Father in California abused siblings case charged with perjury

Father in California abused siblings case charged with perjuryA California man accused along with his wife of keeping 13 siblings imprisoned, chained and starving in their suburban home was charged on Friday with perjury over his claims that he was running a private school with the children as his pupils. A judge also set a preliminary hearing date in June for David and Louise Turpin, whose arrest made international headlines in January after their emaciated teenage daughter escaped from the squalid home and called police. The eight newly filed felony perjury counts against David Turpin, 57, accuse him of lying on an affidavit he filed with the California Department of Education, certifying that the children were getting a full-time education in a private school, the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office said on Twitter.
