Family Stumped by Fired Live-In Nanny Who Won't Leave

PHOTO: Marcella and Ralph Bracamonte from Upland, Calif. say that their live-in nanny, Diane Stretton, refuses to do her job or leave their home after they attempted to terminate her employment.

A California family is stumped about what to do with a live-in nanny they say refuses to work, refuses to be fired and refuses to leave.

In fact, Marcella Bracamonte claims that the nanny, Diane Stretton, has threatened to sue the family for wrongful firing and elder abuse.

Marcella and Ralph Bracamonte of Upland, California, say they hired Stretton, 64, as a live-in nanny on March 4 to help with their three children, ages 11, 4, and 1. According to the couple, the terms of Stretton's employment were that Stretton was to nanny for the family and help around the house in exchange for room and board.

“We’ve done it before and have never had a problem,” Marcella Bracamonte told ABC News. “I was a stay-at-home mom and thought it would be good to have someone around to help out.”

PHOTO: Marcella and Ralph Bracamonte from Upland, Calif., seen here with their three children, say that their live-in nanny refuses to do her job or leave their home after they attempted to terminate her employment.

“The first few weeks she was awesome,” Bracamonte said. “She would come places with us, help out the kids. She was really great.”

Then things changed.

“All of a sudden she stopped working, she would stay in her room all day and only come out when food was ready,” said Bracamonte.

Stretton then told the couple she had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which prevented her from helping around the house.

After what Bracamonte said was weeks of failed attempts to encourage Stretton to perform some of her agreed upon duties, the couple approached her on June 6 with a “last chance letter” reiterating the conditions of her job and stating the consequences if she continued to ignore her responsibilities. Stretton, Bracamonte said, refused to sign the letter, saying that the job was too much for her and she would be leaving in 30 days.

The Bracamontes approached her with a second letter putting her 30-day notice in writing, which, they said, she also refused to sign.

“When I asked her why she wouldn’t sign the letter she said ‘It’s not legal,’ and slammed the door in my face,” Bracamonte recalled. “Once she said the word legal, I knew it wasn’t going to be fun.”

Bracamonte called the police, but the cops declined to do anything, saying it was a civil matter. Lt. John Moore of the Upland Police Department confirmed to ABC News that there is no immediate action that can be taken against Stretton, saying "generally, once somebody has established residency, you have to go through a formal eviction process.”

Bracamonte soon realized that this was not Stretton’s first time with legal matters. Stretton reportedly has been involved in 36 lawsuits, landing herself on California’s Vexatious Litigant Lists for repeatedly abusing the legal system.

“Anyone who looks at her crooked, she sues,” said Bracamonte.

She claims that Stretton is now threatening to sue for wrongful firing and elder abuse.

Stretton is still living in the family's home, eating the family's food and Bracamonte said Stretton told her she wanted the family out of the house from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

“I’m not going to bend for her,” said Bracamonte. “I’m in charge, this is my house. She’s not going to scare me out of my own house.”

But Bracamonte fears for her three children staying in the house with Stretton, saying “I worry there’s obviously something not right in her mind, and the police won’t protect us until someone gets hurt.”

“You don’t know what you’re opening yourself up to when you open your house to someone,” said Bracamonte.





BHM, HOW WOULD YOU GET RID OF HER???

She doesn't want to leave? I would turn off the light and the gas while out and put a lock on the refrigerator. When food is ready, I would not allow her to eat.
Eventually she would break something in the house or rob, and then I would send her to jail.




I bet if she were a Hispanic or black nanny, that couple would have fingerprinted her and done a full background check.

They're getting what they deserve. You have a stranger come live with you and your children without so much as a google search?

It takes several months to be formally evicted by the courts. They better get used to having Nana around.

This woman has done this before and knows all the ins and outs an ways to work the system. Phucks aint hardly given cause the mom was so ready to hand off her kids to a stranger that she could not even take the time to Google who would be watching over her children???

Denying her use of the bathroom, heat, or any of those other ideas would be grounds for HER to sue them for harassment and illegal eviction. She has already proved residency so the police cant get involved.

She probably will try and get them to settle out of court so they can be rid of her before the 90 days or longer the court may give her.

Yall should watch a movie called Pacific Heights....

Next time they should have their nanny sign a iron clad agreement that their job can be terminated and they have to leave the premises in 24 or less once the arrangement has been terminated .

