Widely Ignored Crime - ELDER ABUSE

The “Dirty Little Secret” of Elder Abuse

March 28, 2013 07:45:24 am
Americans aged 65 and older are the nation’s fastest growing demographic group, according to the 2010 U.S. Census.  And although crimes committed against the elderly are increasingly a matter of concern, advocates say too little is being done to address the problem.
“It’s the dirty little secret no one wants to talk about,” said Robyn Grant, public policy and advocacy director for the National Consumer Voice for Quality Long-Term Care in Washington, D.C.
“We’ve got to give it the attention that child abuse and domestic abuse are given in this country.”
In interviews with The Crime Report, experts said one of the key obstacles to dealing with the broad variety of crimes that affect the elderly—ranging from financial fraud to sexual, mental and physical abuse—is the lack of coordination between law enforcement and medical and social service professionals who work with the aged population.  
But this may be changing.
A handful of “elder abuse forensic centers” around the country are pioneering an innovative approach that brings together police, social workers, geriatricians, accountants, psychologists and others who previously tackled the issue from the separate perspectives of their fields.
“By collaborating, we can come up with strategies to really deal with the cases in a more focused way,” says Los Angeles County prosecutor Belle Chen, who supervises the elder abuse unit of the Los Angeles district attorney’s office.
Knowing what I know and seeing what happened in my own family and the response from all of the authorities responsible for responding to criminal elder abuse, criminal financial elder abuse along with the non-response of the DA's office as to combat elder abuse... it's HOGWASH!
They told us to seek a civil remedy.  

It must be noted that the abusers were ordered by the court to repay the Estate of Thelsey L. Fuller in excess of $235,000.00 of which over $107,000.00 belongs to the Estate of Edwina J. Fuller and to turn over all of the real estate and other property belonging to Thelsey L. Fuller over to the Court appointed administrator... which they have failed to perform to this day.  
But, instead Robert L. Fuller and Doris A. Fuller a.k.a. Doris Fuller Stewart have hired new attorneys [Daniel Lak must be running scared] to appeal and object.  Taking further control of the real estate, letting Thelsey's real estate to other, they have continued to disobey or comply with the orders of the Court to this day.  They have also failed to post a bond in order to appeal their judgement but, that hasn't stopped their appeal from moving forward.

Just because the victims have died – Mr.Thelsey L. Fuller and Mrs. Edwina J. Fuller – does not mean that their abusers... Robert L. Fuller, Doris A. Fuller, Daniel K. Lak  & Others should not be brought to Justice.  

As of this writing no criminal charges have been filed.

    We believe that the evidence supports that Robert Lewis Fuller, Doris Aleda Fuller, Daniel Kristoff Lak et al. may have committed the following felony violations:

    (1) Violation of CALIFORNIA PENAL CODE SECTION 368-368.5 Special Crimes Against Elders [Criminal Elder Abuse]

    (2) Violation of CALIFORNIA PENAL CODE SECTION 487 Grand Theft

    (3) Violation of CALIFORNIA PENAL CODE SECTION 506 Embezzlement

    (4) Violation of CALIFORNIA PENAL CODE SECTION 118 Perjury

    (5) Violation of CALIFORNIA PENAL CODE SECTION 470-483.5 Forgery, Fraud, Defraud, Corruption of Records.

    (6) Violations of various other CALIFORNIA PENAL & CIVIL CODES

    "Of all the illegal and illicit enterprises in the world, elder exploitation is among the safest and most profitable."

    The above named individuals have yet to be charged, they conspired and stole over $308,000.00 and several real estate properties.

    Criminal Elder Abuse, Criminal Financial Elder Abuse, Fraud, Undue Influence, Theft, etc.
