Officials removed the boy from the home as well as four other children, ages 7 to 14, whom Larson had adopted. Larson was the 11-year-olds legal guardian, authorities said. Employees knew Larson worked there; she oversaw investigations of child abuse complaints. The Union Academy supervisor said she tried talking to the state to go over the head of the local agency. Larson was placed on disciplinary suspension on May 29, 2012, county records show. Larson and Harper remain in Union County jail.

Michael's caregivers were Wanda Sue Larson and Dorian Harper.
Larson was a Union County Child Protective Services Social Work Supervisor. On March 31, 2015 Larson also pleaded guilty to two counts of felony negligent child abuse inflicting serious injury, one count of misdemeanor false imprisonment, and one count of failure to discharge her duties as a county employee tasked with protecting children. Larson was sentenced to a maximum of seventeen months. After receiving credit for the sixteen and one-half months she had already been in jail, Larson was released just four days after entering her guilty plea. According to news reports, Larson apologized when she appeared in court to enter her guilty plea, "I should have done more and I apologize." When asked to comment on the decision to accept plea deals for Larson and Harper, the Union County District Attorney's Office said it made that decision "for the victim's sake, so he wouldn't have to relive the abuse." When asked to comment on the decision to accept plea deals for Larson and Harper, the Union County District Attorney's Office said it made that decision "for the victim's sake, so he wouldn't have to relive the abuse. Perhaps not publicly, or vividly, or consciously, but the emotional and psychological scars of Larson's and Harper's conduct will remain with Michael for the rest of his life. Michael's mother, Maria, also expressed dissatisfaction with the plea deals. She said, "I wish people would have thought about . . . his feelings, his future. She also told reporters that Michael was "mad" and that he felt that Larson "deserve[d] more time. Looking to the future, she said, "It's going to be a rough road. [. . .] She's getting out, what, 18 months? And he's going to have the rest of his life." Justice for All and the Monroe community were justifiably upset with the disparity between Larson's sentence and Harper's sentence.

Wanda Sue Larson, a former Union County social worker who had been caring for the boy, agreed to a plea deal and was sentenced to 17 months in prison.
She was released in April. Larson was charged with not seeking medical treatment for him. According to the sentencing report, the children in the home gave investigators details of what went on there, and they said Larson wasn't there to see much of it. Larson had been the boy's legal guardian for years and was a supervisor with the Union County Department of Social Services. She had adopted four other children who were in the home when the couple was arrested. Those children, ranging in age from 8 to 15, have been placed in social services custody in another county.