All the people saying why she have a nanny for 3 kids and she stay at home must dont have kids...

Kids be so involved in so many activities, its not even funny! Then add in housework and chasing arond a 1 yo, chile please.

Waaaaittt... they got THREE KIDS!


If I were them, I would tell the kids to be as loud as possible near her bedroom, playing, singing, dancing, etc. After all, they are being kids! No one can blame kids for being loud. Saturday and Sundays music would be loud, kids would be playing, friends' over....



I mean, this situation is just ridiculous, it's insane that this woman is still in their house, eating from their food and playing funny with them.

The police didn't do anything because the family didn't make the right charge.

While the Nanny in the kitchen or dining room, have someone enter her room and hide a few items of value that you can prove belong to you. Also instruct them to steal her purse and a few more of her things on their way out.

You be the first to notice that YOUR purse and valuables are missing. Once she discovers she's been robbed also, CALL THE POLICE AGAIN. 
Once the police arrive accuse her of robbing you and say you saw your jewelry box in her room so you called the police. This will give them just cause to search her room. Once she's arrested for theft, press charges. 

She is now legally fired and barred from the premisses without her signature. 

It's not a nice thing to do but this called for desperate measures.

instead of all that do a background check including prints, if she was bonded or attempted to be bonded all of that would've come out

Stop feeding her.
Put a lock on the Pantry, and a chain around the Refrigerator.
If she calls to have food delivered, turn the delivery person away.
She will have to go out for food, then change the door locks.

I would say put locks on the bathroom doors, but she seem enough to 'soil' in the bedroom she occupies.

I wish this triflin bitch would walk in and fix herself a plate of some sh*t I just cooked..

Bracamonte soon realized that this was not Stretton’s first time with legal matters. Stretton reportedly has been involved in 36 lawsuits,

Stretton is still living in the family's home, eating the family's food and Bracamonte said Stretton told her she wanted the family out of the house from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

LOL Granny is about that life. She said this my house now homey!

The "room and board live in nanny" is common in Ca. 
I think it's because of the heavy influx of Mexican immigrants, most are Mexican Women. All you need is a spare room. 

My Aunt has a Mexican live-in house keeper, her son pays the house keeper $100 per week plus the room and board
My Aunt lives in a 2brm condo and is on Social Security. My Aunt and her house keeper have been together for over 15yrs and they're both old ladies.

This old yt bish gone ruin this business for the honest Nannys.

-Set up bright flashing Christmas lights or a floodlight directly by her window outside
-'Misplace' her mail and drop any calls she may happen to receive.
-Create an obstacle course in front of her door for her 64-y.o. self to navigate through...

nah, i think the old broad just knows the law better than they do.  she has been at it a while.  i dont know how cali works but here if someone stays with you over 30 days they are considered a tenant and if they refuse to leave the law says they cant be just kicked out or locked out.  they have to be given notice and legally evicted.

Put the house up for sale !!!

They will probably get a buyer long before the Legal System figure how to handle this mess.

People love to buy homes with a 'history'.

I would have put these paws on her and dragged her out. This is my house. She would know the exquisite and decadent flavor of knuckles.

I wonder if Alice would have done this if the Bradys had fired her. 

It would have made the show expeditiously more interesting

I bet if her nanny was black they would have no problem getting her out. white nannies who get fired and want to squat got it easy. Let that be Henrietta who said she aint living. They would have called the fire department on her ass.

The California ‘nanny from hell’ who made headlines by refusing to leave after getting fired has finally gone as it emerged Friday that the 64-year-old woman was homeless before being hired as a caretaker.

Marcella and Ralph Bracamonte, of Upland, said their children’s former babysitter, Diane Stretton, left the house early Thursday morning and never came back.

Mrs Bracamonte, a mother of three, said when Stretton took off at around 7am, she gave no indication that she was not coming back since all of her belongings stayed behind.

The family can only wonder at Stretton’s next move and are concerned that she may yet make a comeback, http://abcnews.go.com/US/nanny-leave-disappeared/story?id=24339459" rel="nofollow - ABC News reported. 

On Friday night, the 64-year-old Stretton was spotted by http://ktla.com/2014/06/27/plight-of-upland-family-with-nightmare-nanny-goes-viral/" rel="nofollow - KTLA cameras sitting in her car outside the Upland police station. 

