Maybe you’ve heard the story of live-in “monster nanny” Diane Stretton, who refused to move out of her employer’s Upland, California, home after she was fired more than a month ago. This was after Stretton just stopped taking care of the family’s children. The police refused to get involved because they deemed it a civil matter. Finally, Stretton has agreed to leave, but only if the family meets her list of demands, which includes a budget for food, access to the house, and mandatory times the family must leave her alone in the house.
But this is not Stretton’s first rodeo:
Although there is no record of a similar case involving employment as a nanny, PEOPLE has found Stretton’s name attached to more than a dozen cases in three Southern California counties ranging from nonpayment to property damage to negligence. Of the 13 cases found by PEOPLE dating back to 2002, she is a plaintiff in 7 cases and a defendant in 6 more. ABC News reports that she is listed by California Courts as a vexatious litigant for abusing the legal system.
This is why you don’t get everything off of Craigslist, people.
