LITTLE ROCK, AR - A mother makes an emotional plea in an attempt to keep a man convicted of sexually assaulting her daughter behind bars.
"The fear is something that's unbearable and something that no one else can understand," said Tammy Harper as she read a letter written to the arkansas board of parole from her daughter. "If he does get paroled I would constantly worry and even be scared to be by myself."
In 2003, Brian Floss pleaded guilty to second degree sexual assault. Tammy Harper says he raped her 8-year-old daughter and several other girls in a Fordyce Elementary Classroom.
"This is something that she will live with for the rest of her life," Harper told the board. "She'll heal from it, but she'll never forget it."
Neither will Harper. This is the fifth year
in a row she's gone before the board
"Me as a mother, all I can do is beg and plead with you to keep him in the penitentiary."
Harper says she'd come to parole hearings every day if she had to to keep Floss locked up, but its not just for her daughter.
"The danger of him getting out and hurting another child and another family having to go through what we have, that's a nightmare to even think about," she said.
The Arkansas Board of Parole will make a decision on Brian Floss' parole as early as February 1st. Attempts to reach Floss' family members for comment were unsuccessful.
