The matter unfolded March 31 when the oldest child, a 12-year-old boy described as developmentally delayed with the capacity of an 8-year-old, disappeared from his house in the 2000 block of Fieldstone Court. There was so much debris that some areas of the home were unaccessible, according to Hurlbut.

Sharon Henry, chief deputy district attorney of the Solano County district attorney's office has said that "I'm horrified by the statements that were given by these children".

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

Lt. Fairfield Police Department Greg Hurlbut said the children were living in unsafe living conditions. She also claimed that she homeschooled all her children. All 10 children were initially taken into protective custody by Solano County Child Welfare Services.

On May 11, detectives with the Fairfield Police Department arrested Jonathan Allen, a 29-year-old Fairfield resident.

In a separate case, prosecutors in Riverside County, have filed eight new charges against a father accused of shackling and starving some of his 13 children, alleging that he lied on government forms about their schooling.

Allen is now being held on $1.5 million bail at the Solano County Jail.

Their mom, Rogers, was arrested and booked into Solano County Jail on suspicion of child endangerment.

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

Police said Monday they had removed 10 children from a squalid California home and charged their father with torture and their mother with neglect after an investigation revealed a lengthy period of severe physical and emotional abuse.

She said the "squalor" officers saw while investigating came from her tearing her house apart as she searched for her child.

Rogers told NBC Bay Area her 10 kids slept in one room because they wanted to, adding the home is messy due to a police search.

She said: "There's no broken bones, there is no major scars, nothing". Rogers was released after posting $10,000 bail.

She gave reporters a tour of her house on Monday, saying that the police had left a mess when searching the home. "I work graveyard." Rogers said.

Reporters noted that during the tour, however, the house was still filthy, with scuffed walls and animal feces in the bathroom, according to the AP.

Weeks after Jonathan Allen's arrest, Fairfield Police brought new and horrific details to light about Jonathan's parenting methods. "He looks like a scary individual, and that's why people are so quick to judge him", Rogers said.

Police in Fairfield north of San Francisco said Monday that the children range in age from 4 months to 12 years. One neighbor, Larry Magney, who lives across the street, said Allen and Rogers moved in about a year ago. "But absolutely not. My husband is an wonderful person". "Not one of my kids even has a cavity", she told reporters a few hours after Jonathan Allen was arrested. Once that fear sets in, you don't know what to do'.
