Report: Legal guardian system fails many Ohioans

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The court-appointed guardian system created to help Ohio's elderly and mentally disabled residents and children has failed many it serves and allows unscrupulous guardians to rob their wards of freedom, dignity and money, a newspaper reported Sunday.

The newspaper's investigation of the system that controls the lives of about 65,000 Ohioans found that even judges overseeing the system say it is broken, The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1o40nos ) reported.

Ohio's system has ripped apart families, rendered the mentally ill voiceless, and left some elderly Ohioans dying penniless in nursing homes, according to the newspaper.

Probate judges in Ohio's 88 counties direct the system without detailed state guidelines and often amid overloaded court dockets. The Dispatch's yearlong investigation showed some lawyers appointed as guardians have been allowed to ignore elderly and mentally ill people while placing them in the lowest-rated nursing home and some lawyers have billed wards for thousands of dollars in questionable legal fees for routine tasks such as paying utility bills.
