“It’s a nasty business”: Florida judge ends 7-year conservatorship of man with "dementia"


Recommended Posts

Quote

A retired engineer who spent seven years in guardianship after being diagnosed with frontal lobe dementia has had all his rights restored by a judge who found no evidence he “lacks the capacity to make his own decisions and care for himself.”

A different judge determined Doug Keegan was incapacitated, stripped away his rights and put him under the care of a professional guardian in 2014.

Keegan’s family hired an attorney after they became concerned about his heavy drinking and objected to his marriage to a woman from Kenya, who they alleged was exploiting him.

Both Keegan and his ex-wife deny that was true.

After trying to get his rights restored for years, Keegan finally prevailed and is speaking out about what he considers serious flaws in Florida’s court-appointed guardianship system.

“Let’s shine a light on it and let’s stop it. It’s a nasty business,” Keegan said.

Keegan said he had never heard of guardianship before a stranger showed up at his condo to evaluate his mental health.

“All of the sudden, they’re coming into your house and they’re walking off with everything you own,” Keegan said.

Keegan lived for seven years under the control of professional guardians and their attorneys.

Guardians and attorneys are paid from the assets of those under their care.

Simply disgusting system.

Basically family members who don't agree with your way of life or decisions you've made, can claim you're disabled and strip you away from your freedom yet still have access to your finances, and pay a legion a leeches. Ugh. Sound familiar?

So glad for Doug who recovered his rights and freedom, and his money. So basically conservatorship corruption is very much real and alive, yet it CAN be undone with the right honest judges, lawyers and doctors. I'm so happy that the #FreeBritney movement is strong, putting so much pressure on all the parties involved and stil receiving so much attention from the mainstream media. We can't give up, y'all! We keep fighting!

Britney's case will set  a huge precedent, I think you'll be okay.

I’m now scared of a conservatorship myself. How crazy is this, should I hire an attorney just in case?

Exactly! Even if Britney was spending $700,000 a month in 2007, ******* let her! She has consistently earned well over $30m a year every year since 1999, usually over $50m! $700k a month for a year is les than $9m a year! She can afford it! She deserves it!

Exacy. I ahte when Karen's put an excuse she will blew her money away and will leave her kids penniless. Like who the **** cares. Let them work for their money. It's her duty to help them till they are 18 and trough collage. 

Plus Britney will never be completely broke. She can live a nice life based on royalties alone.

Another thing that people need to know as they get older is that certain states will seize property as payback for government assistance for the elderly's medical bills (such as if they had Medicaid during a rest home stay up until they are deceased). If you have ageing parents, inform yourselves on your state's laws.

Just read the full article and it's crazy scary how similar their stories are :decisions_britney_thinking_confused_focusing_unsure_xfactor_bw_black_white:

So basically Britney went through an emotional crisis in her 20's and spent huge sums of money, like crazy tons of money. Her father watched in horror.... because he feared she'd go broke and of course, their precious cash cow would dry off. Enter Loucifer, she adviced Colon Spears and both waited for the right time. Britney had that meltdown at K-Fat's house (allegedly, maybe it was a setup and he pissed her off on purpose???) That would explain why the paramedics were so suspiciously rude to Lynne and threatened her if she came near Britney. The conservatorship was put in place, they told Britney it would only be temporary. The conservatorship proved to be a profitable business, they bought off everyone involved, doctors, experts, judges, etc., even her court appointed lawyer. At the same time, they threatened Britney and told her she would never see her boys again if she didn't comply. Britney had to accept the new rules. They brainwashed her with her doctors, Britney developed some kind of Stockholm syndrome she loves her family but at the same time, knows it's wrong and gets very anxious socially and some days she feels like not doing anything that will earn profit. Hence her "off days" in Vegas, her not dancing properly (due to some meds as well), etc.

And all this time, everyone has made a profit off of Britney. The superstar who traveled the world and was forced to work with manipulations, while still being trapped in a golden cage. Until she rebelled...

One thing that makes me hopeful in Britney’s situation is that towards the end of his conservativorship he was charged large legal fees, Britney was too recently so maybe that will be enough to pay her way out of this and Lynne recently moved her lawyers to Cali to help Britney…Lynne is one of the few people who can file to end the conservativorship

If cship is there to save Britneys fortune then why she pays for all the lawyers. Some1 need to account money she spent on all that court expenses it is probably the same if she just would hire a professional team to handle her money and then go and consult with them about big purchases like buying a car.

Thank god this man is out but can Britney be ?
