Sounding like something straight out of one of those bizarrely written reality shows, this week, saw news of 13 kids being held captive finally come to light. In the revelation, David and Louise Turpin will each reportedly get 12 counts of torture; abuse of dependent adults, child abuse, neglect, and entrapment. David Turpin, per police reports, will also get an additional charge (a felony) of a lewd act on a child under the age of 14.
All of the charges will at least bring 90+ years in prison if not a life sentence. ABC News notes that during a press conference yesterday, local police, revealed a few more harrowing details about the situation. Per police, the children were only able to bathe once a year — furthermore only being able to watch to a certain spot on their body. If they attempted to wash other places, they, were chained and beaten by their parents.