Stretton refused to comment and instead concealed herself beneath a blue windshield cover.

The California family have found themselves in the extraordinary position of being unable to evict their live-in nanny after she refused to do any work around the house and to leave.

Mrs Bracamonte, 31, has claimed that Stretton has threatened to sue her family for wrongful dismissal and abuse of the elderly and incredibly, has told them she wants them out of their own house daily between 8am and 8pm.

Upland resident, Bracamonte, and her husband Ralph, hired Stretton March 4 using Craigslist to help with their three children, ages 11, four and one, but when they tried to evict her, police told them they could do nothing as it was a civil matter.

'The first few weeks she was awesome,' said Bracamonte to http://abcnews.go.com/US/family-stumped-fired-live-nanny-leave/story?id=24316229" rel="nofollow - ABC News about her squatter. 'She would come places with us, help out the kids. She was really great.'

But overnight things changed for the stay at home mother and her electrical contractor husband.

'All of a sudden she stopped working, she would stay in her room all day and only come out when food was ready,' said Bracamonte.

The family recently started securing the doors of their refrigerator with a bicycle lock to prevent their unwelcome guest from eating their food.

MailOnline can now exclusively reveal that Ms Stretton was homeless and living in her car before she got the job with the Bracamontes.

Kimberly Whitcomb, a friend of the rogue nanny, told MailOnline: ‘She’s been homeless for about nine years.  She was staying in the homeless shelter (Path of Life) in Riverside.

‘She was struggling and looking for another place and I said check Craigslist, they always have all kinds of odd stuff on there.

‘She found the nanny job and I encouraged her to go for it.’

Kimberly,- who lived in the same apartment block as Stretton’s son, Michael, and began collecting her mail for her when he moved to Arizona, even provided a reference for her friend.

‘She got an interview with the lady and went out there and saw her. She used me as a personal reference and she had another friend from the shelter as a personal reference,’ said Whitcomb. ‘I spoke to the woman Marcella, I recommended Diane as a good person, as a nanny and as someone you can trust. 

‘She’s very professional, she’s got a master’s degree in something, I think it’s biochemistry. But she has health issues, osteoporosis and arthritis.’

Stretton recently lost her spot at the homeless shelter and was living in her car with a suitcase of her possessions.

‘The shelter is limited as to when you can go in there and they want the newest people on the street in there. So she lived in her car for days at a time. It could be for a couple of days at a time or it could be a week,’ according to Whitcomb. ‘She would park it in an empty lot somewhere like a grocery store or department store.

‘She has a Pontiac Grand Am, silver, four door. She had a suitcase with her belongings, to carry around for hygiene or whatever.’

Asked if the Bracamontes were aware Stretton was a homeless person, Kimberly said: ‘No, I don’t think so. They didn’t ask that and I didn’t volunteer it. I think she had been in her car a couple of days at least [when she got the job.

‘When she [Diane] got it she was real happy about being able to have her own place... she was like “I’m really glad I found this place, it’s a nice area.” She said it was nice and roomy. I think she did like the family, she said they gave her a hug and the kids were cute and all that.’

However, having seen the news reports about the family's anguish to have her leave – Whitcomb urged her friend to move out.

She said: ‘I think she should move out, but I don’t honestly know what the problem is.

‘It’s hard to defend her because I don’t know all the facts. It might have been a situation where they just got into a disagreement and it just accelerated out of control from there.

‘Maybe she’s battling some kind of depression or mental illness that we’re unaware of. There’s got to be something physical going on that’s affecting her emotionally that makes her unable to work and keep her promises.

‘She could be in a lot of pain. I would think she would want to go to the doctors and check it out and find out what could be done. I’m concerned for her.

‘She probably should be evaluated by a psychiatrist to find out what’s really going on.’

Asked where her friend would go when she is evicted, Kimberly Whitcomb replied that she would have to go back to the shelter or live in her car.

‘She’s got no property at all and she doesn’t have enough money to get whatever she needs. She is probably not wanting to go back.’

Stretton told Ralph and Marcella that she was suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and that she was unable to leave her room and help with the kids.

Initially concerned for her, the Bracamonte's decided that they couldn't have her living in their home anymore when she simply refused to do anything around the house.

However, serious problems began June 6 when they came to her with what they called a 'last chance letter', which outlined the terms of their initial agreement and threatening her with eviction if she continued to do nothing.

