domestic assault call to the Stoddard County Sheriff's Department concerning an altercation Davis had with his mother, according to a police report. It was allegedly during that assault Davis had put a gun to her head.

The Prunedale man accused of killing his father and keeping the decomposed body hidden made an initial court appearance, but did not enter a plea to charges of murder and elder abuse.
Defense attorney Scott Erdbacher asked the arraignment of Matthew Roberts, 34, on charges in the death of 70-year-old Jerry Roberts, be continued to March 5. Monterey Superior Court Judge Marla Anderson granted the request. It was not immediately clear if Erdbacher will remain as Roberts' attorney; he told Anderson he was there by special appearance.

For some time researchers, including those under the aegis of the U.S. government, have estimated the extent of losses to seniors each year from financial abuse to be $2.9B per year.  A new study by True Link, a private financial services company, concludes that the actual figure is over twelve times previous estimates, or $36.48 billion each year.

What gives the study credibility to me is certainly not that it was sponsored by a financial services organization that wants you to buy its online protection tools. Rather, it’s that according to their report, the design of this survey was guided by recommendations of an expert panel of fraud researchers convened by the Financial Fraud Research Center at the Stanford Center on Longevity.

Every research study I have read on elder abuse, which includes hundreds of pages reflecting years of data collected tells us that most cases of financial elder abuse are not reported.
http://www.forbes.com/sites/carolynrosenblatt/2015/01/29/have-we-grossly-underestimated-the-extent-of-financial-elder-abuse/



A case of alleged elder abuse in west St. Louis County is bringing attention to a problem that experts say is getting worse.

Fifty-six-year-old Timothy Barnes is charged with abusing his 82-year-old mother. Court documents show Barnes is accused of allowing his mother to live in total decay, among mold, feces, and broken glass. Police say she was deprived of food and clean water. And, the documents say she'd been bed-ridden for a year, and hadn't bathed in six months. Those documents also say the victim's other son would try and help, but Barnes would threaten him.

Experts say similar cases of alleged abuse go unreported all the time.

"It can be very devastating, to know that someone is either being treated like that, or has been treated in a manner that is inappropriate," said Donna Jasper, a social worker at the Mid-East Area Agency on Aging in St. Louis County.

Jasper has been in the business for 20 years. While she says abuse cases are 'not the norm,' even one case is too many.

"Primarily when you think about the frail senior adults that are most at risk, and someone can put them in such a situation that would cause them harm," said Jasper.

"They do it because the person is vulnerable, and they're not able to fight back unfortunately," said Mary Schaefer, executive director of the Mid-East Area Agency on Aging.

A former social worker with the Alabama Department of Human Resources pleaded guilty Monday to allegations that she abused her elderly, mentally handicapped brother, according to court records.

Yolanda Genean Thurman, 43, entered a blind plea to one count of elder abuse and neglect on the same day jurors gathered to be chosen for her trial.

The plea means Thurman could face as many as 20 years in the penitentiary.

Mobile County deputies arrested Thurman on May 21, 2013, after her brother, 74-year-old Byrd Bunkley Jr., was found covered in bed sores and malnourished while laying in his own feces, according to investigators. Thurman was her brother's caregiver. Bunkley requires round-the-clock care.

Mobile County District Attorney Ashley Rich said Bunkley's condition was so poor when deputies found him that some of his bedsores required skin grafts.
