CRIMES AGAINST THE ELDERLY

As Governor, Darrin will advocate for additional min-mandatory sentences against those who prey on the elderly, while at the same time making sure that elderly victims who have been scammed of their life savings have an expedited resolution in criminal court cases. If the offender has the ability to pay restitution immediately, the Courts should allow plea deals that protect the public and help the victim.

An elderly victim needs restitution immediately.

Sadly, Abuse of the elderly including domestic violence and financial exploitation is growing rapidly in an aging America. Here in Florida the issue is front and center, with Florida having the largest senior population in America. A McGillis administration will set up a State wide task force to take down those who have, and are currently abusing our seniors.

It is well documented that as we age, our chances of being victims of crime decrease dramatically. But a lifetime of experience coupled with the physical problems associated with aging, often make older Americans fearful. Although older people are constantly on the lookout for physical attack and burglary, they're not as alert to frauds and con games which are the greatest crime threat to seniors' well-being and trust.
