In Guardianships We Distrust: Today Is CONSERVATORSHIP & GUARDIANSHIP ABUSE AWARENESS DAY
Garden City Park, NY: Today (February 1, 2023) is CONSERVATORSHIP AND GUARDIANSHIP ABUSE AWARENESS DAY here in the US. Despite an ever-growing tide of attention being thrust its way, the unjust occurrence of corrupt court-appointed guardianships in this country—especially as it applies to our elderly population—continues over and over to traumatize families and filch fortunes from coast to coast.
One such case involves a Nevada man named Roger Hillygus, who according to a KOLO-TV news report was arrested in Kansas City, Missouri and put in a Nevada jail last October for “kidnapp[ing] his mother, 80-year-old Susan Hillygus, from a Reno care facility without permission in 2019.” In addition, a former local sheriff named Stewart Handte was arrested for his alleged role in helping Hillygus liberate his mother from guardianship abuse. Sadly, Ms. Hillygus—who suffered with Alzheimer’s disease—passed away on October 16, 2019.
The story of Roger Hillygus, however, is only one of thousands nationwide—for far too many, the problem of corrupt guardianship of the elderly in the US remains largely unsolvable.
Among those who wish to bring an end to corrupt probate guardianship is the Florida-based licensed physician Dr. Sam Sugar, founder of the nonprofit organization Americans Against Abusive Probate Guardianship and author of Guardianships and the Elderly: The Perfect Crime ($19.95 USD, ISBN: 978-0-7570-0433-9).
Later today, Dr. Sugar will be one of ninety already on the guest roster for a special one-time ZOOM event dedicated to CONSERVATORSHIP AND GUARDIANSHIP ABUSE AWARENESS DAY. This ZOOM event is scheduled to run today from 3:00pm to 4:30pm ET (12:00pm to 1:30pm PT), and folks can register to attend it through the following link:
Dr. Sugar's book is available through Amazon, and everywhere else that books are sold. To speak with or interview Dr. Sugar about this ongoing miscarriage of justice in our nation, please contact Anthony Pomes by email (SQ1marketing@aol.com) or by calling 516-535-2010.
