Dad of 10 charged with domestic violence in 2011

Ina Rogers center appears in Solano County Superior Court in Fairfield CA

The mother of 10 children removed from her home by authorities, who allege that numerous children were subject to torture, was charged Wednesday with nine felony allegations of felony child abuse and was taken into custody.

Ten children found living in squalid conditions in a California home were waterboarded, shot at with crossbows and had scalding water poured over them by their mother and her partner, authorities said Wednesday.

In a press release Monday, Lt. Greg Hurlbut from the Fairfield Police Department stated that officers visited the residence after locating one of the family's children, a 12-year-old boy, who had been reported missing.

Once they found the child, they searched the home due to concerns for the safety and health of the other children. Rogers said she works the graveyard shift as an EKG technician at a heart monitoring company and that Allen is a tattoo artist.

This is a developing story. Rogers already faces misdemeanor allegations of child endangerment, for which she was free on bail. The 10 children were taken into protective custody by Solano County Child Welfare services and then placed in the care of other family members.

On Tuesday, Rogers was charged with nine counts of felony child abuse in addition to a misdemeanor charge of child cruelty that she already faced. It was unclear whether she was immediately taken into custody because reporters were ordered to leave the courtroom. He is now being held on a $5.2 million bail.

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.

The prosecutor alleged the mother assisted her husband in the abuse by telling their children not to report injuries that included broken arms. The kids described "incidents of intentional abuse resulting in puncture wounds, burns, bruising and injuries consistent with being shot with a pellet gun or a BB gun", Hurlbut said.

In the six weeks since that arrest, police said, authorities have interviewed the eight older children and learned more disturbing details about their lives, which led to authorities to arrest Allen and to bring more charges against Rogers.

Dad of 10 charged with domestic violence in 2011

Allen, the 29-year-old father of eight of the children, pleaded not guilty Monday to charges of felony torture and abuse.

Records obtained by the San Francisco Chronicle show Allen's abuse allegations date back to late 2011. They were also physically abused for a "sadistic goal", said Solano County Chief Deputy District Attorney Sharon Henry.

But the mother, free on bail since early April, held a sort of news conference of her own Monday.

Allen's mother, Peggy Allen, told the AP she had spoken to her son about the importance of housekeeping and Christian values - but that Allen avoided her and kept his relatives away from the children. "Our whole goal in this is to just make sure that the children are in a safe place and that they have the resources to help them".

"We're a Christian family and Jonathan has not been raised that way", she said. He was booked into the Solano County Jail for 9 counts of felony torture and 6 counts of felony child abuse.

Wanda Rogers, the children's maternal grandmother, said Allen "worships the devil" and used the children as "sacrifice".

He said he wants to tell the children he loves them.

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.
