Indirect Criminal Contempt of Orphans’ Court Order

After Orphans’ Court ordered son of alleged incapacitated person (mother) not to visit his mother at her nursing home without siblings’ supervision, (because he had previously manipulated her, blocked access to her, moved her out of state, and filed bankruptcy actions on her behalf),  Orphans’ court held that the son committed indirect criminal contempt, when the son went to visit his mother on the day following the court order without his siblings’ supervision, because the order was clear, the son had notice of the order, the son’s actions were volitional, and the son acted with wrongful intent.  Matter of Angelina Mazza, 3 Fid. Rep. 3d 427 (O.C. Chester 2013) (Opinion by Tunnell, J.)
