    'House of Horrors' Adult Siblings Released From Hospital, Now Living in Rural California Home

    The seven adult children of alleged child abusers David and Louise Turpin have been released from the Corona Regional Medical Center and are now living together in a home in rural California, according to their lawyer.

    Lawyer Jack Osborn told ABC News exclusively the seven oldest Turpin siblings were released on Thursday and quietly transported to their new home, where they will be reunited with their family dog and able to make decisions for themselves. They will each have their own rooms with their own closets.
    “The adult siblings want to be known as survivors, not victims,” Osborn told ABC News. Many locals who have been following the case have taken to affectionately calling the Turpin children “The Magnificent 13.”

    So it looks like creepy uncle didn't get custody.

    The 13 children of David and Louise Turpin, the California couple accused of holding them captive and torturing 12 of them, are now enjoying freedom in three separate homes in Riverside County, authorities said on Monday.

    Word of their new homes follows a statement from Corona Regional Medical Center CEO Mark Uffer announcing that the Turpin siblings had been released from the hospital. He did not provide further details, citing privacy laws.

    Six of the children are minors and seven are adults.

    "On behalf of all of us at CRMC, we wish these brave siblings continued strength as they take the next steps in their journey," he said.

    The two youngest are now in one foster home in Riverside County, while the other four are at another home in the county. No home was able to accommodate all six children, a source close to the investigation said. The two youngest, in particular, will require a great deal of attention, the source added.

    "Their education was nonexistent," the source said. "The 17-year-old, who escaped, has a first-grade level education."

    House of Horrors: Teenage Girl Told 911 'My Sisters Are Chained Up' After Escaping Calif. Home

    In the small voice of a much younger child, reading from a piece of paper with her family’s address on it, the 17-year-old daughter of David and Louise Turpin called 911 early on Jan. 14 to report that they were allegedly abusing and even chaining up their children.

    Audio of the teen’s 911 call — made just before 6 o’clock that morning and which led to David and Louise’s arrest on numerous charges of abuse, false imprisonment and torture, among other counts — was released for the first time on Wednesday morning, at a preliminary court hearing for the Turpin parents in Riverside County, California.

    “I live in a family of 16 people and our parents are abusive,” the girl told the 911 operator while she was outside her family’s suburban Perris home, according to audio of the call that was played in court.

    “They are abusive,” the girl said. “And two of my sisters are chained up.”

    Two of the girl’s sisters and one of her brothers were chained to their beds, she said on the call, answering the dispatcher’s questions.

    A Southern California couple accused of beating, shackling and starving their 13 children as captives in the family's home pleaded not guilty on Friday to dozens of charges of torture, false imprisonment and abuse.

    David and Louise Turpin, who were arraigned in Riverside County Superior Court, could face life in prison if convicted on all counts.
    The defendants were each charged with 12 counts of torture, 12 counts of false imprisonment, seven counts of abuse of a dependant adult and eight counts of child abuse. Louise Turpin, 50, also faces an assault charge.
    David Turpin, 56, who worked as an engineer for aeronautics and defense contractors Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman, also was charged with one count of committing a lewd act on a child, plus eight counts of perjury over his claims that he was running a private school with his children as the students.

    The couple entered not guilty pleas to all charges and denied all allegations on Friday, said John Hall, a spokesman for county prosecutors.

    Judge Bernard Schwartz denied a defense motion to try the perjury counts apart from the other charges.

    Hall said the next court date would be Oct. 5 for a trial-readiness conference.

    Other way around. The father was against it and the mother let it happen.

    The parents who held their 13 children captive inside their California home pleaded guilty Friday to multiple charges, including torture, prosecutors said.

    David and Louise Turpin each pleaded guilty to 14 charges of torture, adult abuse, child endangerment, false imprisonment and more. They face 25 years to life in prison, the Riverside County District Attorney's Office said.

    Louise Turpin was seen wiping away tears as the judge read the charges.
    Uffer said he hasn't seen the children since they left the center last year, but an attorney for the adult Turpin children, Jack Osborn, told CNN, "Our clients are relieved that there will not be a trial and they are happy the district attorney was able to achieve this result."

    The adult children are doing "very well," Osborn said.

    "They have been living together, getting their education and moving their lives forward. They are all extremely bright, incredibly strong and resilient. They have been supportive of each other. "

    He added, "They view themselves as survivors."

    The Perris couple who admitted to the torture and abuse of the majority of their 13 children who were held captive in a “house of horrors” are scheduled to be sentenced in a Riverside courtroom on Friday.

    David Turpin, 57, and Louise Turpin, 50, will be sentenced to 25 years to life in prison as part of a deal that proceeded their guilty pleas to 14 felony charges back in February, according to the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office.

