Every year more than 9,000 cases of elder abuse are reported in San Diego County and data shows the crime is often underreported and difficult to fight in court, leaving a majority of cases "open" investigations. Experts said those numbers are likely much higher but elder abuse crimes often go unreported leaving victims in distressing, potentially deadly situations. The San Diego Police Department Elder Abuse Unit reports on its website that one out of twenty elders will be a victim of abuse in their lifetime.
Even though the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency has policies in place that can protect immigrant U.S. veterans from deportation, NBC Bay Area’s Investigative Unit has learned that ICE officials have not regularly followed their own rules and failed to keep adequate records on veterans who are not citizens. A report by congressional investigators states: "When ICE agents and officers learn they have encountered a potentially removable veteran, ICE policies require them to take additional steps to proceed with the case." But when the Government Accountability Office reviewed five years of ICE records, it reported that "GAO found that ICE did not consistently follow its policies involving veterans."

"The best way to clear my name was to get myself out,” said Michael Robinson, who was released on parole from prison in Queens, New York, last March. Robinson, now 52, served 26 years for murdering his ex-wife Gwendolyn Samuels. A jury in 1993 convicted Robinson of fatally stabbing Samuels, who worked in the Bayside neighborhood as a home health aide to an elderly woman who was stabbed in the attack but survived, making her the only witness to the killing. Robinson, a former NYC correction officer, has maintained his innocence. There was no physical evidence linking him to the crime scene, and he passed a polygraph test. Recently, his fight to clear his name has taken a new turn; a judge ordered a hearing to assess the impact of newly discovered DNA evidence that could have affected the trial's outcome.
