Teacher convicted of rape up for parole, victim speaks at hearing

Posted: Updated:

(KATV) LITTLE ROCK - A man convicted of raping his third grade student more than a decade ago is up for early parole from prison. 

Brian Floss' 15 year sentence will be complete in 4 years. The victim's mother has stood before the parole board every year and read a letter from her daughter asking that floss serve his full term. Wednesday, Brittney Humphrey represented herself for the first time.

Tammy Harper said, "I would like to introduce to you to a very courageous young lady, my daughter Brittney Humphrey."

Brittney was molested daily, raped by her third grade teacher, Brian Floss at Wallace Elementary in Fordyce.

Brittney told the parole board she is a normal 20 year old junior in college but has flashbacks everyday of being told she was being loved while he was touching her. "Although Brian has affected my life tremendously, I have chosen to not let it control my life."

She is studying to become a counselor, to help others like her. Brittney explained she wants to prevent Floss from hurting more kids. "With all my heart, I do not want anyone or their family to have to go through what I have. I have fears of Brian Floss getting out of jail and hurting me or my family again. One of my biggest fears is him hurting another child."

Brittney's family knows Brian Floss will be released one day, they just don't want that day to be because of early parole.

Her mom, Tammy Harper adds, "Fifteen years wasn't near enough for what Brian Floss did and I plan on being here every year to see that he stays behind bars."

Channel Seven will let you know when the parole board reaches their decision. They have already heard from Brian Floss. Channel Seven reached out to him for a comment but he denied the request.