Stretton refused to sign it and said that she would be leaving in 30 days anyway as the stress of the job had become too much for her.

At this point, they asked the 64-year-old to leave and served her with legal papers, but Stretton counter-sued and a judge ruled in her favor because the Bracamonte's did not complete a three-day quit notice correctly.

'When I asked her why she wouldn’t sign the letter she said ‘It’s not legal,’ and slammed the door in my face,' Bracamonte told ABC News.

'Once she said the word legal, I knew it wasn’t going to be fun.'

Police told the Bracamonte's there was nothing they could do.

'They told me it was now a civil matter,' Bracamonte said, 'and I have to legally evict her,' said Marcella Bracamonte to http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2014/06/25/upland-couple-says-their-live-in-nanny-wont-get-out/" rel="nofollow - 'So this lady is welcome inside my house, anytime she wants,  to eat my food anytime she wants and harass me basically. I’m now a victim in my home and it’s completely legal.'

John Moore of the Upland Police Department confirmed to ABC News they cannot do anything at the moment because, 'generally, once somebody has established residency, you have to go through a formal eviction process.'

Ralph Bracomnte said that his frustration is like a nightmare.

'Now, this person is in our house,' he said to CBS2, 'and I have to go to work. My kids are still here, my wife is still here. She towers over my wife, my kids. And I know there is nothing I can do about it.'

And as the Bracamonte's discovered, this was not the first time that Stretton has clashed in the courts with families - including her own.

She has been involved in 36 lawsuits, ensuring she has made California's Vexatious Litigant list, for abusing the system.

'Anyone who looks at her crooked, she sues,' said Bracamonte.

MailOnline visited Riverside County Court where several records of her cases are kept. Under her name are cases involving traffic accidents, estates, appliance purchases and even a rental car. Other claims involve disputes with family members.

In one claim from 1999 she claimed she was owed $5,000 from Taylor's Appliance Inc in Riverside because of ‘Damage to tile entry & kitchen floor & damage to refrigiator that occurred during delivery.’

The case was eventually dismissed in December 2000.

In a 2006 judgement she was deemed a ‘vexatious litigant’ because of her prolific filings.

Kimberly Whitcomb, her friend from the homeless shelter, revealed Stretton's marriage to her husband also named Michael ended acrimoniously over 10 years ago.

Kimberly said: ‘She was married and lived in Lake Forest where they raised their children. They had a nasty divorce it got really hostile and limiting and all his assets were put in somebody else’s name so she couldn’t get them.

‘They had two children one boy and one girl, the girl lives in Europe, she got a good degree and got married and lives in somewhere like Holland or France, she’s some kind of professor or something. She’s in her 20s, her son Michael is in his 30s.’

After her marriage fell apart, Stretton’s sisters had her evicted her from the condo where she moved.

‘From what she told me somehow her two sisters swindled her out of it,’ said Whitcomb. ‘Her dispute with her sisters was the only thing we ever talked about. It’s been years, she said she’s been homeless for about nine years and struggling to get this condo back through litigation.’

According to the friend, Stretton’s son would let her stay over sometimes (until he moved to Arizona in March) but she was largely homeless.

She said: ‘As far as I know they got along well, but it was a one-bedroom apartment and he was like, “Mom, I have a girlfriend, I need some privacy” kind of thing.

‘He was frustrated, didn’t know how to help her, he thought she should go and apply for housing assistance, do the senior route, but she was so determined to get her condo back you couldn’t tell her anything.’

Meanwhile, the Bracamontes’ next-door neighbor Linda Corbin, 57, said the nanny appeared unfriendly and elusive, and rarely went outside with the children.

'I’ve only saw her maybe once when I waved to her and she didn’t wave back,’ said Corbin. ,

When MailOnline visited the family's home on Friday they were inside with a crew from ABC News filming an exclusive interview and they were declining to speak to other reporters.

Marc Cohen, a newly hired lawyer representing the family, addressed the scrum of reporters and television cameras camped outside the house Thursday afternoon, saying that he will be going back to court next week to reapply to get Stretton evicted.

‘The notice that was served to Miss Stretton was defective, the complaint was also defective so they have to essentially start over at this point.

‘She’s a tenant, her belongings are here. She does have a right to possession; we would like to come to some sort of agreement regarding her moving out.

