DA seeks to bar parents from contacting 13 kids kept captive

DA seeks to bar parents from contacting 13 kids kept captive

Prosecutors are seeking a protective order to keep them from contacting their children, all of whom have been removed from the home.

A family friend claimed 12 hours before the arrest, Mr and Ms Turpin had told them they planned to leave the home.

"We are requesting a no-contact criminal protective order", Riverside County District Attorney spokesman John Hall told the Daily News.

The siblings - ages 2 to 29 - have since been hospitalized.

They are accused of abuse that lasted for years, including putting some of their 13 children in chains, reports CBS News correspondent David Begnaud. The Turpin mother appeared perplexed the children were being questioned by authorities, reported CBS News. It's not clear whether the move had any role in the timing of the 17-year-old daughter's escape.

Experts say the siblings would likely be left with permanent physical and emotional damage, such as anxiety and depression, as well as issues around food.

When deputies arrived at the house, it was "extremely dirty", a police officer said. Authorities are now checking DNA to make sure that all of the children, who range in age from 2 to 29, are the offspring of Louise and David Turpin.

The pervasive child abuse hid in plain sight for years and was not uncovered until last week, when one of the couple's daughters slipped through a window and called 911 from a phone she found inside the house, the Riverside County Sheriff's Department said.

Now Teresa believes the horrific torture that the couple allegedly inflicted on their 13 children could all be down to their late-in-life experimentation with things they never experienced when they were teenagers.

"We rode a train out there cross country", she said.

Investigators have learned that the children were isolated from each other and locked in different rooms in small groups, Hestrin said. That press coverage led an attorney for David Turpin to raise the possibility of moving the trial outside of Riverside County. They are being held at the Robert Presley Detention Center on $13 million bail - $1 million for each child.

"I believe that my sister wanted a reality show because, you know, the very last conversation I had with her, before all this happened, she did actually say that she feels that they would be flawless for TV at one point", Billy Lambert said.

The charges against David and Louise Turpin include 12 counts of torture and 12 counts of false imprisonment, seven counts of abuse of a dependent adult and six counts of child abuse.

David Macher, a legal counselor speaking to David Turpin, disclosed to ABC News: "What we might want general society to know is that our customers are attempted to be pure, and that is a critical assumption", including, "We will give a lively barrier".
