Seven children, ages 7 to 17, were neglected by their mother, Sonia Kubisak, who claimed to be homeschooling them.

In March 2014, Kubisak moved the children to a campsite in Oklahoma, reportedly to escape an abusive relationship in Pennsylvania. Kubisak starved the children and medicated them with cattle wormer and flea treatment. When the children were rescued in August, the campsite was covered with human feces and rotting animal feed.

After they were rescued, the children were diagnosed with “multiple illnesses closely associated with neglect and malnutrition.” Kubisak was charged with seven counts of neglect.
