Brown signs bill to protect rights of conservatees
SANTA CLARA COUNTY, Calif. (KGO) -- Gov. Brown signed a bill into law Monday protecting the rights of people under a conservatorship. That's when a judge appoints someone to handle the affairs of a person due to old age or physical limitations.
An ABC7 News I-Team investigation uncovered cases in which the Santa Clara County public guardian was restricting access to conservatees.
The law clarifies a conservatee's right to have visitors, phone calls, and personal mail.
