Ulrich Klopfer, 73, is accused of failing to report suspected child abuse after giving a 13-year old girl an abortion in 2012.

The man at the center of an investigation that blew the lid off several Indiana abortionists' concealment of statutory rape cases has been sentenced to a year in prison, according to the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette.

Ronte Lequan Latham was charged with child molestation for having sex with a 13-year-old after a pro-life campaign drew attention to Dr. Ulrich George Klopfer's habitual refusal to comply with Indiana state law designed to catch child predators.

Latham was also sentenced to three years of probation, and must pay $600 restitution.

Klopfer performed a suction curettage abortion on a young black girl at Fort Wayne Women's Health Organization on February 7, 2012. The baby was at 11 weeks gestation. The girl had not yet reached eighth grade.

Under Indiana law, Klopfer was required to report cases of suspected sexual abuse within three days. He instead reported the abortion nearly six months later, on July 25.

Allen County Right to Life Executive Director Cathie Humbarger and sidewalk counselor Evelyn Witte each filed complaints with Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller and the Indiana Medical Licensing Board over the abortionist's failure to act.

Officers with the Special Victims Unit raided Klopfer's Women's Pavilion abortion facility in South Bend, Indiana on March 20, photocopying records. They found that he failed to report two other minor girls' abortions within the required time.

The investigation that followed discovered that Latham met the young girl while working at Weisser Park Center and later had sexual relations with her, but claimed he was not aware of her age.

In September, the attorney general of Indiana, Greg Zoeller, asked a state board to review the medical licenses of three other abortionists, Dr. Resad Pasic, Dr. Kathleen Glover, and Dr. Raymond Robinson, in addition to Klopfer, who are allegedly “in violation of similar record-keeping and advice and consent laws regarding abortion procedures.”
