When false arrests and false accusation arise from a "dementia" person, the accused is rarely represented in the case.
With the mandatory arrests and no-drop case filings, whatever a caregiver is accused of is taken as truth due to "Elder Abuse" laws in place.
Does not matter what defense attorney you hire, it is a no win situation for the caregiver.
Police are not medical experts and love the new laws that do not protect anyone, technically. The "Dementia" person is left to fend for themselves and the family member faces felony charges.
