Former Sheriff Incarcerated for Refusing to Shut up about Guardianship Abuses

By Janet Phelan

As shock waves, initially engendered by the revelations of abuse in the high-profile conservatorship of pop star Britney Spears, begin to subside, another guardianship case has emerged of equally disturbing proportions. Seated in Nevada, this case reveals a level of relentlessness by the state as it strives to imprison two men who attempted to free a woman from a nursing home.

A writ of habeus corpus is circulating concerning the felony charges against Roger Hillygus and his associate, former Mineral County Sheriff and 30-year law enforcement veteran Stewart Handte. The charges stemmed from their trip to Stone Valley Alzheimer’s Special Care Center on August 8, 2019 and their subsequently escorting Susan Hillygus out of the facility, where her guardian had forcibly and non consensually placed her.

Handte was originally arrested in August of 2019 and released without bail. Initially charged with a number of felonies, the charges against him were subsequently reduced to a sole charge of “conspiracy.” Handte was rearrested on January 19, 2022 after apparently failing to adhere to an order to wear a GPS monitoring device and after allegedly violating a gag order, denying him any rights to discuss the case against him and against Roger Hillygus. The gag order was signed by Judge Barry Breslow. Stewart Handte has been in Washoe County Jail for over 80 days, subsequent to his re- arrest on January 19 and pending a possible trial in July of 2022.

In a hearing last week, Judge Breslow refused to lower Handte’s $50,000 bail, which Handte is unable to pay. As Handte has no prior convictions and as he is charged with a “crime” that does not entail violence, the amount of bail appears contrary to Nevada guidelines. Handte has medical problems which are reportedly not being addressed in jail.

During the hearing, Judge Breslow queried Handte as to why others weren’t fronting his bail for him, stating, “the fact that they are reluctant (to bail you out) to me suggests that they are worried you would not show up for court and they would lose their bail.”

Stewart Handte responded that his potential supporters are, in fact, scared about the persona that the media is disseminating about him.

The judge appeared not to accept this, insisting that he “doesn’t understand what they would be scared of.”

Breslow refused to lower the bail. Read more here

What if you could wipe out your mortgage in a bankruptcy and still keep your home? 

You may be able to use a little know bankruptcy technique to get clear and free title to your home, and become debt free at the same time! 

Some savvy real estate investors got free properties by listing them as unsecured debt on schedule F in chapter 7 bankruptcy filings to eliminate the entire mortgage debt and walk away with clear and free title to the property.

Filing for bankruptcy can stop a foreclosure sale and or eviction, and if you do it right, could result in you getting 100% clear and free title to your home, and your mortgage totally wiped out too!

According to a University of Iowa Legal Research Study nearly 40% of the bankruptcy cases that involved foreclosures, creditors couldn’t produce the original loan documents when asked.

By the way, is how some savvy investors got properties for free, by listing them on Schedule F, as unsecured using bankruptcy rule 3001.

When “lenders” or mortgage companies would challenge this claim, the investors would simple say show me the note… and when the bank couldn’t, BINGO another free house.

Unfortunately for the average American homeowner the good old bankruptcy boys club has made it  find a lawyer to help you use this technique to getting clear and free title to your home.

However now you can do it yourself Pro Se with FRAUD STOPPERS Bankruptcy and Audit Combo Package. Get your bankruptcy documents professionally prepared and get the evidence you need to get the legal remedy you deserve by clicking here.
