  • California prosecutors allege 10 children in filthy home were waterboarded, hit with crossbows, BBs, kicked and punched.

As the investigation continues, Henry said there's a "good chance" Rogers could face additional charges.

"On a continuous basis the children were getting punched, strangled, bitten, shot with weapons such as crossbows and bb guns, hit with weapons such as sticks and bats, subjected to "waterboarding" and having scalding water poured on them", Solano County Deputy District Attorney Veronica Juarez wrote in the bail request. The judge denied reducing it. VIDEO: Inside Fairfield home where police say kids lived in "squalor " The DA's Office says Rogers allowed her husband, Jonathan Allen, to inflict torturous acts on her 10 children for years in their Fairfield house. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges. Allen's bail is set at more than$5 million. Rogers faces charges of child neglect and her husband Jonathan Allen has been charged with torture and child abuse. The father, 29-year-old Jonathan Allen, was also arrested and sent to the same facility where he pled "not guilty" to the charges against him.

The missing 12-year-old was found sleeping under a bush nearby, but officers chose to contact the Solano County Child Welfare Office which removed the children from the house.

Authorities on Monday for the first time detailed the disturbing conditions of the couple's home, which has shocked neighbors in the tree-lined cul-de-sac who said they did not know 10 children were living in the house.

"The children appeared to be skittish and spoke with speech impediments", Juarez added.

It's unclear whether any California government agencies had an opportunity to intervene in the years authorities claim 10 children suffered "horrific" abuse inside their suburban home.

All 10 children were placed into the care of the Solano County Child Welfare office.

Prosecutors alleged Allen used a.22 caliber revolver in some of the crimes. He was sentenced to 180 days and three years of probation.

The other charges were dropped.

Rogers said she works as an EKG technician at a heart monitoring company and her husband is a tattoo artist.

Rogers said she homeschooled the children, but there is no record she registered with the state as required by law.

Allen said the kids have been brainwashed into thinking they were abused.

Solano County prosecutor Sharon Henry had previously said the children described "sadistic" treatment to professional counselors since they were taken from their parents' home.

Both parents have denied any wrongdoing, saying the children were found with wounds "because they're kids", and blaming the squalid conditions on their dog.

Fairfield police Lt. Greg Hurlbut said the children are still in the custody of other family members and "seem to be improving", adding that he has not had a case in his decades as a police officer "where we charged someone with torture of their own children, if that tells you something".

The Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District had no record that the students attended any school in the district, said Tim Goree, a district spokesman. The 12-year-old was soon found and returned to the home at 2020 Fieldstone Court, which authorities entered and deemed an unsafe environment for children.

Authorities stated they subsequently arrested and booked Rogers into jail for youngster neglect.

On the day the children were removed, the house was messy because she had just torn it apart looking for her missing son, who was angry because his parents had taken away his tablet computer, Rogers said. "I would absolutely not abuse my children or sit back and let them be abused and the truth will come out because it has to".

Rogers said her home was in disarray because of the search for her missing son.
