Elder or Dependent Adult Abuse: Public Shaming (AB 2324)

Would also make it a misdemeanor for a mandated reporter to fail to report public shaming of an elder or dependent adult, and would include the definition of “abuse of an elder or a dependent adult” public shaming, which is defined as the taking, transmission, or dissemination of an image of an elder or dependent adult that shames, degrades, humiliates, or otherwise harms the personal dignity of the elder or dependent adult.
