He pleaded not guilty Monday to seven felony counts of torture and nine counts of child cruelty. Bail is set at $495,000, which her private attorney, Barry Newman, says she can not afford to pay.
KRON4's Lydia Pantazes is at the courthouse this morning.
Their mother, Ina Rogers, denied nine counts of felony child abuse at Solano Superior Court in California on Wednesday.
Rogers says she home-schooled the children, but the two-storey Fairfield, Calif., home was not registered as a private school and neither were three prior addresses where the family lived in Fairfield and Vallejo, according to the California Department of Education.
Sharon Henry, chief deputy district attorney for Solano County, said she was "horrified" by their statements.
Juarez alleges Rogers assisted in the abuse and "dissuaded the children" from reporting their injuries, which include broken arms.
Rogers reporters earlier this week that the allegations against her and her husband are false.
Her husband, Jonathan Allen, faces multiple charges of torture and felony child abuse. He has pleaded not guilty and remains in Solano County Jail on $5.2 million bail. The investigation into the family started in March when their 12-year-old ran away.
With the assistance of Child Welfare Services and the Solano County District Attorney's Office, detectives with the Fairfield Police Department's Family Violence Unit initiated an investigation.
In addition to the squalor, Hurlbut said the children had been victims of intentional abuse causing puncture wounds, burns, bruises and wounds from being shot with a pellet gun, prompting the torture charges against Allen.
Fairfield Police previously said they removed the 10 children from the Fairfield, California home on March 31 after responding to a report of a missing 12-year-old.

Prosecutors said in the motion to increase Rogers's bail Wednesday that the children were also getting punched, strangled and bitten, shot with crossbows, were subjected to "waterboarding" and having scalding hot water poured on them.
"The children appeared to be skittish and spoke with speech impediments", Juarez added. The mother was released after posting a $10,000 bail. Rogers is now caring for several of the children while the others are with relatives, the network reported.
Authorities stated they subsequently arrested and booked Rogers into jail for youngster neglect. "The police demonized me all the way down to the names I picked for my children", Allen said.
Records obtained by the San Francisco Chronicle show Allen's abuse allegations date back to late 2011.
Prosecutors alleged Allen used a.22 caliber revolver in some of the crimes.
The parents of 10 children rescued from what California authorities call years-long abuse are both in jail after their mother was taken into custody Wednesday and her bail set at almost $500,000 to reflect the seriousness of the charges.
Allen pleaded no contest to a charge of corporal injury as part of a deal with prosecutors, and was sentenced to 180 days and three years of probation. The charges on Wednesday accompanied a new $495,000 bail.
"I want to tell them that I love them". Bail for a California mother of 10 children who officials say suffered long-term abuse was set at almost $500,000 after the judge said she remains a danger to the kids.
"My husband has a lot of tattoos, he looks like a scary individual, and that's why people are so quick to judge him".
It's unclear whether any California government agencies had an opportunity to intervene in the years authorities claim the 10 children suffered "horrific" abuse inside their suburban home.
