Fairfield Father Charged With 9 Counts Of Torturing Children

Ten children are removed from a squalid California home as their parents are charged with neglect and torture

The children's father, Jonathan Allen, was arraigned Monday on felony torture and child abuse charges and the mother, Ina Rogers, faces child neglect charges. She says accusations that her ten children have been tortured are "ludicrous".

Investigators say nine other children, ranging in age from 4 months to 11 years old, were living in "squalor", in "unsafe" conditions.

Rogers was arrested and launched after posting $10,000 bail on April 9. Police say the investigation began when they searched the family home after one of the children was reported missing. Officers then conducted a "health and safety search", which led to the arrest of Rogers that day and the removal of 10 children from the home.

Fairfield police Lt. Greg Hurlbut said Monday the abuse was revealed in interviews with the children over the past six weeks. "Once that fear sets in, you don't know what to do so in that moment", she said.

"I have not had a case where we charge someone with torture of their own children if that tells you something".

Investigators from Child Welfare Services, Solano County District Attorney's Office, Fairfield Police Department's Family Violence Unit allege there has been a long and continuous history of severe physical and emotional abuse of the children. All 10 of the children were placed into Solano County's Child Welfare Services. She felt she was being judged for having so many children and having chosen to home-school them.

Aleida Quartman, 23, who said she works with Rogers, said she spoiled her children and the messy house was just life with children, cats, a dog and fish.

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

Jonathan Allen, 28, the father of the children, has pleaded not guilty to seven counts of torture and nine counts of felony child abuse.

The children did not require medical attention when they were removed.

"Officers situated unsafe and unsanitary dwelling circumstances together with rubbish and spoiled meals on the ground, animal and human feces and a considerable amount of particles making areas of the home unpassable", he stated.

The children were taken into protective custody and their mother, 30-year-old Ina Rogers, was soon booked into Solano County Jail on child neglect charges. I strive and I pride myself on being a good parent to my children, My husband has a lot of tattoos.

Child protection officials made one prior visit to the home several years ago, Rogers said. "He looks like a scary individual, and that's why people are so quick to judge him", Rogers said.

Ina Rogers told reporters Monday that she called authorities in March after her 12-year-old son didn't come home.

The house has four bedrooms and is located 46 miles northeast of San Francisco. "But absolutely not. My husband is an unbelievable person". My husband is an unbelievable person and I am an awesome mother.
