Nurse “kidnapped” by the state after receiving large sum of money from deceased father
06/29/2022 // Belle Carter // Views

Karen Federighi was a registered nurse living a simple life and working at a Florida hospital just over six years ago. But Federighi's life took a dramatic turn when her father died and left her a large sum of money.

One day in January 2016, she heard a knock and found state police at her door. Right there and then, Federighi was informed that she was a "ward of the state." The ward of the state means a child who, as determined by the state where the child resides, is a foster child or is in the custody of a public child welfare agency.

Even though Federighi lived on her own, had a job and was supporting herself, a jealous family member got a three-person panel to declare that she was mentally incompetent and unable to handle her own affairs. Nobody on that panel even bothered to check if Federighi was employed.

Federighi lost control of all her finances, making it basically impossible for her to travel. Her car, pets and all personal possessions were confiscated. She had to beg the state-appointed guardian to give her money to buy food. Because of this, she tried to escape by fleeing, but the state police chased her down and threw her into an assisted living home.

Someone was able to help her resettle in Los Angeles, but the legal struggle to regain control of her life drained all her money. She basically lost everything.

In her recent interview on the "Stew Peters Show," Federighi slammed the government for allowing this organized illegal activity in the guardianship system. She agreed with Peters that her inherited money, along with taxpayer dollars, was used to fund her own kidnapping.


"The Department of Children and Families [DCF], which includes Child Protective Services and Adult Protective Services, receives federal funding from the government. And when DCF gets somebody into their custody, they receive additional federal funding for each person. And so it's a huge racketeering, business involving the sheriffs, police, judges, lawyers and guardians," she said. (Related: CPS kidnaps three children after loving family seeks medical help.)

This racket involves insurance, Medicaid, Medicare and social security fraud. Federighi also exposed the Big Government for asking her to sign a document saying that she will not sue the people that did this to her. She said no.

"So obviously, they know that they did wrong, they know that they're breaking the law," Peters pointed out.

Being one of the leaders of the USA Citizens Guardianship Task Force, Federighi is now fighting to change America's guardianship laws and procedures to make sure that government-backed kidnappings can never happen again.

Petition to abolish guardianship laws sent to Senate, Congress and Biden

Back in February, Federighi and two other victims and advocates sent a petition titled "Abolish all Commission Codes for Guardianship/Conservatorship from Legislation Law Books" to the Senate, Congress, and President Joe Biden.

"I found a couple of other victims in Collier County, Peggy Dupree and Betty Gosnell, who were also kidnapped into fraudulent guardianships in 2020," she said.

Dupree is suing the county as well. She didn't lose her estate, but she lost her son. Her autistic son was treated by a doctor without her consent. She lost custody of her son when she alerted the authorities regarding this.

"It's not just about the money, it's about exposing how corrupt these guardianships are, and how it exposes the vulnerable and the weak," Dupree said in an interview with Fox4.

Apparently, lawyers are afraid to touch such cases.

"Lawyers are afraid they'll be disbarred or sanctioned, and they demand like a $40,000 retainer fee. Our three cases combined could be a Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) case and would earn a lawyer millions of dollars," she said.

Guardianship is governed by state law and each state has its own set of guardianship laws. The Uniform Guardianship, Conservatorship and Other Protective Arrangements Act, a model act developed by the Uniform Law Commission, uses the term guardian for a person appointed by a court to manage the care and wellbeing of another person; and conservator for a person appointed by the court to manage the property of another person.

However, states use those terms differently. California, for example, uses the term conservator for someone appointed to make personal and financial decisions for an adult.

The guardianship typically ends when the individual dies. Courts may also terminate the guardianship when the person's condition improves and he or she no longer requires the help of a guardian; the person’s support systems improve and a less restrictive alternative can be used to meet the individual's needs; and there is evidence to show that the person does not need a guardian.

The individual can petition the court to request that the guardianship be terminated, or at least modified to regain some of the rights.
