Los Angeles Hospital Director Sentenced for Molesting Foster Son

Posted By Criminal Defense || 25-Mar-2011

A former state mental hospital director in Long Beach was recently sentenced to 248 years in prison for molesting his adopted foster son for over 10 years as part of what prosecutors claimed was a pattern of abuse that spanned four decades and ensnared at least a dozen young boys, many of whom appeared in court as grown men to confront him.

Using an "adoption book" provided by the county's foster care system, Foulk selected the victim when he was 8 and molested him until he ran away from home at age 21.  The victim testified that his father told him the abuse was how a man shows his love.  The young man was one of two foster boys whom Foulk adopted.

Foulk, who has repeatedly denied the allegations, testified that his adopted son had a history of lying. His attorney told the judge that there was no evidence to back the victim's claims and reminded the court that Foulk had no prior criminal record.

The judge called Foulk a monster before handing him the maximum sentence.  He was convicted of twenty counts of Forcible Oral Copulation, nine counts of Sodomy and two counts of Lewd Acts for abuse between 1992 and 2001.
