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?
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.
