The children in the infamous Perris torture case have now been released from medical facilities. If you recall, David and Louise Turpin, were arrested on multiple counts for bringing harm onto their 13 children. Six of the younger children were placed in Corona Regional Medical Center and have now been moved to two separate foster homes within Riverside County.
"On behalf of all of us at CRMC, we wish these brave siblings continued strength as they take the next steps in their journey," says Corona Regional Medical Center CEO Mark Uffer.
Although the Turpins claimed to have homeschooled the children, a source stated it was indeed "a sham, a way for them to get money from the county and the state."
The children lacked the appropriate education levels for their age. The 17-year-old child who escaped and initially reported the Turpin parents, only had a first-grade reading level.
David and Louise Turpin of Perris, California were arrested in January 2018. They had subjected their children to mental and physical abuse, starved them, and only allowing them to shower once a year. The eldest of the Turpin Children was 29-years old, but only weighed just 82 pounds.
Both parents have pleaded not guilty to more than 40 charges including torture, false imprisonment, abuse of a dependent adult and child abuse.
Bail is set at $12 million for each for David and Louise.
The children seem to be adjusting well and although are separated, they keep in contact with each other via skype.
