LAS VEGAS (KTNV) – Another private guardian was charged with abuse of a vulnerable person on Thursday.
The young victim in the case was the first to come forward and talk with Contact 13 about corruption in the guardianship system.
Jason Hanson’s guardianship case was supposed to end when he became an adult. But Contact 13 discovered the court kept it open for seven years after his 18th birthday. And during that time, several so-called professionals came in and out of his life while the money set aside for his care dwindled away.
Darcy: “Did you get lost in the system or do you think it’s more sinister than that?”
Jason: “I don’t know if I got lost in the system or if it was more underhanded than that. But the system definitely needs to change.”
