In an effort to save the foster boy from reliving his horror at the abuse meted out to him by foster father, Dorian Harper, a plea was offered. Harper pleaded guilty to six felonies and one misdemeanor to avoid a trial. In so doing, he will be serving about half the time that he would if the case would have gone to trial and jury would have convicted him.

Unspeakable abuse was meted out by former emergency room nurse, Dorian Harper. He and his live-in girlfriend, Wanda Larson, have been fostering children for years. They have had 36 children in their care since they began offering their home.

There were tears in the courtroom as those listening were subjected to hearing about the abuse. The child’s birth mother, Maria Harris, says “He has scars that will never heal.”
