The Kidnapping of Rudy and Rennie North by April Parks, Professional Guardian

I am shocked and angered every time I hear about another kidnapping of senior citizens right out of their homes. And because my own mother was kidnapped the same way by another woman, Mary Giordano, an elder care attorney and guardian, I know each story is true. I also know each of these illegal kidnappings are done with the blessings of a judge, which somehow makes it “legal.” Is it legal? Of course not. Remember, a judge is only a lawyer who put on a robe; someone who was nominated and voted to the bench by other lawyers and citizens, many who contributed to their campaign funds. However, they are given unprecedented power to destroy people’s lives. I continually pray that someone who has power and a conscience in this country finally does something to stop this modern-day Holocaust.

as told to Diane Wilson by Julie Lynn Belshe

On August 30, 2013, April Parks, a “professional guardian” in Boulder City, Nevada, kidnapped Rudy and Rennie North from their home in Nevada. They had no idea this was happening. Their only daughter, Julie Lynn Belshe knew nothing about this. She was in daily contact with her parents and visited often, along with her husband and children. No lawyers were involved, they never went to court, they did not receive any phone calls from any lawyers, there were no letters or court documents sent to their home.

This woman, April Parks, who identified herself as an officer of the court, showed up at their home one day with an entourage of other people. According to Julie’s parents, April Parks and the others told them  “We have an emergency order to remove you from your home. You have three choices; we can call the police and you will go to jail; you can come to Lakeview Terrace (assisted living facility) in Boulder City and stay there; you can be placed in a psychiatric ward.” Her mother started crying and told them to leave her home; her father was very worried about his wife who is ill and said they would go to Lakeview. April Parks told her mother “Don’t worry, you are only going there to rest for three weeks.” They were then put in a car and taken away.

The house they were living in was emptied of all of their personal belongings, allegedly stolen by the guardian. Many items were also discarded which their daughter found in trash bins. The money in their bank accounts was allegedly stolen by April Parks, along with their identity; licenses, credit cards and social security cards. Court hearings were held and all court documents were fabricated with a host of lies, including the story that the daughter was an “addict.” Julie spoke up in court but said that the judge ignored everything she said. According to information given to Julie by other sources, the judge and guardian already have a large number of complaints filed against them.

Rudy and Rennie told Julie that they found out later that the hospice worker who was caring for Rennie divulged all of their personal information to April Parks, which was illegal and a total violation of their HIPAA rights.

To this day, they remain imprisoned in this facility, held against their will. Their story goes much deeper. More to be revealed soon…..

Watch their story below and hear them tell it in their own words….

The Late Judge Joel Asarch-A message from the Other Side

January 7, 2014

by Diane Wilson

The late Judge Joel Asarch was the probate judge in my mother’s guardianship case. He was the one who oversaw everything from the very beginning, and appointed Anne Recht (AMRecht Assoc in Plainview) as geriatric “care” manager and Mary Giordano (elder care attorney with Franchina and Giordano in Garden City) as Mom’s “guardian.” He was the one who signed the papers to put my mother in a nursing home. Although he verbally made that order on August 1, 2011, he did not actually sign the papers until August 19, a Friday. Judge Asarch was under investigation by the New York State Judicial Commission due to all of the complaints I filed against him, but he signed it anyway. I always thought that he knew he was wrong. I think he also knew he was finally caught in the web of corruption of his own making and that his time was up.

During the years of this horrific ordeal and after, I had many dreams involving the judge and the guardian. After Mom died, the dreams continued. However, what I want to share with you was something very different; an actual conversation. It was an amazing vision of the late Judge and a conversation I had with him a few months ago.

In this vision, Judge Asarch had tears streaming down his face. He was sitting on a “bench” with other judges who had also passed to the Other Side, and they were all watching a big screen. On that screen were images of all of their corrupt doings; all of the illegal actions they did during their time as judges. It showed all the money they took “under the table” to make those rulings. They were watching images of all of the people whose lives they destroyed. The anger that I felt welling up inside me towards this evil man surprised me. I realized I am not ready to forgive him, not yet, not now, but maybe someday.

