The elderly with assets are not the only targets of predatory guardians and corrupt probate courts.  The targeting of disabled adults is also a growing problem.  These individuals can be worth huge amounts of cash once inside the system.

Dr. Robert Fettgather has fought a seven year battle over his adult son, David.  According to the courts, Dr. Fettgather is a "legal stranger" to his son and has been denied contact with him since his kidnapping and imprisonment in Alta Regional Center.


Dr Robert Fettgather- mental health professional since 1976, psychiatric technician, learning disabilities specialist, clinical psychologist.
