Brief Interlude

I will wrap up Wells Fargo in the next day or so.  I did want to share a conversation I had with a female inmate currently incarcerated in North Las Vegas.

A bit of explanation:

In  June of 2010, a former Washoe County guardian was sentenced to 20 years in prison for embezzling nearly $300,000 from her elderly wards.  This woman had a gambling problem, as well as other issues.

The woman I spoke with this evening has also been convicted of elder financial abuse.  I have listened to her situation, done research in the courthouse on her case.  There is compelling data to show that she is being railroaded.

I don’t pretend to be a journalist, but I want stories outside of my own experience to be verified as much as humanly possible.  The questions I ask myself are:

Do I find it possible that the Reno elder care system would seek an elder victim story to deflect embarrassment about one of their own?

I do.

Is there evidence of a legal system that protects its own?

Hmm, Darren Mack called his old friends at the D.A.’s office in order to use influence.  So, yes.

Do I believe this person is innocent?

I don’t know.  I’ll have to peek under some slimy rocks, and it may take some time.  I will post my results.

Just wanted to let you all know.

And please, contact me with your own stories.  I’ll keep them anonymous unless you tell me  otherwise.
