Until he died last month at age 82, Don Esco of Cameron Park had his own way of measuring the passage of time: by the years, months and days since the death of his wife, Johnnie, after a short stay at a Placerville nursing home.
It was never enough, he always said, to settle a civil lawsuit with the El Dorado Care Center in Placerville, which he blamed for his 77-year-old wife's death in March 2008. No, he said, it was never about the money.
Johnnie's death, he maintained, was a criminal matter...
From what I understand about the California Attorney General's Office, the Governor and a lot of other law enforcement offices, agencies... prosecuting elder abuse, financial elder abuse is not what they do!
