Combined, Cynthia and Dennis Perkins faced 150 counts alleging they raped two children (adopted children) and an adult, produced child pornography, and served schoolchildren baked goods on which Dennis Perkins had ejaculated, among other alleged crimes.
Last month, about half an hour before jury selection was scheduled to begin, Cynthia Perkins accepted a plea deal. She pleaded guilty to 3 of the 72 counts. She will be sentenced to 41 years.
Dennis Perkins was set to go to trial in May 2022, but new evidence has delayed his trial until January 2023.
