A judge on Wednesday issued a protective ordering against “house of horror” mothers David and Louise Turpin, barring them from contacting any of their 13 children.
The order proscribes the Turpins from contacting their kids, except through attorneys or researchers, and will remain in effect until Jan. 24, 2021, KABC-TV reported.
The Turpin parents reportedly cannot saloon their children from witnessing in tribunal, “must not harass, strike, threaten, molest, destroy belongings, ” or stalk the victims and can have no personal linked with them.
The victims, which range in age from 2 to 29, were rescued on Jan. 14 from their home in Perris, California.
“Victims in these kinds of cases, they tell their narrative, but they tell it gradually. They tell it at their own tempo, ” Riverside County District Attorney Mike Hestrin told The Associated Press Wednesday. “It will come out when it comes out.”
The Turpin children remain hospitalized and are relieved to be out of the Perris home, which authorities have described as a torture chamber, Hestrin said.
Investigators have learned since the Turpins’ arrest 10 days ago that the children were shackled to beds, isolated from each other, didn’t have access to Tv or radios and, according to Hestrin, “lacked any kind of a deeper understanding of how “the worlds” worked.”
One of the couple’s older sons, nonetheless, was enrolled in a variety of class at San Jancinto’s community college, and Louise Turpin hauled him to and from class, and waited outside the classroom for him.
Louise, 49, and David, 57, have both pleaded not guilty to torturing, child abuse, false incarceration, dependent adult abuse and a lewd act on small children under age 14. If convicted on all accusations, they each face sentences of 94 years to life in prison.
