July 4, 2015 – Facing Florida investigates the case of Ernestine Franks of Pensacola. Mrs. Franks son Doug Franks has been waging a 3+ year battle to free his mother from a for-profit guardianship that was enacted by a Florida probate court in spite of medical testimony that Mrs. Franks was perfectly mentally competent.  The “estate” of Mrs. Franks has paid over $1,000,000 in attorneys’ fees, guardianship fees, and related court costs that were completely unnecessary and served no purpose other than to enrich the attorneys and the financial trust company – both of which were the instigators of Mrs Frank’s guardianship.
