Mother calls child abuse accusations over 10 children 'ludicrous'

Father Allegedly Abused And Tortured His 10 Kids In Filthy California Home

Parents who teach their own children are required to register with the state, but the state does not approve, monitor or inspect them.

"My husband is an unbelievable person", she said.

Rogers said the children slept in one bedroom because they were close.

After weeks of interviews the Solano County District Attorney's Office charged the children's father Jonathon Allen with 7 counts of torture and 9 counts of child abuse. He is being held in lieu of $5.2 million bail.

Allen said his children had no marks of abuse when they were taken by Solano County Child Welfare Services on March 31.

Fairfield Police Lt. Greg Hurlbut said during a press conference Monday that there was "garbage and spoiled food on the floor", as well as "animal and human feces and a large amount of debris making large amounts of the house unpassable". The children were "living in squalor and unsafe conditions", police say.

Officers found nine more children, ranging in age from four months to eleven-years-old.

The children were taken into protective custody and their mother, 30-year-old Ina Rogers, was soon booked into Solano County Jail on child neglect charges.

Hurlbut said police opened an investigation and were able to interview the children, who detailed disturbing incidents of abuse that went back several years.

Sheriff's and prosecutors say the children were rescued from a filthy house in March and had suffered puncture wounds, burns, bruising and injuries consistent with being shot with a pellet gun.

Sharon Henry, chief deputy district attorney for Solano County, said she was "horrified by the statements that were given by these children".

Jonathan Allen's mother described her son as a private person, who grew into a caring and responsible adult. "He had a devil room, a devil room that he called a meditation room", Wanda Rogers said. "My kids were placed back with me", she told reporters. "I am not an animal, I am not a torturer, and I'm not a monster".

"I'm not 100 percent flawless, I'm not ideal". No one is ideal.

"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.

He added that he is a follower of Kabbalah, which stems from Jewish mysticism. "That's not what I do", he said.

"There's no broken bones". "My kids get bumped and bruised and scratched because they're kids, but that's it".

The parents waved when leaving the driveway, he said, but never saw the children in the yard or heard them playing in the backyard pool.

"My children are my life", she said.

A Fairfield mother on the defense as her husband is charged with torturing her 10 young children. Fairfield police did not immediately respond to questions about this visit.

"They seem happy. They seem healthy", Peggy Allen told FOX40. "We're trying to help them get through that. We hope that the children will be together and far away from these awful conditions that they were kept in by the ones who were supposed to love and protect them from harm", his aunt and uncle said in the statement.

It's still unclear whether any California government agencies had an opportunity to intervene in the years authorities claim the children were abused inside their home in suburban Fairfield, about 46 miles (74 kilometers) northeast of San Francisco. Prosecutors would not elaborate on the accusations or children's injuries.
