Melvin L. Morse is seen in an undated file photo provided by the Delaware State Police. Morse, 58, of Georgetown, Del., and his wife, Pauline Morse, were arrested Tuesday, Aug. 7, 2012 by Delaware State Police and charged with recklessly endangering their two daughters, including the use of a form of discipline that police say the man called “waterboarding.” Morse says he is being persecuted by authorities because of a 2009 doctor abuse scandal in the state. Dr. Melvin Morse tells The Associated Press that he is the victim of what he called hysteria following the prosecution of pediatrician Earl Bradley. Bradley is serving 14 life sentences for abusing scores of his young patients over more than a decade. (AP Photo/Delaware State Police, File)