‘Legally, she does have a right to possession, to come in and out of the house, the landlord cannot cut off services, change the locks, anything like that.

‘The way an unlawful detainer (an eviction) works there either has to be a notice or grounds for terminating the tenancy. Here the tenancy was based on employment. Her employment has been terminated [and] at that point her tenancy has also been terminated with her employment, and we’re just asking her to leave.’

Asked how long it could take to get her out, Mr Cohen said: ‘It’s going to depend on how quickly the court process moves. Unlawful detainers, also known as evictions, can take anywhere from four to six weeks. If everything moves very quickly [but] if she really fights and gives us a hard time, it could take months.’

Mr Cohen revealed there was never a contract drawn up and the agreement between the Bracamontes and Stretton was verbal.

Asked how the family are coping, he said: ‘It’s very difficult having someone in your house who you don’t want there, who doesn’t want to leave and you can’t do something about it except going through the court process which takes a lot longer in California then people would like. Other states move much more quickly, states like Arizona usually you can get someone out in ten days.’

Cohen urged anyone thinking about hiring a live-in nanny off Craigslist to do their research and thorough background checks.

Many of the lawsuits had been filed by Stretton against her two sisters in an attempt to block the sale of family property.

Nanny From Hell Has a List of Demands for the Family Shes Terrorizing

Diane Stretton, the "monster nanny" who has become a family's worst nightmare by http://gawker.com/fired-nanny-refuses-to-leave-home-terrorizes-family-1596957228" rel="nofollow - refusing to move out of their house after being fired a month ago, has finally agreed to vacate the premises by July 6. That is, as long as the Bracamonte family meets her http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2676988/Nanny-hell-claims-family-tried-feed-DOG-FOOD-writes-long-list-conditions-meet-finally-moves-out.html" rel="nofollow - list of demands .

The live-in nanny's handwritten "agreement" requires the Bracamontes to leave their Upland, California, home between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., whether Stretton is in the house or not. It also asks them to give her money for food and access to amenities including TV, air conditioning, and Wi-Fi.

Here's her full list of six conditions, as published http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2676988/Nanny-hell-claims-family-tried-feed-DOG-FOOD-writes-long-list-conditions-meet-finally-moves-out.html" rel="nofollow - by the Daily Mail :

Nanny From Hell Has a List of Demands for the Family Shes Terrorizing

"Agreement: I will voluntarily agree to leave by 6pm on 7/6/14 if each and all of the following conditions are met:

1. My WiFi and TV and house air conditioning and water must be continuously on until I vacate. Electricity in my room must be operational.

2. Bathrooms must be stocked up with TP (toilet paper) and hand soap at all times.

3. Marcella and kids must vacate the premises between the hours of 8am and 5pm until 7/6/14 whether I elect to leave during the day or not.

4. Between the hours of 5pm and 8am, I have full access to my room, the garage bathroom and the areas of the house between the front door and my bedroom. I will not linger in these areas.

5. I'm either given access to healthy food or given $200 to eat out. Said access to food shall be limited to hours between 8am and 5pm."

6. Neither the front door nor my bedroom shall be locked in a manner than prevents me from entering. This means the chain must be off and the locks cannot be changed.

In exchanged [sic] for the above, I will agree not to seek any of my legal remedies for your past violations of our agreement."

It's not known whether the Bracamontes have actually agreed to her terms.

The family has considered evicting Stretton, 64, who does not pay rent, but they're worried they could face a fine of $1,000 for interfering with a tenant. Police have told them it's a civil matter, which is bad news for the family, as Stretton has a history of lawsuits so long that the state of California http://gawker.com/fired-nanny-will-move-out-after-everyone-calms-down-1598225214" rel="nofollow - considers her a "vexatious litigant."

The Bracamontes are leaving for a family wedding in Mexico this week, and are worried Stretton will lock them out, so they've asked family members to keep an eye on the house.

In http://ktla.com/2014/07/01/nightmare-nanny-open-up-in-exclusive-interview-claims-family-tried-to-feed-her-dog-food/" rel="nofollow - an interview with KTLA Tuesday, Stretton called Marcella Bracamonte a "drama queen," and claimed the family cut off her cable, AC, and Internet access after they fired her, and then tried to feed her dog food.

Stretton has been out of the home for the past few days, and was found living in her car outside a police station Friday.
