Summary of article:
Deputy Attorney General Mark Zahner, chief of prosecutions for California Attorney General Kamala Harris’ Department of Justice, is stepping down amid sharp criticism that he has selectively enforced the state’s criminal elder abuse laws, Penal Code § 368, against vulnerable small-fry defendants while sparing wealthy, politically connected nursing home owners.
Outline of article:
Mark Zahner, chief elder abuse prosecutor for California DOJ’s Bureau of Medi-Cal Fraud and Elder Abuse (BMFEA), is leaving office amid criticism of selective, biased enforcement.
Patients’ rights advocates have criticized Mark Zahner’s office and the BMFEA for failing to prosecute criminal elder abuse.
Mark Zahner is leaving a dismal legacy as California DOJ’s chief elder abuse prosecutor, alleges Elder Abuse Exposed.com.
Is Mark Zahner suitable to lead an association of district attorneys in California?
Soon-to-be-published source documents regarding a 2011 nursing home death case that Mark Zahner rejected in 2012, despite a DOJ BMFEA special agent’s recommendation to prosecute, will expose how California elder abuse victims are “victimized twice.”
The soon-to-be-published source documents will also expose why U.S. Senator Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) has called the nursing home inspection and enforcement process “broken” and “seriously corrupted.”
