Nancy Daoust came to Aurora Municipal Court Monday morning to face a trespassing summons. But the 60-year-old honestly had no idea where she was or why.

"The fact that this is quote unquote being treated as a criminal matter is very frustrating. You know, I have to lose a day of work," Nancy's husband James Daoust told KDVR, who calls her ticket for trespassing a lack of compassion and common sense.

Daoust says his wife was diagnosed with advanced frontal temporal dementia at the age of 58. Her condition has deteriorated to the point she's no longer capable of talking but she does like to wander on walks. That's what led to her municipal summons.

"She rang a doorbell and walked away, literally. Is it an inconvenience and a nuisance? Sure. But it's not a crime and it's being treated as such," said Daoust, explaining how his wife was cited for ringing the doorbell of a neighbor, who lives about six houses away from their home in Aurora.

KDVR paid a visit to the neighbor who called police but the neighbor wouldn't come to the door. Instead, his wife said, "He declines to come out, he doesn't want to talk."

Aurora Police Department spokeswoman Crystal McCoy told KDVR the officer who wrote the ticket is sympathetic to Nancy Daoust's diagnosis of dementia but said the officer had no choice.

"When a property owner wants a law enforced on their property, this is not an area that we have discretion in," McCoy said.

Municipal Judge Shawn Day continued Nancy Daust's court date for two weeks to give the city attorney and James Daoust a chance to meet to see if the city attorney might be willing to dismiss the ticket.

"I mean she (Nancy) clearly has a disease. It chose her, she didn’t choose it. Like I said to the judge, there’s no way she’s even remotely competent to stand trial," said James Daoust.

James told the Problem Solvers he normally walks with his wife but on May 16, the day she was ticketed, she managed to escape the house.

"This particular day, she was laying on the couch, so I went to the bathroom. When I came out, she was gone. I went to get her and apparently she had already rang his doorbell," James said.

The 63-year-old Comcast employee said his employer and most of his neighbors have shown nothing but compassion and understanding, with the exception of the one neighbor who called police.

The neighbor is a miserable fuck and enjoyed making someone else miserable. Use a prepaid phone card and order a dozen pizzas to be delivered to his house C.O.D. Tell the person taking the order that it is to be delivered to Mr. whatever the asshole's name is. and to include the nickname, Grumpy.

If he doesn't want to come out and make a statement to the responding officer, then how is he requesting a law to be enforced on his property? WTF?

Yeah Bastard!

We used to live next door to a man who was in his 70's who had an aunt, in her 80's plus, who liked to walk, she also had dementia, she always stopped off at our house and just came right in, we never called the police, just called the neighbor who came and got her. Once she had my husband pinned in a corner of the kitchen with her finger in his face demanding to know what we had done with Kurt. She was about 6ft tall with a turban, quite a formidable looking woman.

This guy is a limp dick asshole with no sense of community or compassion. I say they take a humanitarian vote and throw him out of the neighborhood.

make a statement to the responding officer,
He didn't want to talk to KDVR, I'm sure he spoke at length with the officer, assholes usually can get their complaints across in bullet points when they feel they have been wronged, even by an old woman with dementia.

What a skeevy bastid. How is that a crime? I hope by the time it gets to court, the judge dismisses it. This jackwipe is the original Grinch. He was probably scared of the lady.

"OOOOH!! OOOOH!!! She rang my doorbell and didn't even make a threat, but just WALKED AWAY!!!!!!! Do you know how scary that is??? It's scary enough that I shat my pants. I may never step outside again! I might even sue. Anybody know a good liar- I mean lawyer?"

It occurred to me that, maybe, the complainer has cognitive issues as well. I don't think it would've been wrong for LE to check out the situation, but arresting her was. I don't care what they said, they have the discretion of whether or not to arrest someone. They could've just taken her for a psych hold, couldn't they?
