Clueless Dad: "I think the charges are drummed up, and lies...mostly lies". Uh...yeah. What about the thousands of videos, photos and DVDs?
I can't even fathom the sick minds of anyone who would do this:
Five girls may have been unconscious or asleep while being sexually molested — and filmed — in a Porterville home, Tulare County prosecutors say.
Steven Arthur, 31, and his former girlfriend, Jennifer Lynn Thurman, 32, face 23 criminal charges. And additional federal charges could be filed for possessing still and moving images of child pornography, Assistant Tulare County District Attorney Don Gallian said.
The images were found on dozens of compact discs in the home the suspects once shared, Gallian said.
Arthur and Thurman pleaded not guilty to all charges Monday at the Tulare County Pre-Trial Facility courtroom north of Visalia.
Those charges include 13 felony counts each of lewd acts with a child under 14 and single felony counts of oral copulation under 14.
They also face two counts each of felony sodomy and rape, both with unconscious victims.
Arthur and Thurman also face three misdemeanor counts each of annoying or molesting a child. Those charges stem from a hidden-camera footage of some of the girls using the bathroom and showering, Gallian said.