He told me he didn’t expect me to forgive him. And then he said “Bravo to you, Ms. Wilson.” He was actually acknowledging the fact that I stood up to him and the others; something no one else had done all these years. I was crying and asking him why did he do what he did, knowing that I was the one who wanted to care for my mother; knowing that my siblings didn’t want to care for her at all. His face was extremely sad, and the tears continued. “Yes, we all knew you should have been caring for your mother. We all knew the others did not want to be bothered. But it was part of the game.”

I asked him why he treated my brother in such a deferential and kind manner despite the way my brother spoke to everyone; despite the complaints from the aides about him and the fact that every time he showed up in court he was dressed so disrespectfully—in sweat-shorts, a T-shirt and sneakers. Asarch said, “Again, it was part of the game, to divide the family.” He then told me that the others would continue to lie about me and twist the truth; that I needed to remain calm, professional, truthful and stick to the facts. This man, or ghost if you want to call him that, was giving me the advice he learned too late. I already knew this.

I then asked him why he was so corrupt and when he got involved. He told me “From the beginning. Once I got on the bench, it was all around me. Everybody was making deals. It was so easy to do. The power was heady, the money was flowing freely.”
That was it. Just like that….as soon as he got on the bench the corruption was going on all around him and it was “so easy to do.” I think that was the answer that upset me the most; “It was so easy to do.” I wondered, if everyone is simply killing everyone else, does that make it right and easy to do? If everyone is stealing everyone else’s money, is that so easy to do? What about ethics? What about morals? What about compassion, care and concern for humanity and just doing the right thing? Where does that fit in? What about the values a person is raised with?

I believe that God wanted me to know that this man was paying a very heavy price on the Other Side, and that he had a lot of work to do to pay for his crimes against humanity. I believe God wanted to relieve some of my pain. And for that I will always be extremely grateful.

An Open Letter to David L. Moss

I was going to send this email to David L. Moss, the attorney who “will now provide no-charge case evaluation to landlords in NYC for Article 81 Guardianship Proceedings.” However, I was told that it was likely he wouldn’t care, and after reading his PR piece about what he is doing, I realized that was probably true. In my opinion, anyone who promotes their business teaching landlords, for the sake of evicting tenants, how to start guardianship proceedings  against an individual, is not going to care about a letter from me. So I decided to post it here. Hopefully, others will speak up as well and let David L. Moss and Associates know how they feel about what he is doing.

Dear Mr. Moss,

I just read an article about how you and your law firm will now provide “no-charge case evaluation to landlords in NYC for Article 81 Guardianship Proceedings for landlords. ”

To say I was sickened is putting it mildly. As a lawyer, I know you are well aware of how guardianship destroys people’s lives. It takes away their rights, their freedom, their estates, their right to vote, their right to marry; everything you, as an officer of the law, should be protecting.

I applied for guardianship to protect my mother from my siblings, who wanted to sell her home and put her in a nursing home. I promised her that would never happen. I was completely unaware of the corruption in our judicial system when I innocently went to court to try to protect her. A stranger was appointed by the court and in a little over two years, she systematically destroyed her life. She kidnapped my Mom, imprisoned her in a nursing  home and left her penniless. My beautiful mother died two months later from the stress, frightened to death that she would never be free again.

Do you honestly believe one person should have control over another person’s life, telling them what to do, where to live, what to eat, who they can visit? Do you honestly believe that this is God’s will? Do you honestly believe that one individual should be given the right to steal someone’s possessions and every dollar to their name? Would you like to be guardianized, Mr. Moss? Would you like someone to do that to your mother, your daughter, your son, your friends? Guardianship abuse is all about power and greed, a way to make money by stealing it from an innocent human being.

Please see my Facebook page, SAVE Dorothy Wilson Legally Kidnapped, and feel free to peruse this website I created in honor of my mother, and read the horror stories of lives destroyed by guardianship. Please be sure to read the comments posted under your PR story,

I do hope you will rethink what you are doing. I do hope your conscience will bother you enough to stop you from destroying innocent people’s lives.
