"On a continuous basis the children were getting punched, strangled, bitten, shot with weapons such as crossbows and bb guns, hit with weapons such as sticks and bats, subjected to "waterboarding" and having scalding water poured on them", Solano County Deputy District Attorney Veronica Juarez wrote in the bail request. Father Jonathan Allen, 29, has pleaded not guilty to multiple charges of torture and felony child abuse.
Judge William J. Pendergast agreed with the deputy district attorney's request to set bail at $495,000 United States, saying Rogers "may not be a danger to the public at large, but these charges make clear she is a danger to the children". It is unclear whether Rogers was immediately put in custody.
An investigation "revealed an extended and steady historical past of extreme bodily and emotional abuse of the kids", authorities stated. Rogers told KABC-TV that she and her husband were being judged for his tattoos, and her choice to homeschool her children. The children have since moved in with family members.
A Fairfield mother accused of abusing her 10 children is now in jail after a court appearance on Wednesday. "She has other motives and has conjured up these ideas of torture", Rogers said. "I am an awesome mother". Police removed the children, ages four months to 12 years, and arrested Rogers on suspicion of neglect. He was ordered held in lieu of about US$5 million bail.
Officers initially responded to the residence in connection with a missing 12-year-old child.
Garbage and spoiled food were all around. The boy was eventually found sleeping under a bush in a neighbour's yard, police said. Pictures obtained by ABC affiliate KGO show furniture, trash and toys scattered at every angle, as if a storm had torn through the home. He was subsequently found but, while probing the family's Fieldstone Court home for the child, officials said unsettling issues came to light.
"I strive and I pride myself on being a good parent to my children", Rogers told CNN affiliate KGO/KTXL.
Rogers was originally released on April 9 after post $10,000 bail. She was released after posting $10,000 bail. Rogers was taken into custody.

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.
Hurlbut said he believed the children were home-schooled.
Prosecutors at his hearing said the children had been tortured for "sadistic purposes".
Ten children were rescued from a home near San Francisco where they had suffered years of abuse including waterboarding, throttling and being shot at with pellet guns and crossbows by their father, a court was told yesterday.
She now faces nine counts of felony child abuse. She was allowed to keep the children at that time.
Allen also denies the allegations. He was also charged on four felony counts, including corporal injury, assault with a firearm and criminal threats.
Citing the serious charges and allegations and the children's injuries, Pendergast set bail at $495,000.
