Linda Kincaid Reports: Elder Abuse by Monterey County Public Guardian: Home Vacant, Daughter Homeless

An abusive conservatorship devastated the life of San Francisco resident Margarita Zelada.  The Monterey County Public Guardian keeps Margarita unlawfully isolated and confined in a long-term care facility.
 

Margarita said, “ I am in prison.” Every night, she cries alone in her room and prays for freedom.

 
Margarita languishes at Senior Paradise in Del Rey Oaks, her estate charged $7,000/month for “care.”
 
Margarita’s three bedroom home in San Francisco’s desirable Outer Sunset neighborhood sits vacant.
 
Deputy Public Guardian Jennifer Empasis changed the locks on Margarita’s home to prevent entry by family. The home is unattended, and landscaping deteriorates. Family said Empasis planned to sell the home for a fraction of market value.
 
The abusive conservatorship also devastated the life of Margarita’s daughter, Patricia Conklin. In her bid to control Margarita’s $1.5M estate, Empasis made many false allegations that Patricia abused her mother.
 
Empasis seized control of Patricia’s assets and the house she leased in Pacific Grove. Empasis unlawfully forced Patricia’s renter from the house and terminated the lease.
 
Margarita’s testimony was suppressed at Patricia’s trial. Material documents and videos were suppressed. Empasis threatened witnesses with criminal prosecution if they testified in Patricia’s favor.
 
With assets seized by the Public Guardian, Patricia could not retain competent defense counsel. She was found guilty on three counts of felony elder abuse.
 
Patricia is left homeless and dependent on the charity of friends.

    CA may well be the worst place in the U.S. to retire to.Their probate code allows unconstitutional evictions – TOTALLY WITHOUT DUE PROCESS OF LAW!

    You may just be right, Thelma. The big question is why doesn't Monterey County take this guardian to task?

    There needs to be oversight on public guardians and also somewhere to go to complain. They have too much unbridled power and when there's a bad one, like Empasis, look at the devastation they can cause.
