"Ten Children Rescued from Horrible Living Conditions" from Fairfield, CA Police Department

Ina Rogers and her husband Jonathan Allen 29 were arrested on March 31 at their home in the town of Fairfield north of San Francisco after police responded to a call about a missing 12-year-old child

Ina Rogers and her husband Jonathan Allen 29 were arrested on March 31 at their home in the town of Fairfield north of San Francisco after police responded to a call about a missing 12-year-old child

Citing the serious charges and allegations and the children's injuries, Pendergast set bail at $495,000.

All 10 children were taken into protective custody.

Rogers says she home-schooled the children, but the Fairfield home was not registered as a private school and neither were three prior addresses in Fairfield and Vallejo, according to the California Department of Education.

Deputy District Attorney Veronica Juarez wrote that Rogers assisted in the abuse of the children by her husband, Jonathan Allen.

"It was obviously unsanitary and not a condition that children - or any human probably - should be living in at the time", Fairfield police Lt. Greg Hurlbut said Monday.

The initial complaint against Allen said he meant to "cause cruel and extreme pain and suffering for the goal of revenge, extortion, persuasion and for a sadistic objective, inflict great bodily injury".

"Instead of taking care of them, she has abused them, if not assisting her husband in torture", Juarez said. "I am an awesome mother". Allen is being held in jail with bail set at $5.2 million.

The authorities' involvement began March 31 when Fairfield police were called to find a missing 12-year-old child.

In an emotional and sometimes rambling interview, Allen said the allegations that he sadistically tortured his children were false and he believes the children were "manipulated" by "brainwashed" police. Once they introduced they youngster house, officers searched the residence "on account of considerations for the security and well being of the kid and the kid's siblings". A bathroom was covered from wall-to-wall in animal droppings.

Authorities say the children's father, 29-year-old Jonathan Allen, has pleaded not guilty to torture and child cruelty charges.

Solano County court records show that Allen was charged with four felonies in 2011, including corporal injury, assault with a firearm and criminal threats in a case involving his wife, identified by her initials, I.R. The mother was released after posting a $10,000 bail.

Her husband, Jonathan Allen, faces multiple charges of torture and felony child abuse. "This case came in as a child endangerment, based upon the conditions of the house".

Stories about the alleged abuse came out gradually in interviews with the children over the past six weeks, and eight of the children told professionals about incidents dating back several years, authorities said.

Prosecutors said in the motion to increase Rogers's bail Wednesday that the children were also getting punched, strangled and bitten, shot with crossbows, were subjected to "waterboarding" and having scalding hot water poured on them.

"The children appeared to be skittish and spoke with speech impediments", she said.

"I love my children with all my heart", Allen said through tears, dressed in striped jailhouse-issued clothing.

Allen told a KCRA TV reporter on Monday that the children were the victims of brainwashing into thinking they had been abused.

Prosecutors alleged Allen used a.22-calibre revolver in some of the crimes.

As part of a deal with prosecutors in 2011 he pleaded no contest to corporal injury and was jailed for 180 days and three years of probation.

"My kids get bumped and bruised and scratched because they're kids, but that's it", she told reporters in front of her house, according to the Associated Press.

She said: "There's no broken bones, there is no major scars, nothing".

She said she felt unfairly judged for her lifestyle. Bail for a California mother of 10 children who officials say suffered long-term abuse was set at almost $500,000 after the judge said she remains a danger to the kids.