    The sentence effectively means the two will likely spend the rest of their lives behind bars, unless they’re granted parole when they become eligible in 25 years, according to Riverside County DA Mike Hestrin.

    That would have been the case regardless of whether the pair were tried and convicted on all counts prosecutors initially charged with, which totaled over 40, Hestrin said. The defendants would be eligible for elderly parole in 25 years because of their ages, as stipulated by state law.

    Hestrin noted the sentence was also the maximum punishment the defendants could have received.

    The couple pleaded guilty to counts including torture, false imprisonment, cruelty to an adult dependent and willful child cruelty. In exchange, they agreed to the maximum possible punishment.

    The charged stemmed from a case of horrific abuse that was only discovered when the couple’s 17-year-old daughter made a daring escape from the family’s home in the 100 block of Muir Woods Road in January 2018, using a deactivated cellphone to dial 911 for help, authorities said.

    In the chilling call, a portion of which was played in court last year, the 17-year-old told the dispatcher that she and her siblings were being abused by their parents, and that some of her siblings were chained up.

    “My parents are abusive. They abuse and my two little sisters right now are chained up,” she said in the call, according to a recording that was obtained by ABC News and released Thursday. She said one of her brothers was also tied up.

    When sheriff’s deputies arrived at the single-story house, they found some of her 12 siblings — whose ages ranged from 2 to 29 years at the time — shackled to beds. The children appeared emaciated and filthy; their surroundings were described as “dark and foul-smelling.”

    The teen relayed the deplorable conditions she and her siblings were being held in, noting it was difficult to breathe amid the squalor.

    “I can’t breathe because of how dirty the house is,” the girl said. “We don’t take baths. I don’t know if we need to go to the doctor.”

    She struggled to recall her own address, explaining that she rarely got out of the house. The daughter later told authorities she had been hit, choked and sexually abused by her father.

    The children reported being beaten and starved, subsisting on meager jalapeno baloney sandwiches while the parents feasted on things like Jersey Mike’s, pizza and fries, a deputy testified.

    Nearly all of the children were found to be severely malnourished; some of the older ones were so emaciated, first responded didn’t realize initially that they were adults, according to authorities.

    Only the youngest child, who 2 at the time, did not appear starved and mistreated.

    The plea agreement reached in the case ensured that each parent admitted to at least one count per child, prosecutors said in February.

    It also spared the victims the pain of having to testify at a trial, ensuring they didn’t relive the horror all over again. Jack Osborn, an attorney representing the adult Turpin children, told NBC’s “Today” before the parents pleaded guilty that none of the victims were looking forward to that prospect.

    Hestrin cited that consideration as part of the reason a deal was reached.

    “We needed to determine whether proceeding to trial was worth having the victims testify in this case that has
    received worldwide media attention,” he said. “We decided that the victims have endured enough torture and abuse.”

    “I personally met with the victims and, rest assured, they all are relieved to know this case has been resolved,” Hestrin added.

    "My parents took my whole life from me," said one of their daughters, identified as Jane Doe Number 4. She was one of two of the children, both now in college, who appeared in court Friday to offer testimony about how they suffered at the hands of their parents -- and about their hope for the future.

    "But now," she said, "I'm taking my life back."

    Today, the daughter said, she's living independently and "life is great."

    "I'm a fighter, I'm strong and I'm shooting through life like a rocket," she said, as her mother cried and wiped tears from her eyes.
    One of their sons, identified as John Doe Number 2, told the court, "I cannot describe in words what we went through growing up. Sometimes I still have nightmares of things that happened, such as my siblings being chained up or getting beaten."

    "But," he added, "that is the past and this is now." Today he's going to college and working toward a degree in software engineering, he said. He learned how to swim and ride a bike last year, and sometimes takes long rides. He has also learned, he said, to advocate for himself.

    He added a kind word for his parents and extended forgiveness.

    "I love my parents," he said, "and have forgiven them for a lot of the things they did to us."
    The court also placed new protective orders for each of the children, tailoring their length to each child.

    According to Jeff Moore, attorney for Louise Turpin, 10 of the children have 10-year restraining orders in place. Two have 5-year restraining orders and one had the restraining order dropped.

    Schwartz said the orders prevent David and Louise Turpin from having personal contact with the children -- whether in person, by mail, phone, social media or through third parties.
    David Turpin broke down in tears as he tried to address the court. His attorney read the beginning of his statement, in which the father expressed hope for his children's success and said he hopes they remain close because their mother and father will not be with them.

    "I thank God for all of my children," David Turpin's statement read, adding that he is sorry "if I've done anything to cause them harm."
