Orlando Event Rescheduled for NOVEMBER 4, 2019

UPDATED 9-05-19




POSTPONED – Due to Hurricane Dorian

Rescheduled for Novmber 4, 2019



International Award-winning documentary “The Guardians” comes to Orlando


FREE public event: Guardianship Awareness Town Hall


Special Announcement at 3 PM

Imagine a system of justice in this country that routinely strips citizens of their Constitutional rights, voids their existing legal documents, gives others the right to spend their money and sell their assets, isolates them, and often put limits the time they can spend with their loved ones and shortens their lives significantly.


This is reality for millions of Americans who have been placed into court ordered  guardianships, including as many as 65,000 Floridians who are deemed “wards of the state.”  Due to longer American life spans and the “silver tsunami” of an aging US population with 10,000 baby boomers turning 65 every day, the number of “incapacitated” wards is increasing at a rate of 10% annually. Deemed the crime of the century, current figures show that guardianship abuse has become an over $1 trillion national market; a heinous “cottage industry” waging war against vulnerable adults and their families– all in the name of greed.


“Abusive guardianships are on the rise and for families of victims trapped in this opaque and highly intrusive dystopic legal system, the abuse and vilification victims and families suffer at the hands of predatory court insiders as has been exposed by the Orlando Sentinel as “Central Florida’s Guardianship Scandal” is unspeakable”, says Dr. Sam J. Sugar, founder of Ft. Lauderdale-based Americans Against Abusive Probate Guardianship (AAAPG), the organizer of this event.

The Movie and Town Hall–the entire event is FREE to attend


November 4, 2019  

3:00 PM – 7:30 PM

Marriott Orlando Airport Lakeside

7499 Augusta National Drive

Orlando, FL 32822


“The recurring M.O. in these cases is vilify,litigate,medicate, isolate, take the estate” continues Dr. Sugar, a Florida licensed M.D., a Certified Florida Probate Court Examiner and author of “Guardianships and the Elderly-The Perfect Crime” (a 2018 Amazon #1 Best New Release.)


at 3 PM AAAPG will announce the inauguration of the Adult Guardianship Review and Advisory Board for Florida.

The 3:15-5 PM session features the jaw-dropping and unnerving full length documentary “The Guardians” making its Orlando debut. With all the trappings of a Hollywood movie – kidnapping, corruption, lies, theft, and deceit –  producer Billie Mintz has poignantly brought to the big screen the reality of daily life for many elderly people caught up in America’s corrupt state court systems.  This award winning 2018 documentary depicts true stories of Las Vegas, NV seniors with guardians who are forcibly removing them from their homes, isolating them from families and emptying their bank accounts. This is a film where the phrase ‘seeing is believing’ has never rung more true.

Break from 4:45 to 5:30 PM–Book signing and sales

Dr. Sugar will be joined during the 5:30 PM session by media, agency officials, elected leaders and national guardianship and elder justice experts discussing critical information that individuals and family members need to know to prevent guardianships and protect the rights of themselves and their loved ones.  Topics will include new federal legislation, coping with unrelenting stress and dealing with the isolation, litigation, over-medication and estate liquidation so often seen in abusive guardianships across the country.

Reservations required.

  1. You should add incarceration, prison for the heir and heiress for the “ward” if they protest and refuse to give up their inheritance to the Court and attorneys.
    My own story:
    My hands were in tied up in hand cuffs, waist in chain, and ankles have shackles. The Court told me (heiress) to sign consent judgment or I will be in jail until she gets back from her vacation on January 2, 2018. I asked her (The Court) did you read it. The Court said no. I said I would not sign it. The Court sent me back to jail (Palm Beach County Jail). I read the proposed court order on 12/22/2017. The proposed court order state that The Guardianship was all my fault. That I have to pay attorney fees with my inheritance if not enough the attorney can go after me for my own personal properties. There were two sheriffs on each side from where I sat. What kind of Law is this? Oh, I was arrest for Contempt of Court September 13, 2017. Florida Supreme Court AOSC17-59. Palm Beach County Courthouse was closed. Total time that I was at the Guardianship Court hearings was August 11, 2016, August 29, 2016 and October 18, 2016. Each time, I told the Court Florida Statutes section 744.331(6)(b). There is no court jurisdiction. But does it matter? When attorneys want money? I filed sue against the attorneys. The Clerk of Palm Beach County in charge of Guardianship filed complaint to the Detective of Palm Beach County. The Detective arrest me without arrest warrant. I had to pay $3,000 bail bond to get out of jail. I did not know that they had make up two criminal codes that does not exist in the West’s Florida Criminal Law and Rules 2018. The Criminal Judge spent 6 months to determine whether I am indigent and public defender should be assign to me. I refused public defender. I told judge there is no criminal code for my arrest. It does not matter. Then State Prosecutor decided that I am incompetent and not intelligent enough to stand for trial to represent myself. I filed appeal to 4DCA. 4DCA wrote lack of jurisdiction. Then I was with a FORCED PLACED attorney to accompany me for intelligent and competent with psychologist for the next 3 months. I insisted on Court Reporter. Therefore, the other judge cannot deny that I am competent and intelligent. I should have video tape myself interview other people and being interview. I insisted on trial. The State Prosecutor, Judge, and I went through 3.5 days of trial. I was found guilty of fabricated criminal code. It took Judge 62 days to sentence me. Two days later, I filed notice of appeal after Judge sentenced me from the jail. It took 8 days for the Notice of Appeal to appear in the docket because I mail it from the jail. I wrote up Motion for post trial release pending 4DCA __-______ appeal and filed it from Palm Beach County jail. The day that I sent out Motion for post trial release pending 4DCA__ – ____ appeal I was transported to F.W.R.C.. On July 30, 2019 I was able to put up $2,000 bail bond to work on my appeal. This is totally wrong when attorneys can have such control over the court system.
    Federal Judges and Federal Court follow U.S. Constitution. Why can 15th Judicial Circuit? At least follow the most basic Florida Rules of Judicial Administration 2.515, probate code 5.020. The attorneys did not sign their names because they don’t want to perjury themselves.

    Keep Pushing Sam and Rick we will get there. Everybody this is becoming epidemic. I urge all people to watch this movie and be “connected. This the third time the Florida Bar has turned us down. Keep in mind everyone that the Florida Supreme Court grants the Florida Bar the power to make law and procedures only if it is in the public’s interest. We know that the Bar could care less.
