Wayne Harper (R-43) filed letter to judge in support of sexual predator Eric Ray

Salt Lake City - Senator Wayne Harper (R-43) joined a long line of insensitive legislators when he submitted a letter in support of convicted sexual predator Eric Ray, who will be sentenced Wednesday to 0-15 years in jail after he was found guilty of sexually assaulting a fifteen year old Utah County girl.  

Representative Harper, who is currently running for Utah Senate in District 6, wrote the following letter to Judge Lynn Davis in support of Ray:

Eric Ray was found guilty of forcibly sexually abusing a fifteen year old Springville girl in 2010, while he was married and living in Illinois.  He struck up a relationship with the girl through text messaging and electronic communications in 2008, and following a period that prosecutors classified as “grooming,” he flew to Utah in 2010 and assaulted her in a Provo hotel room.  Forcible sexual abuse is a second degree felony.

I'm sure he had good intentions, I mean he was obviously a good student while he was interning..
