new laws for elderly

Posted by wlpo on July 29, 2012

New laws signed by Governor Pat Quinn this weekend are aimed at protecting the elderly in Illinois by making it easier for authorities to respond to cases of abuse or neglect. One of the new pieces of legislation allows prosecutors to ask a court to freeze a suspect’s assets if he is charged with financial exploitation of an elderly person. That’s meant to keep a defendant from spending stolen money.
