Leo pleaded guilty to conspiring to commit and committing a series of racially motivated assaults against Black men in Maine on February 25, 2020. After a three-day trial in March 2020, Leo's co-conspirator and uncle Maurice Diggins was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison along with three years of supervised release for his roles in each crime.

"She's finally stood up to be counted. But it's too late," Mr Smith told reporters.

She had been found to be living in squalid conditions in her own home, largely confined to a cane chair, while under the care of the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

In the period leading up to the death, Maione had worked as her carer.

September 14, 2021 — A West Los Angeles man pleaded guilty today to federal charges stemming from a scheme that used a series of corporations he controlled to fraudulently obtain approximately million in loans from COVID- relief programs, some of which he used on gambling excursions to Las Vegas and transferred to his stock trading accounts. Andrew Marnell who resides in the Beverly Grove neighborhood, pleaded guilty to one count of bank fraud and one count of money laundering.

As well as the SA police investigation, the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commissioner Graeme Head launched an independent inquiry by former Federal Court judge Alan Robertson, with his report last year essentially clearing the commission in how it exercised its regulatory functions.

Mr Robertson said on the question of whether it should have acted earlier to ban Maione, the commission had no information to take such action before Ms Smith's death.

Mr Smith said he hoped his niece, who had battled hard against her disability all her life, would be remembered as the "bright and cheery" person she was.

"She never ever bemoaned her situation. She never complained once," he said.

At an earlier court appearance, prosecutors had flagged seeking to revoke Maione's bail but the issue was not raised on Monday.

She will return to court on December 3.
