Children adopted by couple from Los Angeles county

Four siblings, currently (as of June 2011) in the age between 11 and 14, were allegedly abused by their adoptive parents. Between 2002 and 2008, several referrals of physical and emotional abuse were made, but were regarded unfounded after the children retracted their allegations.

In June 2010, one of the children again made allegations of physical and emotional abuse of the adoptive parents, initially backed up by one of the siblings, who later retracted the support of the allegations.

The Court of Appeals of California, Second District, Division Eight, believed the children were pressured by the adoptive parents to retract their allegations, threatening them with homelessness.
