Kerri Kasem Statement on Los Angeles District Attorney’s Decision to Not File Charges Against Jean Kasem

Please find enclosed the official statement from Kerri Kasem regarding the Los Angeles District Attorney’s decision to not file charges against Jean Kasem.

“My family is very sad to learn the Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey has decided not to file charges against Jean Kasem. We did everything we could to save my Dad at the end of his life, including getting an emergency court order for conservatorship. But we were too late. My father’s second wife Jean had done everything she could to keep our father from us while not providing the quality care that he – and every other senior in our society – deserves.

We’re hopeful that the prosecutors in Kitsap County, Washington where my father was taken against his will and later died, will do the right thing and file charges against Jean.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney, with her professed interest in ending elder abuse, could do more. Her website says ‘she leads the largest prosecutorial office in the nation, with nearly 1,000 attorneys, 300 investigators and 800 support staff members.’

It’s a sad day in our country when our parents, family members and loved ones die at the hands of others, and our elected prosecutors elect to do nothing.”
