My mother currently lives somewhere in australia. When i was younger she moved to australia and sent me to numberous boarding schools throughout high school.
As i was living in colorado, after 2-3 years, she came back unnanounced to the state of colorado and got a judge to court order me in a mental hospital, she basically just listed 20+ psychological symptoms and convinced some shitty judge to lock me up.
The trust fund court hearings, which i was told not to be a part of, took place in colorado. I dont know what that means but, she does not live in colorado she lives in australia. Do i still contact the colorado adult help line?
Im sorry if there is unneccessary information in this reply, im just trying to get as much information as i can think of out there.
i contacted the people on the website you gave me by phone, they told me to call the attorney general, i did that and they said the attorney general only handles private cases or something and that they were not the people to call.
what do i tell these people specifically besides my mother took money out of my guardianed trust fund.
the attorney general said to call the police, should i dial 911 or find a number for the denver police departement?
i called the DA they told me to call the economics divison of fraud or something, and i got an answering machine. i left my number at the hotel im staying in hopefully theyll call me back shortly
i tried calling the dependent adult abuse services in florida, but they said since i wasnt a resident of florida they couldnt help me and directed me to a 211 counseling number or the sheriffs office. i will not have access to a phone within the next couple of days, should i try to contact colorado services.
thank you for being very helpful, i have one more follow up question. in my next accusation do i have a case for a private attorney or should i send this to the DA as well, or does it just make me seem crazy.
To get me convicted of being graveley disabled and unable to take care ofd myself, she had been talking to this psychiatrist for weeks possibly even months attempting to convince him i was mentally ill. This 'doctor' had 'diagnosed' me before even having had met me. The court documents and recorded statements will show that the accussations contradicted many statments made by the accusers.I do believe, as crazy as this sounds, my mother may have contacted a defense lawyer to defend me and entrap me as much as possible, taking away my right to a fair trial in the first place. This lawyer, Wendy Lewis, was not as is not a mental health defense lawyer, no one had ever heard of her and there was no way she could have found out about my case otherwise unless she knew me or of me from the community/city i was in, in colorado, at the time. this lawyer was very suspicious, refused to talk to me for more than 2 minutes before the trial to get information or a case together. She would wave her hand encouragingly if i said anything incriminating while on the witness stand.My mother has been taking me to therapists etc since i was 5 years old, talking to them for 3 weeks or more before having me see them in person, convincing them to accuse me of being bad or whatever she had in mind. I have been 'diagnosed' with probably over 20-30 symptoms over the years, a new one after one is 'resolved' or proven incorrect. i believe this is child abuse.as this was a traumatic experience being locked in a room for months at a time, then basically house arrest for a year afterwards, this is all becoming clear to me now.
