Probate elder abuse in Cook County is a continuing issue. The courts are corrupt and deny the elderly their human rights on a regular basis.
Mary G Sykes, a 92 year old woman is just one example.
While she stood in open court and wanted to tell the judge she wanted to return home with her daughter Gloria J Sykes, she was denied this right. She was repeatedly denied the right to an attorney by the court. Her GAL's only listened to one party--Carolyn Toerpe and the entire procedure was railroaded. Gloria was denied the right to be her guardian--even though she lovingly cared for her for 10+ years in Mary's own home. Carolyn, who had little contact and rarely took her mother was awarded Plenary Guardianship in a railroaded proceeding.
SIGN THE PETITION to Return Mary G Sykes Home and to Remove Carolyn Toerpe as Plenary Guardian
