California Father Charged with Torture, Forcing Large Family to Live in Squalor

Police found filthy conditions in the home shared by Rogers and Allen, Hurlbut said.

The investigation began with a report of a missing juvenile in the 2200 block of Fieldstone Court on March 31, according to Fairfield police.

After police found the child and returned them to his parents' home, they discovered that the couple were forcing their ten children to live in awful conditions.

But officers say the conditions between their first visit in March and their second on Friday had not improved, although they did conduct a search of the home.

Officers said the children were living in squalor and unsafe conditions.

Ina Rogers, 30, mother of the children, who was charged with child endangerment, denied the allegations in an interview on Monday.

The children were taken into protective custody by Solano County Child Welfare services and then placed in the care of other family members.

Rogers, who is now out of jail after posting $10,000 bail, talked to the reporters about the seizure of her 10 children. According to the police statement, they were victims of physical and emotional abuse.

Meanwhile, prosecutors in Riverside County have filed eight new charges against father David Turpin, accusing him of lying on government forms about the schooling of his children.

On Friday, at 8:30 a.m., detectives responded to the residence and arrested Jonathan Allen, 29.

Jonathan Allen, a father of eight of the children, was charged with seven counts of torture and nine counts of felony child abuse, by the Solano County District Attorney's Office.

The Fairfield Police Department is committed to ensuring the safety of our greatest asset and future, the children of our community. She was later released after posting $10,000 bail April 9.

But when police found the boy sleeping under a bush at a neighbor's house, they said, they discovered he had fled something far worse: He and nine siblings, ranging in age from 4 months to 12 years, were suffering child abuse beyond imagination, with puncture wounds, burns, bruising and other injuries inflicted "for sadistic purposes".

On Monday, Rogers gave reporters a tour of her house, while denying her husband abused the children.

She said she feels she's being judged for having so many children and choosing to home-school them.

"I strive and I pride myself on being a good parent to my children", Rogers told CNN affiliate KGO/KTXL. "He looks like a scary individual and that's why people are so quick to judge him".

She described herself as an "amazing mother" and her husband, Allen, as an "amazing person".

On the day the youngsters have been eliminated, the home was messy as a result of she had simply torn it aside in search of her lacking son, who was offended as a result of that they had taken away his pill laptop, Rogers stated. Some had visible scars, the authorities said, the Los Angeles Times reported. Messages left with the Solano County public defender's office were not returned. "However I do not know how one can hold it quiet when you could have 10 children".
