The Gary Harvey Case: Fighting for his freedom from Chemung County

For those of you who are not familiar with the case of Gary Harvey, Gary is a veteran who suffered an accident in his home which resulted in a head injury. He has since been under the abusive guardianship of Chemung County. The following article details everything that has transpired since that time. 

“Follow the money” and you will see why Chemung County refuses to let go of their stranglehold on this man, and why they are refusing to allow his wife, Sara, to take care of him at home. 

As you read this, the obvious shenanigans of politics and the good ol’ boys club are glaringly obvious, not to mention all of the laws that have been broken. However, those who have broken the law are not being held accountable. Why not?

The government programs and agencies that have been put in place by our politicians to protect the elderly and disabled are just fluff. They only work for a certain few; they do not work when there is an opportunity for judges and lawyers and nursing homes and hospitals to obtain millions of dollars in government funds at the expense of the individual and their loved ones.         

The horrific nightmare that is the life of Sara and Gary Harvey could happen to any one of us or our loved ones at any time. It is time to take a stand and do something about it. After all, America is the land of the free…or is it?

About Diane Wilson

Guardianship must be abolished. This draconian law strips human beings of their civil and humanitarian rights. It is used as a method to dispose of the elderly and disabled, steal their estates, and isolate them from their loved ones.

  1. What is happening in the lives of Gary and his wife is a very sick and damaging game of attorneys praciticing invited error and profiting handsomely from it. It is a game driven by the sick egos of people who “think they know” yet admit they don’t.

    A “proverbial guardian of last resort” — as Chemung County Attorney Maggs claims them to be — is not there to DICTATE and claim to be the ALMIGHTY PROTECTOR of Gary — this is NOT a “protective proceeding” — this is a case of univited meddlers’ and intrudes who have usurped they way into Gary’s life and that of his marriage and family. NY guardianship under the mental hygiene code Article 81 says “ASSIST”, it says “LEAST RESTRICTIVE intervention” (apparently criminal confinement and absolute isolation qualify as least restrictive) and Article 81 is emphatic in its intent that decsion-making include consideration for the personal wishes, desires and preferences of the person under guardianship. With this in mind, one need only ask this question to watch the house of cards tumble on this guardian and those in oppostion with Gary’s wife —

    Upon what evidence, clear and convincing in nature, do you as guardian conclude that Gary does not wish to freely associate, assemble and commune in family unity as husband and wife, with his wife?

    You can ask MHLS counsel this same question with a twist, upon what clear and convincing evidence do you as appointed counsel conclude that it is Gary’s personal wish, desire and preference to object to, resist and seek to defeat and frustrate, his wife’s advocacy efforts to ensure the very best quality of care and quality of life for her incapcitated husband?

    Guardians do not dictate — well they do, but they are idiots for doing so and as God is my witness there is going to be a price paid for for the abuse and torment of Gary Harvey and his wife and or the abuse and torment of wards and families everywhere.

  2. I am so sorry Sara. I cannot believe that this is still going on. And to deny you the right to see your husband. I don’t know who these people think they are!! I still cannot help but wonder if their family and friends and loved ones know what these horrible people are doing to others. You are right, enough is enough. We just need to keep praying to God to stop this abuse.

  3. Someday may the Lord step in and say enough is enough. Gary is the only one who suffers the most by this county for profit abusive guardianship. Today my sister received a phone call from Linda Daino 607-737-5358 who has been my husbands case worker and has documented 277 pages of PSA notes since 2007 who tells my sister she is “new” on the case and she can not visit her brother-in-law, Gary, and the only way she can visit is during my visits. They still have not restored my visits since I “hotlined” the hospital for a wound on my husband on May 31, 2012.
