Assemblywoman Young Kim introduces AB 1718 to protect elderly from financial abuse crimes

Assemblywoman Young Kim (R-Fullerton) introduced AB 1718 to strengthen seniors’ protections against financial abuse by giving judges the option to sentence criminals convicted of felony financial elder abuse to state prison instead of the current option of only county jail.

“We have an obligation to protect the most vulnerable in our society, and our senior citizens are regularly targeted for financial abuse,” said Kim. “By sending these criminals to state prison, we send a message that we have zero tolerance for these crimes and that we are serious about bringing these people to justice and about protecting our seniors.”

Since the state enacted Governor Jerry Brown’s prison reform, also known as Realignment, county jails have seen an influx of inmates who previously would have served their terms in state prison. This has led to overcrowding and, in some cases, early release of inmates who still pose a danger to society.

“I’m committed to fighting to improve public safety and protect California’s seniors,” said Kim. “By sending these criminals to prison, we can end slap-on-the wrist punishments for doing the unconscionable – preying on the savings of seniors.”

Kim represents the 65th Assembly District, which includes the communities of Anaheim, Buena Park, Cypress, Fullerton, La Palma, and Stanton.
