5 charged with disabled abuse appear in court
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Three family members charged with severely neglecting a dozen mentally disabled adults in their care in an upscale San Jose home are now back into custody.
Suspects George Dac Nguyen, Jennifer Ngo and Charles Nguyen were placed into custody after a judge increased their bail to $500,000 during their court appearance in Santa Clara County Superior Court on Monday.
The three had been released after each posted $10,000 bail.
Prosecutor Charles Huang says he believe a fourth suspect, Margaret Ngo, also scheduled to appear in court Monday afternoon, will receive a similar fate. A fifth suspect, Kathy Le, awaits further prosecution.
The five relatives were charged earlier this month with felony dependent-abuse and animal neglect. They each could spend up to 18 years in prison if convicted.
