I-Team: Woman serving time for child abuse has book to fix foster system being sold online

News

A woman who wrote a book with advice on how to fix the foster care system has also been convicted of child abuse.

When the I-Team first started investigating the issue surrounding Janet Solander, one major web retailer pulled her book, but not everyone.

Solander is serving time in a Nevada state prison, but more than two months after she was sentenced, her book is still being sold by some online retailers.

Her book is called “Foster care: How to fix this corrupted system.”  The book appears to have bee self-published in 2013 through iUniverse.

The I-Team did some digging and found that the book was still being sold on Amazon, Walmart, and Barnes & Noble. 

The I-Team reached out to these companies on Wednesday, and by the I-Team’s deadline on Thursday, an Amazon spokesman responded saying that the book was no longer available on the company’s website.

In her book, Solander is described as a nurse and advocate for foster children.  It is unclear where any of the proceeds from her books sales are going.

The I-Team closely followed her criminal case and discovered that she was not a nurse.

Solander was convicted of beat and burning her three adopted daughters.  She also limited their food and bathroom use and did much more.

Solander was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 35 years.
