Description

Rhode Island has one of the nation's highest elderly populations, and a special unit in the state Attorney General's office dedicated to prosecuting elder abuse. But over 17 years, fewer than half of those charged were convicted of this felony, and only 13 percent served any prison time. The reasons are many, the solutions a challenge -- but there are jurisdictions that do this better.
