Fairfield neighbor shocked to hear of abuse allegations against 10 children

Police said they responded on March 31 to a report of a missing 12-year-old child in the 2200 block of Fieldstone Court.

Officers found the youngster a short time later "asleep under a bush in a yard of a nearby residence", according to Hurlbut.

Sharon Henry, chief deputy district attorney for Solano County, said she was "horrified" by the statements from the children and that torture was carried out in the house "for sadistic purposes". They were tortured for "a sadistic objective".

During their search, they reportedly discovered 10 other children-ranging in age from four months to 11 years old-living in "horrible conditions". According to the police statement, they were victims of physical and emotional abuse.

The mother, Ina Rogers, 30, of Fairfield, was arrested and booked in the Solano County jail on suspicion of child neglect, and the 10 children were placed in the protective custody of Solano County Child Welfare Services, police said.

The father of those children, Jonathan M. Allen, 29, of Fairfield, pleaded not guilty Monday in Solano County Superior Court to seven counts of torture and nine counts of child cruelty with the possibility of injury.

Following the sentence in the Turpin case, California authorities have identified yet another example of child torture.

Ina Rogers, Allen's 30-year-old wife was also taken into custody but released shortly after posting her $10,000 bail. "I strive and pride myself on being a good parent to my children".

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 absolutely not, my husband is an incredible person.

According to ABC News, Rogers said she was first pregnant at 16-years-old and has since had 11 children, eight of whom are with Allen. "And so I've had many people question my right to parent and I feel this whole situation has exploded".

The kids didn't require medical consideration once they have been eliminated. But stories about abuse came out gradually over the past six weeks and eight of the children told professionals about incidents dating back several years, authorities said.

As for the home's appalling appearance, Mrs. Rogers stated that it's hard to keep everything neat and tidy with ten kids around, several cats, a dog, and, a goldfish on top. Kids get rebellious and that's all that happened, ' Rogers said.

Rogers told the media that the reason the home was in disarray was because she tore up her house looking for her missing child.

Rogers said the children slept in one bedroom because they were close; cots were stored in a bedroom closet.

'The conditions they saw in my home was me tearing up my house because my son was missing.

Hurblut said he believed the children had been home-schooled, but couldn't say if authorities had been contacted in the past about their living conditions. "I am not going to allow this to break us and I am not going to stop fighting", Rogers said. "Once that fear sets in, you don't know what to do so in that moment", she said.
