More than 60,000 Ohioans with court-appointed guardians were neglected or worse during the past decade. Some saw their assets stolen. Some were physically abused. All were victims of unscrupulous guardians and a broken system that purports to protect them. Lack of urgency by the Ohio Supreme Court, Ohio Attorney General, lawmakers and probate court judges to ensure basic safeguards allowed these people - some of society's most vulnerable - to become victims. Frustrated families were angry and ashamed as they watched their loved ones die without money or dignity. So-called guardians drained a public servant's life savings, took family mementos from a grandmother planning to give them to her children and stole paychecks from a young man who is developmentally disabled.
