Steven Marler of Casper, Wyoming, is facing 26 criminal charges, including 20 counts of sexually abusing children during his time as a foster father over a 10-year period.

His wife, Kristen, also faced a charge of misdemeanor child endangerment.

The couple had previously received recognition for their work as foster parents, but their foster daughter has since alleged shocking levels of abuse. (Trending: Joe Biden Sets New Presidential Record)

“Honesty, integrity and compassion are key traits of Mr. and Mrs. Marler and extend to their biological children, who are described as equally accepting and responsible as their parents,” the federal Administration for Children and Families stated in 2013.

“The Marlers’ motivation for becoming foster parents was to support biological parents who are unable to care for their children,” it said.

“They accomplish this by encouraging and working directly with biological and extended families to help them toward reunification,” the agency added.

“They have an exceptional ability and willingness to respect the children’s relationship with their parents.”

“Kambria alleges that Kristen and Steve began withholding food from the children as a form of punishment,” KTWO wrote of one foster daughter. “She would get so hungry she would eat dog food and says she even took raw meat off of animals hanging in the garage,” it added.

“I’m pretty sure all of us have had concussions,” Kambria said. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Jan. 19.
