(Case made big news last year when one of the kids escaped and told someone what was going on)

David and Louise Turpin have each been sentenced to 25 years to life in prison after they pleaded guilty to holding captive and torturing their children for years in their California home.

"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."
The couple was arrested early last year after one of their 13 children - - who ranged in age from 2 to 29 - - managed to escape their filthy home in Perris and called police.

Authorities said the siblings had been isolated from the outside world and were often denied showers, medical care and food. They were sometimes tied up for "weeks or even months at a time," the Riverside district attorney said last year.

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.

"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."

25 years seems kinda low for a minimum.

I'm surprised that the parents weren't committed to some mental health program- - it seems they aren't quite sane...
