THE GUARDIANS is a revealing investigative documentary set in Las Vegas that exposes allegations of corruption within the Nevada Guardianship and Family Court system. The film shines a light on a lucrative business that drains seniors’ life-savings. Victims and their families are caught in a scheme that has allowed corrupt court-appointed guardians to take total control over individuals’ healthcare and financial decisions.
The Guardians reveals many other stories of widespread abuse happening within the court-appointed guardianship system in Nevada which has enabled those with ulterior motives to nefariously gain control over the lives and estates of some of society’s most vulnerable people. Shot over the course of three years, the film investigates allegations of corruption within the Nevada Guardianship and Family Court System and reveals a cautionary tale that transcends time and place.
$8.5 million dollars. It’s a figure almost impossible to fathom for 81-year-old Rudy North.
“And it’s time,” North said. “It’s taken over four years.”
The autumn 2013 day that April Parks came to take guardianship over Rudy and his wife, Rennie, is a day they’ll never forget.
“We were kidnapped from our house,” Rudy said.
After Contact 13 exposed allegations of fraud against Parks and her company, A Private, Professional Guardian, the court took her off the case.
But in the time Parks controlled every aspect of the Norths’ lives, they lost their home, their car, their life savings and their dignity.
“Our souls were scarred,” is the only way Rudy can describe it.
April Parks is behind bars, awaiting trial on dozens of felony charges for theft, racketeering, perjury and exploitation of older and vulnerable persons.
