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.

The parents each spoke before the sentencing.

"I'm sorry for everything I've done to hurt my children," Louise Turpin said, adding she believes God has a special plan for each of them. "I love them more than they could ever imagine."

David Turpin broke down in tears as he tried to address the court. His attorney read his statement, in which the father expressed hope for his children's success and said he hopes they remain close because their mother and father will not be with them.
