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 is set to go to trial in May.
Minding Hearts is building advocacy and peer support groups in each state. The groups are created to raise awareness, educate, and advocate for those that might not otherwise be heard. We are here for encouragement, education, and support. We cannot give legal advice, but we can try and direct you in the right direction with your case. Links to legal services are listed with their states. Please share and let’s grow our groups. We are here to support families and develop resources that maintain family integrity. We look forward to your support. If you would rather become active by donating, then visit the donation page.
