Father and mother tortured, neglected 10 children in Fairfield, police say

She said that she was the one who called authorities about her missing 12-year-old, The Washington Post reported.

"Officers situated unsafe and unsanitary dwelling circumstances together with rubbish and spoiled meals on the ground, animal and human feces and a considerable amount of particles making areas of the home unpassable", he stated.

All 10 children were taken into protective custody by Solano County Child Welfare Services. She was arrested March 31 and released on $10,000 bail. A Fairfield press release described the children as being "rescues from terrible living conditions" that were "in squalor and unsafe". "The investigation revealed a long and continuous history of severe physical and emotional abuse of the children".

"The children described incidents of intentional abuse resulting in puncture wounds, burns, bruising and injuries consistent with being shot with a BB or air soft type gun", the lieutenant said.

Allen was taken into custody and booked into jail on suspicion of seven counts of torture and nine counts of felony child abuse. He has pleaded not guilty.

She said at a news conference that "torture occurred in this house" and it was carried out "for sadistic purposes".

The alleged abuse was done with "sadistic goal", Henry said during a news conference.

"So objects were obviously moved while conducting that search but that was not the basis for the charges regarding the environment the children were in though", Hurlbut said. Rogers faces charges of child neglect and her husband Jonathan Allen has been charged with torture and child abuse.

Rogers could not be reached for comment Monday. Messages left with the Solano County public defender's office were not returned. Rogers denied the children were mistreatment.

Rogers said that the children are with Rogers' mother and sister. Eight of the ten children are Rogers' and Allen's biological children. "I've been in law enforcement since.well. more than 30 years ago", said Hurlbut. She later posted bail.

Rogers said the children slept in one bedroom because they were close; cots were stored in a bedroom closet. She said she felt judged for having so many children and for choosing to home-school them.

Throughout the tour, the four-bedroom home in Fairfield, 46 miles (74 kilometers) northeast of San Francisco, was messy with scuffed partitions and animal feces within the lavatory.

Neighbor Larry Magnaye stated he had no thought there have been 10 youngsters dwelling in the home throughout the road. "I was afraid I could not find him", she told KGO-TV.

A mother is denying abusing her 10 children, after police said they were rescued from what they describe as "horrible living conditions" in a Fairfield, Calif., home. She added she was "horrified" by the statements from the children. She said that they had a baby when they first moved in and another baby late previous year.

Ina Rogers told reporters Monday that she called authorities in March after her 12-year-old son didn't come home.

"My husband has a lot of tattoos". "He looks like a scary individual and that's why people are so quick to judge him".

"But my husband is an awesome person".

Peggy Allen, the mother of Jonathan Allen, said she had talked to Rogers about the condition of the home, saying it was important to keep a clean house.
