Police arrested the father, 29-year-old Jonathan Allen, on felony counts of child abuse and torture.
Fairfield police removed the children from the house March 31 after Rogers reported her oldest child was missing, saying he had run away after she took away his tablet computer as punishment. Human and animal feces, urine, garbage and rotten food littered the floor, while heaps of debris blocked off certain areas of the house, the police statement said. Solano County Public defenders office did not respond immediately to request for information on legal representation for Allen.
The man, David Turpin, and his wife, Louise, previously pleaded not guilty to torture, child abuse and other charges in a case that has drawn global attention since the couple's 17-year-old daughter escaped the family's home in Perris, California, in January and called 911. Rogers was released after posting $10,000 bail April 9.

All 10 children, ranging in age from 4 months to 12 years, were taken into protective custody by the Solano County Child Welfare Services once the condition of the home was discovered. "He was the one playing video games with them and I was telling them we need to clean up and do chores". The children, authorities said, were home-schooled.

Rogers informed reporters she's shocked police had leveled essentially the most severe accusations in opposition to her husband, as he was not the disciplinarian of the household.
Rogers denied the allegations to reporters outside her home. Rogers says she got pregnant when she was 16 years old.
Throughout the tour, the four-bedroom home in Fairfield, 46 miles (74 kilometers) northeast of San Francisco, was messy with scuffed partitions and animal feces within the lavatory. All 10 children shared one bedroom, a sleeping arrangement that their mother said is what they wanted. The opposite rooms have been used as a master suite, playroom and meditation room. Rogers stated she works the graveyard shift as an EKG technician at a coronary heart monitoring firm and her husband is a tattoo artist.
"I'm easily judged because I'm 31 years old and I have 11 children", said Rogers. She didn't say why.

"Not only do I have 11 children and I'm 30 years old, but I also homeschool all of my children and people don't agree with that lifestyle and so I've had many people question my right to parent and I just feel like this whole situation was exploded", Rogers said.
She is estranged from her son and he has kept his family away from the children, she said.
