In September 2019 Timothy and Diane Combs were sentenced to time in prison for abusing their foster children in their Dearborn County, Indiana home. Diane saw to it that a diaper filled with human feces was placed in a child's mouth for potty punishment.
Both of the despicable foster parents pled guilty.
Diane pled guilty to charges of aggravated battery and was sentenced to 20 years in prison. Timothy pleaded guilty to three counts of battery and is serving 13 years in prison.
The abuse the children suffered was recorded on a cell phone by an teenage foster child. The video shows a 4-year-old and 6-year-old standing next to the recliner Diane was sitting in when she asked the 6-year-old if his pull-up pants were dry because if not, the boy would be in trouble.
Diane then touches the boy’s bottom and slapped him with a force that knocked him to the ground. Diane made the boy open his mouth and put a diaper in it, the diaper was filled with human feces.
Timothy is seen on video picking up and dropping a child on the floor, while then kicking the child.
The teenager told officials about the video. Timothy and Diane were arrested in September 2018 and then sentenced to prison a year later in September 2019.
